We have an exciting opportunity for a hardworking, energetic and innovative Teacher of English to join our English Faculty at Rydens Enterprise School & Sixth Form College. We are looking for an inspirational teacher who is committed to bringing out the best in every student.  The ability to teach to A Level is desirable but not essential. 

We offer an outstanding professional development programme, a successful, supportive and highly strategic Senior Leadership Team and an opportunity to be part of a dynamic developing organisation.

NQT's are welcome to apply – we offer an excellent NQT programme and development opportunities along with a ‘NQT Welcome Bonus’ paid in July 2017.

Rydens Enterprise School and Sixth Form College (RES) is an 11-18 mixed comprehensive academy serving principally the areas of Walton on Thames, Hersham and Molesey. The school is well situated with access to both the A3 and M25, as well as being within walking distance of both Walton on Thames and Hersham stations.

RES is at a very exciting time in its development. RES has been working in close partnership with The Howard Partnership Trust (THPT) since Easter 2016 and RES formally joined THPT in September 2016. RES is currently on a rapid improvement journey and has already benefited in many areas from the strategic direction provided by THPT to support the school in moving forwards.

This support was recognised in the Ofsted report from June 2016 after THPT had been leading the school for only 7 weeks:
•    ‘Current leaders, in conjunction with THPT, have already brought about rapid improvements’
•    ‘There is a genuine passion and commitment among leaders to develop an inclusive learning culture with high expectations for the achievement of all pupils’
•    ‘Pupils conduct themselves well around the school and enjoy positive and supportive relationships with their teachers and with each other’

The new school build currently underway and due for completion late 2017 will also support us in delivering the best possible experience for students at RES into the future. The main school itself will have state of the art, specialist facilities that include a full range of specialist classrooms for science and technology subjects, dedicated quiet study areas , six court sports hall, fitness suite, dance studio, separate gym, theatre space, … AND MUCH MORE!

Tours around the school are warmly welcomed.

Please note we do not accept CVs.
