About the Education Service
St Sampsons High School currently operates as part of the Guernsey Federation of Secondary Schools which includes La Mare De Carteret, Les Beaucamps and Guernsey Grammar School and Sixth Form, alongside St Anne’s School in Alderney. Secondary and Post-16 education is undergoing a period of exciting change on the Island, which includes a planned new structure with one 11-18 all ability school on two sites.
The drivers in Secondary phase education for this significant transformation are: equality of educational experience and outcomes, equality of opportunity and access, and efficient and effective use of resources.
The person appointed will be employed by the States of Guernsey and will be based at St Sampsons High School and will be required to maximise opportunities for collaborative working, teaching and learning across key stages and shared professional development across schools. There is an expectation that they will engage in cross-school initiatives which may require working on more than one site to meet the needs of the Education Service. The transition plans for the new structure may also mean you will work from an alternative site.
The post holder will be required to teach ICT throughout Key Stages 3&4.
The successful candidate will be able to excite and challenge learners to make rapid progress and will be able to demonstrate excellence in teaching and learning. They will be passionate about raising learners’ individual achievements and will have the opportunity to deliver an innovative broad and balanced Guernsey curriculum that aims to meet all learner needs through focus on the development of the whole child.
This is an excellent opportunity to work in a well-resourced department with a dedicated suite of ICT rooms.
