Every member of staff is a vital part of our committed and ambitious team and we have been very successful at developing teachers and leaders with progression both within, and beyond the academy. 

Our “Curriculum Drivers” run through all that we do as we encourage students to be safe, happy, the best they can be, and be proud.

Mastery: delivering excellent teaching & learning and developing excellent learners. Students are ambitious and committed.

Character: developing students into well rounded young people who we can be confident in to “do the right thing when no-one is looking”.

Perspective: how our students fit into the world around them, how they appropriately challenge wrongs, and promote what is right. Students are open minded, compassionate and recognise the differences found in all of us.

This is an exciting time to join our IT department as we look to embed our KS3 curriculum as well as our KS4 courses. We have a digital literacy programme that runs across KS3 and as a google school, students make progress through their google passports to become proficient across a range of programmes. We also cover an introduction to computing. IT is well supported in the academy, and is taught throughout KS3.  At KS4 we follow the BTEC Tech Award in Digital Information Technology, with the opportunity to enhance the range of subjects delivered at KS4/5.

Our specialist classrooms are equipped with ViewSonic boards and we have suites of chrome books available for student use.  The IT department works alongside the Business department, and as such is well supported and resourced. There is an opportunity to develop an extra-curriculum programme to foster the love of IT in all its  formats.

We are looking for a Teacher of IT to join us. We welcome applications from ECTs but equally from experienced candidates looking for middle leadership as a TLR is available for the right candidate. For us it’s more important to have te right person who shares our values. If you are driven, and passionate about IT, then we want to hear from you!
