Wallingford School is an oversubscribed, successful 11-18 school with enthusiastic students, supportive staff and excellent facilities. We are among the most successful schools in the country for progress in English and Maths. In 2018 students achieved 75% 4+ in English and Maths at GCSE, with a Progress 8 score of +0.16. Our A Level students are consistently in the top 25% nationally for Value Added progress.
This is a very happy and supportive environment, with great relationships throughout the school. We place an especially high value on the development of colleagues and have an extensive professional development programme. There are many opportunities for teachers to work collaboratively across the school.
This is an exciting opportunity to lead a strong and dedicated Design Technology department that offers a range of courses for students at both KS4 and KS5. Last year’s results at GCSE were Food- 68%, Graphics – 53%, Resistant Materials – 66% and Textiles – 81%. There is often a large uptake with good results at KS5 (Product Design – ALPS 3, Textiles – ALPS 4).
