Required from 1st September 2020

 

We’re looking for a creative and enthusiastic colleague to join our team in Discovery College.  The ability to teach across a number of subjects particularly Maths, English and Humanities to KS2/3 would be advantageous; primary trained colleagues are therefore encouraged to apply.  The successful colleague will help to bridge the gap between primary and secondary school, to develop students’ emotional literacy and increase their confidence to access learning.                        

Whether you are at the start of your career or an expert teacher we will focus on what you will bring to the academy and most importantly what impact you will have on our students.

With our ethos of ‘Learning, Respect and Belonging’, we have high aspirations for everyone and expect everyone to contribute positively to the school by working hard and participating in school activities.  We treat everyone as an individual and value personal strengths and qualities.  Homewood School is part of Tenterden Schools’ Trust working in collaboration with local primary schools serving the beautiful Wealden town of Tenterden and the surrounding villages.  All teaching staff are provided with an IT device and there is also a nursery based on the school site which offers discounts to Homewood Staff.

It’s a competitive market out there and we want to know what it is that makes you the one we can invest in.  Detail your successes in your covering letter and get us excited about you. 

Close date:  applications will be considered upon receipt

An application form and more information can be accessed via the school websitewww.homewood-school.co.uk or please contact Ellie Reid, Human Resources at vacancies@homewood.kent.sch.uk.

Information about the school

Homewood School & Sixth Form Centre is a mixed 11 – 18 wide ability school with Academy status with 2100 students including 350 in the Sixth Form. We are part of Tenterden Schools’ Trust working in collaboration with local primary schools serving the Wealden town of Tenterden and the surrounding villages. The school is situated on the edge of Tenterden and enjoys a large semi-rural site overlooking open countryside.

Homewood has excellent facilities for all its students and our specialisms in Performing Arts, Applied Learning and the Rural Dimension underpin our approaches to learning which are designed to raise achievement across the whole student body. We aim to maintain and develop the cultural aspirations of the school community in line with our priorities of “belonging” and “respect” and offer a broad range of curriculum opportunities in all subject areas. This also extends into the local community through partnerships across primary, secondary and higher education sectors as well as non-educational community partners.

Homewood provides a secure and caring learning environment in which all students can flourish and succeed. It is a school renowned for its support for students’ wellbeing. Heads of College provide academic and pastoral leadership for the students in their College, supported by dedicated form tutors, a Family Liaison Officer and Assistant Head of College. A range of other staff including counsellors and a qualified nurse help and support the students through their time at Homewood. Consideration and respect for each other is central to our work and we are justly proud of our students’ achievements.

I hope you will be inspired to submit an application to join us. If you are successful, you can be assured of a very warm welcome and a real opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the young people of this part of Kent.
