Teachers’ Main Pay Scale (Fringe Area)
Start date: January 2021
We require an English Teacher with excellent subject knowledge who can combine academic rigour and achievement with a passion for the subject. We want our students to continue to be inspired to develop a lifelong love of literature and reading.
The post holder will be expected to teach across all key stages and ’to contribute to’ this dynamic and forward-thinking department. As partway in the school year the timetable would include some teaching of some History.
The Priory School is a vibrant and exciting Church of England comprehensive school. We are seeking an exceptional candidate who is fully committed to securing excellent outcomes for all. The school has invested in a full programme of staff development, including opportunities for professional coaching. The successful candidate would be fully supported in ongoing professional development, as well as being integrated into a talented staff body.
The school has 777 students including a Sixth Form. We benefit from excellent facilities which are set to improve further due to our expansion programme as student numbers grow. One of two secondary schools in the town of Dorking, we aim to provide inspirational teaching in a caring and supportive environment. Our Christian ethos sets us apart from other schools but we welcome staff and students from all backgrounds.
In February 2018 Ofsted rated the school ‘Good’, and we were awarded ‘Outstanding’ in our SIAMs inspection in December 2015. Results are consistently in line with national averages. Our mission is to exceed expected outcomes.
Closing date: Wednesday 7 October 2020
