The person we are seeking will:

  • be able to lead a large team in all aspects of KS4 teaching and learning;
  • monitor and track student progress at KS4 and plan intervention programmes as required;
  • be passionate about Business Studies and have the desire to share that passion with students;
  • be an innovative and inspiring classroom teacher;
  • be able to work collaboratively with a diverse team to enhance teaching and learning at Key Stage 4.
