As a result of the increasing popularity in the courses we are looking to recruit a dynamic and enthusiastic Business Studies and Economics teacher to start in September 2020. 

Business Studies is a successful and thriving department within the humanities faculty. It benefits from its own suite of rooms which are fully equipped with PCs. We currently run two A Level groups in both year 12 and 13, six option classes for GCSE in year 10 and five in year 11. In addition there are opportunities for sixth form students to gain qualifications for IFS courses.

Applications from NQTs or experienced teachers are welcome. We would also consider applications for a part time post.

The application form and job description can be found below. Applications should be emailed to Mrs Eva Hobson

The successful candidates will be required to undertake a Disclosure and Barring check.

All offers of employment are “conditional” until Disclosure and Barring and qualification checks have been successfully completed and satisfactory references have been received. Redborne is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

Closing Date: Sunday 29th March 2020

From September 2020 successful candidates may be eligible for brand new, subsidized, fully- furnished accommodation in Ampthill, sponsored by the Connolly Foundation. More details will be available following your appointment to the post. Details of the scheme can be found on the RTSA website.

Redborne is a successful school on a spacious and pleasant campus near the market town of Ampthill in Bedfordshire. We achieve excellent examination results with about three-quarters of students typically gaining Maths and English at grades 9 – 4. A Level results are also very good with over half at A*, A or B grades and an overall pass rate of 99.9%. About 80% of the Sixth Form go on to university and each year a number of students get into Oxbridge. The school is well regarded, oversubscribed and situated in a very pleasant area of Central Bedfordshire, within easy reach of London. The campus includes a state-of-the-art 400 seat theatre and we have opened a new classroom block and Sixth Form social area. In the next few years the school is likely to expand to 1,700 with 500+ in the sixth form. Redborne is also a National College Support School, a Leading Edge School and has Teaching School Status.
