Head of English


The Mount School York is looking to appoint an enthusiastic and committed Head of English, due to the current post holder retiring. The successful candidate must be able to teach English Language and English Literature to GSCE and A Level and be committed to playing a key role in whole school productions, working collaboratively with Drama staff. This is a full-time role, but a part-time position could be considered.

The Mount School York is a thriving boarding and day community set in 16 acres of beautiful grounds located ten minutes’ walk from York’s historic city centre. The Mount is a school for girls aged 2 to 18 and boys aged 2 to 4. We are an iPad school and all pupils and staff have iPads and use them as an integral tool in their teaching and learning. In a recent ISI Inspection (November 2018) the School was rated ‘excellent’ in both areas of educational quality. Find out more by visiting www.mountschoolyork.co.uk.

The Mount School York is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, and applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service.

Applications for the Head of English are invited from ambitious, talented individuals who are passionate about teaching the subject and working with young people. There is a requirement for the successful candidate to also give to the extra-curricular programme of the School.
