Why not join our dedicated and hardworking team of staff committed to developing a love of literature and the improvement of literacy skills?  The Governors of Pershore High School wish to appoint an engaging and enthusiastic teacher of English from Easter 2021.  The English team has recently moved to a brand new building consisting of 8 classrooms, all with interactive touchscreens, a staff workroom, new library and small group intervention room.  The successful candidate will join the school at a very exciting time in its development as we take on our first cohort of 90 Year 7 students in September 2021 within Avonreach Academy Trust.


We currently have 1127 students on roll in Years 8-13 of which 161 are on the SEND Register, 35 of whom have EHCPs.  This includes 15 students who are part of our Mainstream Autism Base (MAB).  In addition, 16% of students are in receipt of the Pupil Premium Grant.  The school was rated Good by Ofsted at their last visit in September 2017 and we have outstanding pastoral provision.  Our highly successful school is steadily growing and student numbers are predicted to rise further in the next few years.


Pershore High School is a great place to work; our students are friendly and behave well, visitors to the school frequently comment on the calm and purposeful atmosphere that pervades our school.


Pershore High School takes safeguarding children very seriously and the successful applicant will be required to undertake an Enhanced Disclosure via the DBS. All applications must be made on the PHS application form - NO CVs please.
