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. Rated outstanding by Ofsted in 2 categories in May 2019.

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. 

This is a rare and exciting challenge for an ambitious and imaginative candidate to join us as we move into our new buildings. Beginning with year 7 there has been the freedom to design and evolve the curriculum without the restraints of what is already there and the opportunity to create a unique, innovative and rich educational climate, supported by the infrastructure of a hugely successful Trust. This has been particularly true in the STEM faculty, in which D&T is an active component and where we lead development of the STEM curriculum for the Trust.

As well as being a specialist Design & Technology teacher, you will need to demonstrate a commitment to a STEM philosophy, teaching the range of DT specialisms across Key stage 3 using problem solving approaches that relate to the nature of the real world of work. Students then specialise in DT at KS4. Candidates will need to show 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. 

Interviews will be organised by arrangement with applicants on application therefore potential candidates are advised to apply as early as possible or make informal enquiries for more information to: Mrs Nina Kyprianidis, Assistant Head, Bohunt School Wokingham, by e-mailing on nkyprianidis@bohuntwokingham.com. 

Closing date: 28th February

Bohunt School Wokingham is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young students and expects all staff to share this commitment. The successful applicant will need to undertake an Enhanced DBS check.
