Teacher of English with the opportunity for Leader of KS5 English


Teacher of English with the opportunity for a TLR 2a for Leader of KS5, English for the right candidate


Required for September 2020

Phoenix is a multi-cultural 11-19 secondary school, serving 1900 students in the north of West Bromwich close to the border with Walsall in the West Midlands. Opened in September 2010, as a result of the merger of two local schools, Phoenix has established itself as one of the highest performing schools in the area, an accolade achieved through commitment to continually improving the quality of teaching and learning and the provision of an exciting and dynamic learning experience for students. Our sixth form of around 250 students offers a broad array of L3 academic and vocational qualifications.

Over recent years examination results have been improving rapidly and this year’s early un-validated progress measure is +0.09 (FFT). Phoenix is a school that aspires to turn every child’s dream into reality; believes that there is no limit to what can be achieved and succeeds through passion, commitment and determination.

We are seeking to appoint a highly talented, qualified teacher of English with the opportunity to lead on KS5 in our friendly department. You will have a confident understanding of the curriculum and an innovative approach to learning. We are ideally seeking an excellent practitioner who is looking for a new opportunity to take a lead in developing and inspiring students in English.

This position provides an excellent opportunity for a qualified teacher to develop their passion for learning and create a positive and inspiring learning environment for our students. This will suit a teacher who has a proven track record of results and looking for a new challenge in a successful English  department. As a school we have a fabulous CPD offer to support colleagues at whatever point in their career they are from our ITT to our senior leaders.

Phoenix is one of only a few schools nationally to benefit from the government’s priority schools building programme and our state of the art facilities are second to none.

The students and staff at Phoenix face an exciting future. If you would like to be part of a school that is committed to becoming the very best, and if you can inspire and motivate our students, you could be the person for this role.
