Weydon School is a large, ambitious and outstanding school in an unspoilt area of Surrey within easy reach of London. The Times has recently rated Weydon School 4th across the UK for 11-16 schools, and achievements in all subjects are exceptional.

Students are respectful and responsive, and are proud to uphold the strong values of the school. Colleagues and the leadership team are highly supportive, and all staff benefit from our extensive CPD programme organised in conjunction with our teaching school.

In recent years, the school has made a huge investment in new buildings and facilities. The Design Technology Suite has three purpose-built workshops, including a CAD room, a design classroom, a well-equipped textiles room and a fabulous newly-refurbished food room.

We are looking for a capable and motivated specialist in Food, who can provide professional leadership and management of the curriculum area and deliver GSCE Food and Nutrition. Food and Nutrition has proved to be a very successful and oversubscribed subject with mixed gender groups.
