The Governors wish to appoint an excellent classroom practitioner to join our outstanding Creative Arts and Technology faculty. The successful applicant will be joining a large team of subject specialists, with the opportunity to work and develop professionally alongside teachers of Computing, Art and the suite of Technology subjects. This post is suitable for a well-qualified, enthusiastic and passionate teacher of Food Technology who will also be expected to teach effectively across the faculty.
The already-impressive Food Technology suite will undergo a further programme of refurbishment and capital investment this summer, which means that the successful candidate will have enviable, up-to-date resources at their disposal. Until recently, Food Technology was a high-profile subject in school and has been an extremely popular option choice at GCSE. We are now looking for someone with the passion and vision to restore this subject’s popularity and take it to new heights. The successful applicant will also be responsible for creating and delivering an exciting and inclusive co-curricular programme, inspiring students through educational visits, clubs and making strong links with employers.
Penwortham Girls’ High School is a popular, oversubscribed school, graded as outstanding in every category in its last Ofsted inspection. Ofsted recognised the “culture geared towards success and excellence in achievement throughout the school.” The inspectors commented on the “consistently high quality of teaching” whilst noting that “staff are as concerned for students’ personal well-being as they are about their academic success.”
Please note that the school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This post is subject to an enhanced DBS disclosure.
