English at Kingsway Park High School aims to motivate and prepare our students for a rapidly changing world, by instilling in them the knowledge, reading, writing and oracy skills needed to be successful in life. We provide a broad and balanced curriculum which is delivered through high quality English lessons that encourage discussion and inspire our students in understanding the significance and influence of context when they are both reading and writing texts. This empowers students with the skills to independently interpret the world around them, become critical thinkers and to articulate their own views effectively. Through modelling intellectual curiosity and through having high expectations for all, English is a place where Kingsway students strive for excellence. Our vision is one of continuous development - we continue to refine our practice and to discover new ways to engage and enthuse the learners in our subject area. We place a high value on students developing resilience, independence and encourage them to strive for high aspirations. We are privileged to have excellent teaching facilities that include interactive whiteboards, visualisers for each of nine classrooms and a bank of Chromebooks available for independent study. We also are lucky enough to have a brand-new library complete with a whole range of exciting novels to inspire our students.

We are seeking to appoint a passionate, hard-working, and enthusiastic Teacher of English to join our thriving and successful department. The successful candidate will join a department that encourages collaboration, sharing and working as a team to ensure high quality lessons and resources for all students. The team regularly engages in reading, research and training to ensure that we are at the forefront of developments in English teaching - this includes teaching and learning, progress and attainment of students and curriculum development. In addition, they will actively and fully be involved in our extra-curricular provision and the wider life of the school. It is a very exciting time to join the KPHS English department as we strive to provide outstanding education and improve outcomes for our students.
