We are seeking to appoint a dynamic, enthusiastic and well-qualified English teacher to join our friendly and hard-working team from September 2020. Applications are welcome from experienced teachers, and the successful applicant will teach English across KS3 and KS4. The successful candidate will work alongside the Director of Faculty on an area of responsibility within English. We can offer excellent opportunities for career development in a faculty committed to rapidly improving the quality of teaching and learning. The English team consists of 6 teachers and works with MFL as part of the Communications Faculty.

At The Dean Academy our vision is Enjoyment, Achievement, Community. We are proud to be a truly comprehensive school providing an education for all the students in Lydney and the surrounding area. The school is an 11-16 academy with 601 students on roll in a pleasant rural setting on the southern edge of the Forest of Dean. Many of our staff travel from Bristol, Cheltenham, Gloucester, Newport and Cardiff. It is not uncommon for many of our staff to car share.
The Dean Academy is sponsored by The Athelstan Multi-Academy Trust.
In our most recent Ofsted inspection in February 2017, the inspectors commented that ‘the improvements in teaching, learning and assessment have been sustained and more recent developments have started to raise the quality further’ and that ‘students respond well to verbal and written feedback from the teacher, work well with each other and try hard to do their best.’
Please note that this post requires the successful candidate to undergo full DBS screening and The Dean Academy is committed to promoting and safeguarding the welfare of students.
The Dean Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
We particularly welcome applications from under represented groups including ethnicity, gender, transgender, age, disability, sexual orientation or religion.
