All posts are covered by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exemptions) Order 1975 and you will be required to declare whether you have any criminal convictions on being offered a post.  The Arnewood School is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.


Colleagues in the English Faculty work hard to ensure students achieve very good results at GCSE, A/S and A Level in English and Media Studies. The school received a good judgement from Ofsted (2019). English was particularly praised for the exceptional promotion of achievement for students of all academic abilities.

At key stage 3, students are placed in mixed attainment groups. We aim to encourage debate and discussion, promote a love of reading and develop independent and critical thinking. We believe that providing a rich and varied diet of reading across our literary heritage will enable students to understand their cultural capital. We seek to inspire pupils by reading and emulating the work of wordsmiths from our literary canon – from great novelists and poets to skilful orators For GCSE (AQA), we retain mixed attainment groups.

Most English lessons are taught in a suite of eight adjacent rooms on the first floor of the Main Building; resourcing for the subject is good. Clerical and reprographic support is available and staff have direct access to reprographic and I.T. facilities. All staff have laptops or iPads, just as all year groups can access and are able to buy or lease laptops/iPads. They are able to take them home as a family learning resource. We set homework through the school’s virtual learning environment (Firefly). The English Faculty maintains links with Hampshire Inspection and Advisory Service for Education; the department also works with the language co-ordinators of our local primary schools, particularly in view of our significant cross-phase liaison to improve literacy for all.

Applicants must be skilled practitioners, willing to plan and prepare to a high level; the ability to co-ordinate and participate in our extensive programme of extra-curricular activities is welcomed.
