Would you like to be part of a new school?

Bohunt School Wokingham (BSW) is looking to appoint highly motivated, dynamic and innovative individuals with the desire to be part of a brand new school; to help shape, open and ensure the success of our new-build secondary school. The school opened in September 2016 with Year 7, growing to a roll of 1200 students, aged 11-16, by September 2020, with a final phase addition of a sixth form of up to 300 to follow. Designs and layouts of the new school buildings are accessible on the school website. 

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to be play an active part of the development and direction of the school as it grows, with rich opportunities for professional and career development both within the school and across the wider Academy Trust. Interest in the new school has been high and as a new and growing school, this represents a unique opportunity for a teacher who is looking to take full advantage of the opportunities available and develop themselves professionally.  Potential is as important as experience. 

It is a rare and exciting challenge for an ambitious and imaginative candidate to join us as we move into our 4th year. Beginning with year 7 we have had the freedom to design and evolve the curriculum without the restraints of what was already there and the opportunity to create a unique, innovative and rich educational climate, supported by the infrastructure of a hugely successful Trust. We have already been key players in the shaping of the Trust’s KS3 science curriculum and expect to develop this further under the leadership of the appointed candidate. The school was judged Good overall and outstanding in 2 categories at its inspection in May 2019.

You will need to demonstrate a commitment to sustaining academic excellence, helping every child succeed and the potential to be an excellent classroom practitioner.  As well as being able to; work as part of a team, roll up your sleeves and inspire others to excel.

The South of England based Bohunt Educational Trust has evolved from Bohunt School in Hampshire, which is rated Outstanding in every category by Ofsted and the Times Educational Supplement School of the Year 2014.   BET's educational philosophy is encapsulated by three short verbs: Enjoy, Respect and Achieve. 

Potential candidates are advised to apply as early as possible or make informal enquiries for more information to: Mr Ben Godber, Head of school, Bohunt School Wokingham, by e-mailing on
