Looking for career development?

A great opportunity has arisen for a Computing teacher to join our school.  We require a teacher who can continue to challenge our more able pupils who are accessing the GCSEs.  If you are an outstanding teacher with a strong belief in the potential of all learners and the opportunity to make a difference, look no further.

The timetable for teaching computing will be 3 days, so an additional subject for the remaining 2 days would be needed. 

The school offers comprehensive training in ASC, exceptional CPD support and development opportunities as well as a wellbeing day to be taken in term time.  You do not require SEN or Autism experience, many of our teachers have transitioned from mainstream settings.

Grange Park School offers a strong collaboration and outreach support as an autism specific provision for 11-19 year olds and has been accredited for over 10 years by the National Autistic Society (NAS). Grange Park school is currently judged as ‘Good’ by Ofsted, the school is very well placed to becoming Outstanding and is over subscribed.

We also offer more than the minimum 10% PPA. The school is part of a co-operative of 24 schools which provides greater opportunities and access for further career development.

Class sizes are small and have full time teaching assistants supporting classes to ensure pupils enjoy personalised learning.  

The computing department teaches a range of courses to help keep our students safe and prepare them for the digital world, as well as further study in this area.

Pupils are keen and highly motivated; they want to learn.

This post is ideal for a dynamic and motivated teacher who wants to develop knowledge and understanding of educating children with autism.  Expertise in teaching Computing is essential.
