Bohunt HorshamWest Sussex

Bohunt Horsham, part of Bohunt Education Trust (BET), is looking to appoint a highly motivated, dynamic and innovative individual with an excellent record of accomplishment in departmental development and leadership to help shape and ensure the success of our purpose-built, all-through, coeducational school in Horsham. The school opened in temporary accommodation in September 2019 with 120 students in Year 7 and we now have 240 students in Years 7 and 8.  The school will grow to a roll of 1620 students, aged 4-16. We intend Bohunt Horsham to be a true all-through school with opportunities for cross phase teaching and the sharing of pedagogical practice and research across primary and secondary provision, offering our students opportunities for leadership and mentoring.

Our Head of Faculty will have overall responsibility for Maths, Science, Technology, Food Technology and Computing. Teachers of any of the STEM subject areas are invited to apply. We are a new and growing school and this is an exciting opportunity for an outstanding teacher who may aspire to whole school leadership or is looking for their first faculty leadership role. Potential is as important as experience. The faculty will initially consist of six members of staff; the successful candidate will join a thriving, dedicated and passionate team. This role will be supported by the senior leadership team and will benefit from experienced cross trust leadership.

The successful candidate will need to demonstrate success in sustaining academic excellence, helping every child achieve exceptional progress and using data to inform actions. Achievement within BET is not just about innovative teaching and learning and academic success but also about providing our students with a breadth and depth of experience, as such we are looking for a team member who is passionate about providing young people with opportunities to develop and thrive.

At BET, we nurture and support your professional ambitions by providing opportunities for training, development and progression, whatever stage you have reached in your career. BET’s approach to teaching and learning is innovative and immersive – a rich blend of the latest education thinking, technology and practice both in and outside the classroom. We set the highest expectations for ourselves and our students, and this is reflected in our results and Ofsted progress.
