We are seeking to appoint a dynamic, ambitious individual who will promote and contribute to the continued development of our sixth form provision. We have approximately 250 students in the sixth form, who are overseen by the Head of Sixth Form, supported by the Deputy Head of Sixth Form and a Pastoral Support Team. We are extremely proud of recent recognition from Ofsted who graded the sixth form ‘outstanding’ in May 2019; this truly is an excellent opportunity for a first-rate practitioner to lead the sixth form to further success.
Teaching commitment (no preference for subject offered) is likely to be around 0.5 FTE.
Our desire to be one of the very top non-selective, comprehensive sixth forms nationally continues with great enthusiasm and this appointment is a key factor in ensuring that we achieve that ambition. We hope our application pack will give you a better understanding of The Burgate School and Sixth Form and encourage you to apply.
We firmly believe that visiting a school is key to deciding whether you should apply for a new role, so please do contact Sarah Hewett, Headteacher's PA, on 01425 652039 or via firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to make an appointment to look round.
Interviews for this position will be held on Wednesday 6 and Thursday 7 October 2021.
You are advised to submit your application as soon as possible because we reserve the right to close a vacancy earlier than the advertised date if we have received sufficient applications that meet the given criteria.
