Business Studies Teacher

The Role

Are you our new Business Studies Teacher (GCSE and A Level)?  This is a temporary post available from 1 September 2021. As it is to cover a sabbatical, it will end on 31 August 2022.

The ability to teach Economics to A Level or Computer Science to any of the key stages may be an advantage, and you would need to be able to offer the ability to teach these or another subject in addition to Business Studies for it to be a full time role. We will consider applications from those wanting to work only part time if you make this clear in your application.

The School

We are a successful and heavily oversubscribed 11-18 co-educational, Church of England, comprehensive school of over 1700 students, serving families from the whole of greater Bristol and beyond. We are located at the heart of the city and have a diverse student community with considerable parental support. Our diversity is a strength and something we celebrate. The Redcliffe Sixth Form Centre currently houses more than 600 students taken from our own school and from many other schools across the City.

The School is proud of its academic record, and in 2020 86.7% of GCSE grades were at grade 4 or above.  88.2% of students achieved 5 or more grade 4s or above.  44.1% of students achieved 3 or more grade 7s or above.  Sixth form results are high with a 99.7% pass rate and 88.6% at grade C or above. 64% of grades were at grade B or above 34.5% at grade A or above.  Most sixth form students continue on to Higher Education, including 10 awarded Oxbridge places, and 1 going to a university in America.

Inspection Reports

The School was judged in January 2012 and again in April 2015 to be outstanding by Ofsted, and outstanding in our church school (SIAMS) inspection, in each and every category. Ofsted judged Leadership and Management, Behaviour and Safety of Pupils, Quality of Teaching, Achievement of Pupils, and Sixth Form Provision, all as Outstanding.

The Department

Business Studies is a popular and successful subject at both GCSE and A Level. At GCSE we generally have two Business Studies groups in each of Year 10 and Year 11. At A Level, we offer both Business Studies and Economics.

What We're Looking For

We seek to appoint a talented teacher able to teach the subject at both GCSE and A Level as part of a team.

The ability to teach Economics to KS5 or Computer Science to KS3 and KS4 may be an advantage. You must be able to offer one of these subjects, or another subject for which we have a need, for it to be a full time post.
