We are seeking to appoint an outstanding teacher to lead our Business, Economics and Computing provision. We deliver a broad curriculum across these key areas of the school offering GCSE in Business and Computing and A level, Economics at A level as well as the Finance Qualification from the LIBF at level 2 in year 9 and level 3 in the Sixth Form. The school has developed important business links and support which has ensured that opportunities in these key areas for enrichment and wider learning are varied and of high quality. This is an exciting opportunity within the schools development to be able to build on the current success while moulding the curriculum in these three vital areas. The numbers of students opting to take these subjects is increasing and this is contributing to increased opportunity to develop the courses further.

They should also be able to evidence a proven track record of high impact in teaching, learning and curriculum excellence, to support strong outcomes and learning experiences. The ability to extend students’ engagement beyond the school day, through extra-curricular would be an advantage.

The departments attained strong results last summer, especially in the Finance Qualifications in both year 9 and year 13.

Our ideal candidate will display:

  • A passion for teaching Business, Economics or Computing with evidence of enabling students to surpass expectations.
