Jordanhill School is unique in Scottish education in being the only Grant Aided mainstream school funded directly by the Scottish Government. We are a community comprehensive school and our success is founded on placing our pupils and staff at the heart of everything we do. The school is renowned for its academic excellence and thriving programmes in sport, outdoor education, music, art and drama.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for us to recruit a full-time teacher of English to our thriving and ambitious English department.

English is a major strength within Jordanhill School with high levels of success at all levels. The current teaching commitment of the department is:

* P7: 4 periods

* S1/S2: 4 classes per year mixed ability

* S3-S4: National 4 and National 5

* S5/S6: Advanced Higher, Higher and National 5

Due to the nature of the school, there is a unique opportunity for the English Department to become involved in working with Primary. In P7 each class is timetabled to work with an English teacher for 2 periods per week, at which times identified groups of pupils take part in particular activities relating to English. This allows English teachers to plan actively with Primary colleagues to ensure effective pupil progression within the subject.

In addition, the department takes an active role in the extra-curricular life of the school: theatre and cinema visits, Junior and Senior Public Speaking, Creative Writing, Competitions and various other school trips. These are seen as playing a significant part in helping the department achieve its overall aims of enriching all pupils’ experience of the subject.
