English Teacher, Oakmoor School, Bordon.

Closing date:  26 May 2020

Oakmoor School is a brand new, state of the art secondary school situated in a 22 acre tree lined site on the edge of the South Downs National Park.  We are a friendly, vibrant school with high standards and expectations. We pride ourselves on knowing every young person as an individual and challenging each of them to have the highest possible aspirations. The Oakmoor ethos is encapsulated by our motto: Ambition, Courage, Excellence. 

Our vision is for every student to succeed in English.  All students will leave Oakmoor School with high levels of literacy and able to apply their skills in the world beyond school.  Students will have an appreciation of a range of literature to inspire them academically and in their own lives.

We are looking for an enthusiastic, highly skilled teacher to play a significant role in shaping our growing team.  We believe that all students can succeed in English, and that the best way to ensure that this happens is through world-class teaching of both reading and writing.  As a school, we have high expectations of students both in terms of academic achievement and conduct, and we have developed rigorous systems to ensure that students meet these expectations.

We are a supportive and friendly team who work collaboratively on all aspects of teaching and learning.  Each member of the department is passionate about English and focused on doing the very best for every student in our school. We are always working together to improve our practice and inspire students to love English in the same way that we do.

We do hope you find the information pack useful and will inspire you to join us on our exciting journey to becoming an outstanding school.
