The Cherwell School is a high performing and oversubscribed comprehensive school in Oxford (1990 students on roll, including 620 in the Sixth Form).  We achieved GCSE progress results in the top 5% of all schools in 2017.  We are pleased that we hold an ‘Outstanding’ rating by Ofsted as we feel this is a fair reflection of the school, not least as we recognise that we have the capacity to develop and improve further. We consider ourselves to be a school which has at its heart “opportunity, responsibility, excellence” and we aim to make this a deeper reality for all of our students and staff in the years to come.  Our aims are supported by our designation as a National Teaching School and as a School Centered Initial Teacher Training provider. We are committed to the professional learning and career development of our staff and work in conjunction with the River Learning Trust to raise standards. 

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and hardworking colleague who will divide their time between supervising lessons during periods of staff absence, providing other support for subject departments and providing extra-curricular opportunities for students (dependent on the interests of the appointed candidate). They will have the ability to contribute to a team and a genuine liking for working with people of all ages. Experience (or an interest) in PE would be an advantage, but not essential. This is an excellent opportunity; especially for candidates considering a teaching career, as many of our previous cover supervisors have gone on to complete their teacher training. Should you wish to be part of our future we welcome your application.
