Teacher of A Level English

Applications Close: 27th Jan 2023


We are looking for a dynamic A Level teacher to join a well-established and well-resourced English department for September 2023.  The department comprises four full-time teachers and one part-time teacher, following the Edexcel A Level (2015) course (9ET0) with the Drama, Prose and Poetry units and there are over 75 students in all.  Contact time with students is six hours per week, a lesson per day, and support outside of lesson time is regarded as an essential supplement.  The department also runs an Advanced English group, allowing students who are interested in humanities degrees in higher education to extend their experience, as well as Muse, a platform for the creative student voice, which includes a dedicated blog and podcast, interviews with past students, as well as occasional events and exhibitions. 

Hurtwood House is one of England’s most exciting and successful schools, specialising exclusively in the Sixth Form. We have an impressive academic record, a reputation for preparing students successfully for higher education and are renowned for the quality of our pastoral care.  A culture of high expectations, creativity and professionalism permeates the school and we encourage students and staff to work in partnership to achieve the academic and personal outcomes that are important to us. 

Hurtwood House has its own generous salary scale and benefits – our staff are welcome to join students in the first class dining facilities for three meals a day and there is a staff wellbeing programme, comprising in-school sessions and membership of the local leisure centre and its facilities.  Many of our teachers become involved in managing boarding house life for accommodation or an additional allowance.  We are a member of the Teachers’ Pension Scheme.
