Teacher of English

Monmouth Comprehensive School
Teacher of English
Part time (0.5), temporary contract
Commencing 1st September 2024 until 31st August 2025

We are very proud of our inclusive and aspirational school, and we have exceedingly high expectations of every single one of our students. We take great pride in enabling them to grow and to flourish. In order for that to happen, our students need to do two simple things - work hard and be kind. Our students and staff thrive in a community where consistency and routines go alongside us knowing each student well and supporting them to reach their potential.

We have the benefit of a magnificent award-winning school building that was recently completed under the 21st Century Schools programme. It is a wonderful modern facility that has education at its heart. Located in the centre of Monmouth, we serve our local community as well as other nearby areas in both Wales and England. We number around 1,700 students and 200 staff, and we are over-subscribed in every year group.

We are absolutely determined to provide an exceptional standard of education for every child that comes to our school, so that they have the opportunity to lead happy and successful lives. Our approach to Curriculum for Wales is founded on the importance of subjects and on the principle of powerful knowledge. Our work on this is the subject of a recent Estyn case study to share our practice more widely. Our pedagogy is founded on the research evidence of learning and on how to maximise student progress.

We are fully comprehensive and provide for a wide range of learning needs. Currently there are 14% of the school population on the Register for Additional Learning Needs. We also have an integrated Specialist Resource Base, which is also the subject of a recent Estyn case study for its exceptionally strong provision. Students come from a wide range of socio-economic backgrounds and the rolling average for FSM is 13.8%.

We welcome applications from candidates whose personal qualities and values reflect those in the person specification, and whose experiences also place them in a strong position to deliver the job description. A full induction programme and meaningful professional learning is offered to all staff.

You will find us to be a supportive, collaborative group of colleagues, who work to provide an exceptional standard of education for all of the students in our care. We take great pride in what we do, and we continue to be wildly ambitious for what we can achieve together in the future.
