One of the highest achieving schools in the country is looking for a teacher of English and Drama to drive the department even beyond their already impressive accomplishments. You will slot into the well-established department with plenty of support and assistance from the team, as an NQT or a more experienced teacher of English and Drama.

The ideal candidate will teach right across the board, from KS3-5 in either English or Drama, or both subjects if possible and the standard of teaching is already very high at the school, so you’ll be at the top of your game challenging some of the country’s brightest and most able young students. In and around the curriculum you are encouraged to let your creativity flow, particularly as a teacher of the Arts, so dynamic lesson plans and inspiring classroom delivery will be expected.

A teacher of English and Drama at this school can expect a salary in line with both the Main and Upper pay scales for outer-London and TLR’s possibly available. In the event that you are hired on an immediately permanent basis then you can expect a standard monthly salary, however if the position is taken up on a temp-perm basis you will be paid weekly on a daily rate in line with your salary scale point.

Behaviour at the school is very good and there is very much a willingness to learn, progress and excel throughout their studies. Ofsted most recently graded this school ‘Good with Outstanding Features’ with teaching and learning graded ‘Outstanding’. This is a relatively new academy and they’re nothing if not ambitious, pushing innovative and forward-thinking strategies and policies to enhance the learning experience at the school, which ultimately improves the professional environment in which staff find themselves. Now is the perfect time to join this exciting academy as an English and Drama teacher, further your career and really hone your skills to be one of the best teachers in the country!

Candidates will be subject to a variety of checks including an enhanced DBS check, full references including your most recent employer and eligibility to work in the UK. Step Teachers are fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment.

If you’re an English and Drama teacher for whom this doesn’t sound quite right, perhaps you know someone who might be more excited by this opportunity. In which case, pass this vacancy on to them and get rewarded with some Amazon vouchers to spend on yourself! If you want this all to yourself – you ambitious thing you – then drop us an email with your CV attached using the information below.
