We are seeking to appoint an inspirational and enthusiastic Key Stage 4 Leader to join our large and innovative department. The school is developing a modern curriculum that prepares students for the demands of a fast-paced, challenging world, and computer technologies will be at the centre of this. For this reason the school offers a three year KS4 programme that includes the opportunity of taking the popular options, AQA GCSE in computer science and OCR Nationals in Creative i-media. These qualifications lead on to A Level AQA computer science and Level 3 Cambridge Technical diploma in IT. KS5 teaching would be available for a suitably qualified candidate. The successful candidate will be expected to support the department as it continues to improve the quality of provision for all our KS4 students.

  • be passionate about Computing and ICT and have the desire to share that passion with students;
  • be a successful teacher across age and ability ranges;
  • be an innovative and inspiring classroom teacher;
  • have the potential for strong leadership and management and have good communication skills;
  • be able to develop challenging and exciting programmes of study for Key Stage 4 students, especially in terms of varied curriculum pathways in Computing and ICT.
