Kenton School is a vibrant and inclusive secondary school at the heart of the community in which we serve. With just over 1800 students, we are amongst the largest schools in the North East. At Kenton we are passionate about providing the very best education possible for young people in our city, our region and nationally and our strong and committed team share our vision of ensuring all our students not only reach their potential but that they are confident, happy and resilient students who treat each other with compassion and respect.
We are seeking applications from Mathematics, English or Science specialists to support small groups of students accessing alternative provision (typically two to three) with their core subjects whist in school. Kenton School has high aspirations for the qualifications all our students will achieve at the end of Year 11. The successful candidate will share those high aspirations, build excellent relationships and work with colleagues to provide steppingstones to success.
If you are the person we are looking for, you will have a proven track record of effective teaching or tutoring in either Science, Mathematics or English, the ability to teach other core subjects outside of your specialism, excellent behaviour management skills, an awareness of policies and other guidance on safeguarding and wellbeing and the ability to take appropriate action when required, and the interpersonal skills to challenge, inspire and motivate students to enable them to achieve their potential regardless of the barriers they face.
In return, Kenton School offers fantastic developmental possibilities due to its size, facilities and a forward thinking management.
