The governors of Darland High School are looking to appoint a passionate teacher of English to join our Faculty of English and Communication. You will join a high performing team, who have experienced significant improvement in both KS3 and KS4 outcomes in recent years.

Darland High School is an 11-16 English medium comprehensive school with 850 students on roll. Serving a cluster of villages in between Wrexham and Chester, the school enjoys easy road and rail access to North West England and North Wales.

The school has a reputation for academic excellence, achieving results at both key stages, which are consistently above both local and national averages. Our Year 11 in 2017 achieved excellent results with 65% achieving at least 5 good GCSEs with English and Maths. We have close relations local community as well as with neighbouring schools, with whom there is a spirit of active curriculum collaboration. The school is set in extensive landscaped grounds and has benefitted from a major rebuilding programme, which saw new science block open in 2011 and the English move in to a new suite of classrooms in the main building. As a result of the improvements in the school, we are oversubscribed in most years. We are looking for someone who has a love of language and literature and is also able to teach English to GCSE level.
