About Richard Taunton Sixth Form College
Richard Taunton’s is a vibrant Sixth Form College in the West of Southampton. Our core business is to provide full time education to 16-19 year olds (currently around 1200) but we also offer part-time adult education courses and provide facilities for a wide range of other community-based activities (including the Open University) in the evenings and at weekends. The College is firmly rooted in its community and it is our vision to be the sixth form of choice for all our community, an outstanding, high achieving college which inspires and challenges young people to be the best that they can be.
Our recent full Ofsted inspection (report published October 2013) awarded Good grades across the board, endorsing the progress being made at the college and our common commitment to promoting the very highest standards – setting high expectations for all our students and supporting them very effectively. Above all, it was the high quality of teaching, learning and assessment which impressed the experienced team who carried out the inspection.
If you are a good teacher with a passion for your subject, a commitment to lifelong learning and a desire to make a difference to young people of all abilities and backgrounds, you will thrive here. We welcome applications from teachers who are currently working in 11-16 schools as well as those from 11-18 schools, other post -16 colleges and newly qualified teachers.
