We are seeking to appoint an inspirational and enthusiastic teacher of English to join our large and successful department. English enjoys a strong reputation within the school: our results are good at all Key Stages and our A Level English Literature and English Language courses are very popular choices. The position would be suitable for an ECT. Applications from experienced teachers would also be welcome. The ability to teach Film & Media would be advantageous.

The person we are seeking will: 

  • Be passionate about English and have the desire to share that passion with students.
  • Be an innovative and inspiring classroom teacher.
  • Be committed to helping all students make outstanding progress.
  • Be able to work collaboratively in a large and diverse team.
  • Be reflective and eager to develop their teaching skills.

Little Heath School is a highly successful comprehensive school (1658 on roll, including 366 in the Sixth Form) situated in a pleasant semi-rural setting to the west of Reading, with good access to road and rail links. The school has recently benefited from a significant and transformational building project, opening a new £15 million main block in spring 2021. New staff will also be given their own laptop to work on and their own classroom base when they join.

As a school, we pride ourselves on our Continuing Professional Development Programme, which supports teachers to continually improve their practice in innovative ways, collaborating with other members of staff. 

This role has been identified as public facing in accordance with Part 7 of the Immigration Act 2016, and therefore the ability to converse at ease with pupils/members of the public and provide advice/instruction in accurate spoken English is essential for the post.
