Vacancy Description / Summary

We are looking for an excellent, committed and dynamic teacher who will lead this important area of the curriculum. This is a senior professional position and, in common with other such positions, cannot be precisely defined. The successful candidate will develop the English Department, be a central figure in subject development and have the skills and passion to ignite the enthusiasm and creative thinking of our students. The School usually operates a 40 period week and this post is likely to teach approximately 29–30 periods of English, plus a contribution to the school’s co-curriculum.

About the School

The Edinburgh Academy is a modern, exciting, vibrant co-educational school for 2 to 18 year olds. Housed on two characterful sites near the centre of Scotland's capital, the school provides a caring environment that provides an exceptional tailored academic offering alongside a broad co-curricular programme in expressive arts, outdoor education, sport and voluntary service. Our overriding ethos is derived from the school motto: ‘Always Excel’ as this informs our focus on pupil wellbeing and character development, giving our students the self-confidence, self-belief, resilience and determination to do their best. At the Edinburgh Academy we aim to work closely with parents so that our pupils find and unlock their potential, discover ways that our students can succeed and help them to learn new things about themselves as they grow into young adults.
