King Edward VI Handsworth Wood Girls’ Academy
Director of English
£56,082 – £61,882 per year
Required from April 2024
Due to the promotion of our current Director of English to a MAT wide English Leadership role within their School Improvement Team, we are seeking to appoint a Director of English from Easter 2024. The Director of English will take a major role in driving forward the vision of the school with all internal and external stakeholders. This will apply to running a high performing English Department and as an integral member of the Extended Leadership Team. As a member of the Extended Senior Leadership Team, it is anticipated that you will have ambition for promotion to Assistant Head in the next 24-36 Months. This role is therefore one where the skills and expertise of senior leadership are developed in addition to those linked to the leadership of a Core Subject within the school. A whole school responsibility will be agreed with the post holder and provision made for them to undertake this whilst in post. It is also expected that the Director will have line management responsibility for another area of the school. The successful candidate will be fully supported in their career and professional development through ongoing CPD and a commitment to personal development.
King Edward VI Handsworth Wood Girls’ Academy is an 11-18 comprehensive school in the north-west of Birmingham. Our student intake is from a variety of ethnic backgrounds, making for a very harmonious and happy school. We truly believe that high aspirations can transform the life chances of our students, underpinned by our drive to develop in our students the universal values of Scholarship, Character and Community.
