An exciting opportunity has arisen for either an experienced Head of Department or a talented and enthusiastic teacher looking to take the step into middle leadership.  The Business Studies Department forms part of the Humanities Faculty, so benefits from wider faculty support, whilst maintaining its autonomy and independence.

This opportunity will allow you to shape the future direction of the Business Studies Department at The Downs School and offers additional responsibility, should that be of interest to you.

You will::

  • have a commitment to ensuring that all students reach their potential
  • be an excellent practitioner who can inspire studnets to learn
  • be able to expand upon our extra-curricular activities

Our School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We will ensure that all our recruitment and selection practices reflect this commitment. All successful candidates will be subject to Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks along with other relevant employment checks.
