Further Information

Norham High school is seeking to appoint a Teacher of English who will join and strengthen the Department. We are looking to appoint a dynamic and enthusiastic teacher with high expectations, who will be passionate about their subject, able to inspire and motivate young people. They must be committed to the highest standards of teaching and learning, through lesson planning, and high quality assessment.

To be successful, you will:
• be an excellent practitioner who thinks creatively and has the potential and desire to continue to improve
• have a passion for English along with excellent subject knowledge and be able to communicate this to students.
• be an effective and committed team player who values the opportunity to take risks and who relishes challenge.

The School has been through a challenging time recently due to a poor Ofsted report in October 2018, but actions have already been taken to address those issues, particularly around behaviour and progress. The School has already moved forward and the Norham you will experience is not the School reflected in the Ofsted report. We are absolutely committed to continue to improve to secure excellent academic outcomes for our pupils and to ensure that we remove any barriers to learning. That starts with excellent teaching and we would like you to be part of our journey if you are committed to changing the lives of young people through education.

If you would like further information, please contact Lucy Roderick, Headteacher, on (0191) 200 5062
