Why William Edwards School?

William Edwards is a large, successful, harmonious and thriving mixed 11-16 comprehensive school. Pupil outcomes across the school are historically strong. However, life at William Edwards is about so much more than just GCSE outcomes. We are proud of our national reputation for sport, the arts are extremely strong and we are proud to boast the largest Duke of Edinburgh Award cohort in the East of England. We are one of only a small number of secondary schools nationally to hold both the Artsmark Platinum and the Youth Sports Trust Gold Award for our work in these diverse fields.

The MFL Department is inclusive to pupils and colleagues alike and aims to provide an outstanding and culturally enriching education in French and German to our pupils.  The successful candidate joins an experienced, reflective and outward-looking team working with evidence-based research through NCELP and EEF.  Our ambitious plans include working with local and international partners to secure the prestigious International School Award.

Following the school’s most recent inspection in May 2019, Ofsted said that “pupils who spoke to inspectors were effusive about their experience in school” and were are delighted that our recent inspection captured our considerable strengths in teaching, pastoral care, behaviour, pupil support and curriculum. We are pleased that these ‘cornerstones’ of high quality education remain strong at the school.



This is an exciting time to join SWECET as the Trust has recently grown to 6 schools. SWECET is a realistic and forward-thinking Trust which genuinely values its workforce.


In return for their dedication to achieving our vision, we offer our colleagues:

  • A supportive and friendly work environment;

  • Competitive salaries;
