We are thrilled to announce a fantastic opening for the Head of English position at our prestigious Academy. The main goal of this role is to provide guidance, inspiration, and assistance to a talented department, ensuring the delivery of top-notch teaching and learning, ultimately leading to remarkable outcomes.

The perfect candidate for this position will have previous experience in leading English or be a skilled English teacher who is ready to embrace this chance for middle leadership.

Moreover, the successful candidate will be a high achiever, consistently setting and maintaining high expectations to drive exceptional results.

At Winton Community Academy, our students are diverse, exciting and talented – and the same is true of our staff.

We are also noted for our ‘can do’ attitude. We are keen, always, to encourage new and/or young staff to make their mark as soon as they are ready.

We are proud to serve the communities around Andover in the centre of Hampshire, a short commute from Winchester, Salisbury and many picturesque Hampshire villages. Ofsted judged us as a ‘Good academy’ in January 2018 and with a new, passionate Principal, Rebecca Clark in place, we are looking to build upon our strengths and develop into a truly outstanding place to learn and teach.
