Thank you for your interest in Jobs with Queen Elizabeth School.
We are an 11-16 mixed comprehensive school with just over 1000 students. Our students come from a wide range of ethnic, cultural and social backgrounds; this diversity creates an interesting range of exciting opportunities and educational challenges.
Queen Elizabeth School is a dynamic and progressive place to teach. We have good support from our governors and a strong relationship with parents. The focus on further improvement revolves around the school’s main purpose of raising student attainment through:
- High quality teaching and learning
- High standards of behaviour for learning
- High quality, professional relationships
- Developing a growth mind-set in staff, students and parents
Queen Elizabeth School School students learn best when they are engaged in active learning, both within and outside the classroom.
Our students respond very well to teachers who take firm control of the lesson and create a positive learning environment, adhere to the school’s behaviour strategy consistently, command respect and show them respect, challenge them intellectually, and demand nothing less than their very best in terms of work and behaviour.
Queen Elizabeth School is a great place to be a student and a member of staff. Staff have to work extremely hard to achieve the outstanding outcomes that they currently do achieve for our students. You will be working with committed colleagues who see working with students as a vocation.
You will also be richly rewarded for your commitment to our students by their sparky engagement with their own learning and their recognition that you are making a difference to their life chances by your high quality teaching. In short, our students demand much of us, but give a great deal back.
I look forward to hearing from you, and to discovering how you could contribute to Queen Elizabeth School's journey to excellence.
Mrs R McPherson
