Malmesbury School requires an enthusiastic, well-qualified teacher of English. The English Faculty is a dynamic and successful team with a history of very good exam results. The school has superb accommodation and the English Faculty occupies a suite of classrooms and a faculty office. All classrooms have interactive whiteboards. This is an excellent opportunity for professional development in a very supportive and caring school. The school occupies a modern building and English rooms are all grouped together around a faculty office with an interactive whiteboard and computer in every classroom. This post would be suitable for a highly competent NQT or a teacher with experience and a proven track record of success.
At Malmesbury School our vision is to be a happy, caring and excellent community. We are proud to be a truly comprehensive school providing an education of the highest quality for all the students within Malmesbury and the surrounding area.
In our most recent Ofsted inspection in May 2012, the inspectors found that in all areas the school is 'Outstanding'. One parental comment summarises what many others say; ‘This is a wonderful school. It nurtures, cares and educates the children’. In 2014 we established the Avon Teaching School Alliance and we now lead a group of excellent local schools and universities in providing high quality professional development opportunities to staff at all stages in their careers.
In March 2015 we established the Athelstan Multi Academy Trust which consists of three secondary schools (Malmesbury School, Bradon Forest School and The Dean Academy), two in North Wiltshire and one in Gloucestershire. The Trust offers further career development opportunities for colleagues to work across more than one school in a supportive environment. In addition to the Teaching School and trust opportunities, teaching staff at Malmesbury School have a wealth of employee benefits including:
- An excellent induction programme including support for those returning to teaching/new to schools.
- A comprehensive in-school CPD programme including specialist training using external providers.
- Termly teaching and learning and Athelstan Trust newsletters that share best practice and latest news.
- Faculties/teams that promote continual collaboration and sharing of resources to reduce workload and improve provision for students.
- Excellent career progression opportunities.
- An extensive student enrichment and trip programme.
- An on-site counselling service.
