Teacher In Charge Of Computer Science - Term Time

Sir Roger Manwood's School, Sandwich

  • Ref:KCC886-5428-156T
  • Posted:07/02/2019
  • Pay:MPS/UPS
  • Start Date:Sep 2019
  • App Close Date:25/02/2019 at 12:00

There are 3 computer rooms in the School.

All Computer Science lessons are located in one of them.

The School is lucky to have 3 well qualified and enthusiastic IT technicians, led by an IT Manager, and the department is well serviced by them.

At Key Stage 3, Computer Science is taught in form groups of 32 for 1 hour per fortnight, but the intention is to raise that to 2 hours per fortnight from September 2019.

At Key Stage 4, Edexcel Computer Science GCSE is offered and there is 1 class in each of Year 10 and Year 11 running. As for all option subjects, Computer Science runs on 5 one hour lessons per fortnight.

Computer Science A Level has never been offered at Key Stage 5 but we believe there is great potential for it to do so. However, there is a great deal of interest amongst students in the lower school for programming and computer science in general, and we are convinced that the right candidate would be able to create a thriving and energetic department with high numbers taking the subject at Advanced Level.

The successful candidate will be the sole member of the department but, if, as we believe, there are enough students interested in the A Level to make it viable in future, then there would be scope for the department to grow in the future.

This is an excellent opportunity for someone who is passionate about their subject and who has a talent for passing that on to young people. The person could be someone with years of experience or be someone in the first few years of their teaching career. The most important qualities we are looking for are energy, drive, passion and, of course, subject knowledge.


Information about the school

Sir Roger Manwood’s School is a mixed grammar school for students aged 11-18. The school was granted Academy status on 1 March 2011. We have 1007 students in total, 260 in the Sixth Form and 55 boarders. In September 2014, the school began an expansion from being a 4 form entry to a 5 form entry. The school is set in particularly attractive grounds and has excellent facilities.

The school was inspected by OfSTED in April 2012. The inspectors judged the school to be outstanding in every respect. In the achievement of the pupils, in the quality of the teaching, in the behaviour and safety of the pupils, in leadership and management and in the overall effectiveness of the school the judgements of the Inspection team were in every case the top grade.

Academic results are consistently of a very high standard. As a result we appear prominently in the national league tables. The vast majority of our Sixth Formers go on to the most competitive universities including Oxford, Cambridge, UCL, Kings and Warwick. The extra-curricular life of the school is a very striking feature of life at Manwood’s.

There is an exceptionally wide range of sporting and cultural activities which all attract high levels of participation. There are also imaginative international ties, including those with schools in Germany, China, the Gambia and India.

The school has a warm, friendly atmosphere. The care, guidance and support offered is outstanding and is much appreciated by students and parents alike. The mixed nature of the school and its boarding element help to create a family ethos which helps to make the school as successful as it is.
