The English Department is a focal point for Ysgol Aberconwy; a place where students have the opportunity to excel. For the last three years the department has achieved rates at higher than national average levels on a range of measures, including A-C grades. Our most recent exam results (2019) show our GCSE pass rate was 69%, with an average literacy point score of 40. The successful candidate will be joining a forward thinking department, working hard to develop the subject delivery within the school, to give pupils meaningful learning experiences as well as extra-curricular opportunities including guest speakers, trips (locally and nationally), theatre visits and celebrating World book day!

In return, we offer you:
• A strong commitment to professional development;
• A school with high aspirations and a genuine opportunity to make a difference;
• An opportunity to help shape teaching and learning and our alternative curriculum;
• A dedicated and supportive team of professional staff and governors;
• Strong links with other local schools for partnership working and support;
• A strong community spirit;
• A vibrant and interesting place to work.

This is an exciting time to join Ysgol Aberconwy, a mixed 11-to-18 comprehensive school of over 1000 pupils. Set in its own extensive campus on the banks of the beautiful River Conwy, the school is situated in the medieval town of Conwy on the North Wales coast adjacent to the Snowdonia National Park. As a PFI School, we are exceptionally well resourced and maintained, and we have developed a significant reputation locally for the quality of our pastoral care as well as our academic success. Numbers in the school will have risen by 30% over the last five years in September, and we have developed specialist resource centres to support children with dyslexia, autism and other learning needs.
