Head of Computer Science (starting September 2017)

The School is looking for an energetic, enthusiastic and innovative Head of Department to teach and lead the Computer Science Department, following the retirement of the current post-holder. The successful applicant will have a good degree in an appropriate discipline, relevant teaching experience and a passion for the leadership and teaching of the subject. In the first instance, the post-holder is likely to be the only Teacher of Computer Science.

The School teaches Computer Science at GCSE (two sets) and A-level (one set), and is particularly interested in increasing A-level take-up of the subject. The School currently follows the OCR Computer Science J276 specification at GCSE and the OCR H446 specification at A-level.

It would be advantageous to be able to contribute to the School’s numerous extra-curricular activities. In addition to many inter-school sports, activities include the Combined Cadet Force, Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, School Orchestra, Chess Club and School Magazine.

Part-time (approx. 0.35) Teacher of English (starting September 2017)

The school is looking to appoint an enthusiastic and innovative teacher of English to complement the existing skills base within a department comprising of both full-time and part-time members of staff.

All pupils are taught and examined in AQA English language and English Literature at GCSE and English Literature is taught at A-level.  Teaching is delivered in the main classroom block and there is a studio area which is used as a resource for teaching drama in English.

The successful candidate should feel confident delivering both Key Stage 3 and 4, therefore, good classroom management skills are essential; as is the desire and capability to work with, and develop the potential of, more able students.  With recent specification changes at GCSE the need has come to redesign course materials and their associated schemes; we are a forward-thinking team, always open to new ideas. The new appointee will therefore be actively encouraged to share a fresh perspective and contribute to the writing/modification of schemes and assessment materials.

The extra-curricular side to school life is particularly important, and the English Department organises a school drama and dance event; House poetry competition; a creative writing group; a senior debating club; a range of theatre trips and a school magazine.   We would expect the successful candidate to take an active part in some of these extra-curricular activities.
