The Governors of NGHS wish to appoint a Teacher of Computing from September 2019. This is a permanent post, either full or part time and on MPS or UPS pay scales. Experience delivering Computing in KS3 and at GCSE is essential and we are very keen to appoint a colleague with A-level expertise. The successful applicant will join a supportive faculty, led by the Head of Maths. S/he will be the main teacher of Computing in the school and therefore will have the benefit of considerable autonomy with regard to curriculum content and examination board choice, whilst also the responsibility of teaching a number of examination groups and the full range of year groups from Year 7 to Sixth Form. There is no teaching expected outside of specialism.
NGHS has recently been ranked #1 in both Telford & Wrekin and Shropshire for public examination results and a lot is achieved both in and outside the classroom. Our colleagues work very hard to support students to achieve their best and professional and personal support is offered to all. Staff wellbeing is valued and all staff benefit from free tea/coffee/milk, flu jabs, a new colleague buddy system, social events and an understanding approach to attendance at family and child events such as nativities, sports days and personal emergencies. There is free car parking on site and plenty of opportunities to travel the world with students visiting Russia, India, Bosnia, France, Belgium and Germany this year alone.
Finally, we must comment on our students. They are a delight to teach and support. They are focused, attentive in lessons and keen to do their best. NGHS is a school where you can teach without the need to control unruly behaviour and whilst the students have very high expectations of their teachers, there is a genuine desire to please and to work with staff to achieve the best outcomes. We look forward to receiving your application.
