Newport Girls' High School



Thank you for your interest in NGHS.  Any vacancies are advertised below.


  • Teacher of English (maternity cover)

    The governors of Newport Girls' High School wish to appoint an outstanding Teacher of English to cover a maternity leave from 22 January 2022 for up to one year. This is a full time post and the successful postholder will teach English to all year groups including English and English Literature at GCSE. Our ideal candidate will also be able to teach Poetry to A-level classes. S/he will join a highly successful and friendly team of staff. There may be the opportunity of a more permanent post in 2022, but this is not guaranteed at this stage. If you are an ECT, you will benefit from the support of an outstanding Head of Faculty and an experienced team of staff including a professional mentor who is a member of SLT. We have two current ECTs in school and are working hard to ensure the new framework is fully implemented. Experienced colleagues are also most welcome to apply; we always appoint the best fit candidate for the post in our school irrespective of sex, gender, race or length of teaching experience. NGHS is a very warm and friendly school where staff work harmoniously and collaboratively together. Senior leaders and governors place great emphasis on worklife balance and our Staff Wellbeing Charter can be found in the application pack. NGHS is also a designated DFE Flexible Working Ambassador School. We look forward to welcoming a new member of staff to the School in January 2022.

    The closing date is Monday 18 October at 9am. Interviews will be held most likely on Friday 22 October 2021. 

    We cannot offer the opportunity to visit NGHS prior to application, however there is a virtual tour on the website.
