With a recently completed £27 million development and state-of-the-art facilities, we were the first sixth form college to be awarded Teaching School status. Here in our forward-thinking Business Studies and IT department, we believe that by striving to achieve more, staff and students alike can be the best they can be. With a strong track record of building links with local employers, we are keen to continue this by working closely with partner schools and universities.

We are proud that we have been rated Outstanding by Ofsted. That’s largely down to the dedication of our high-performing teaching team. Focused on the particular needs of 16 to 19 year old students through a range of courses (mainly A Levels and BTECs), their aim is to educate the whole person within a close and caring community.

With a relevant degree and teaching qualification, you should bring first-rate communication and organisational skills. You must also be committed to ensuring that every student looks forward to their lessons – and gets the very most out of their time with us. 

So what about your ambitions? We’ll make sure you enjoy all the professional development you need to achieve them and you will get great support from our team.

This role, commencing in August 2018, offers you the opportunity to work in a truly comprehensive sixth form college which continuously strives to work at the cutting edge of teaching and learning.  Integration of collaborative, and assessment for, learning is fundamental to this. The post is fixed term for the academic year 2018/19 and is 0.65fte over 4 days with the potential of additional hours becoming available.

In return, you’ll enjoy all the professional development you need to achieve your ambitions. We offer excellent Terms and Conditions including 195 working days per year and access to the Teachers' Pension Scheme.
