At Kenton School, we strongly believe in our motto of ‘all different, all equal’ ensuring that we cater for the needs of all our students, recognising their special gifts or talents. With just over 1800 students, we are one of the largest schools in the North East, however despite our size, we pride ourselves on retaining a family friendly atmosphere and ensuring that our students receive the best possible experience through quality first teaching, excellent pastoral support and a strong team who are absolutely committed to ensuring all our students achieve their potential.

We are seeking an innovative and passionate English specialist to join our team providing high quality lessons through effective planning, application of a wide range of teaching and learning strategies and through use of data and assessment to track and inform practice.

If you are the person we are looking for, you will possess a proven track record of effective training or teaching practice underpinned by a passion for the subject and broad base of subject knowledge. You will possess the ability to work effectively with all students, engaging them through exciting yet challenging lessons and embedding a culture of positive behaviour for learning.
