Outer London Pay Scale
Woodcote High School has long been a top choice for parents in the Coulsdon & Purley area of South London. Located in a pleasant suburban setting on the borders of Surrey, Sutton and Croydon, the school has a rural feel but is officially in the Outer London salary band.
Rated “good” by Ofsted in 2015 in all areas; inspectors praised our students as “attentive, hardworking and practically always keen to learn. They get down to work fast and keep going diligently”.
GCSE results are way above average and A level results are improving rapidly. Teachers rate Woodcote as an enjoyable place to work due to the “fabulous students and supportive colleagues”.
This is a terrific opportunity, due to a colleague gaining promotion, for an innovative teacher to join our forward-looking and successful Business Department. Business Studies is popular, expanding subject at both KS4 and KS5, in particular Year 10, where we have over 70% of the cohort choosing to study the subject. The department is well resourced and committed to developing its vision whereby all students fulfil their potential at the highest level of achievement. In 2017 A2 Business achieved a 100% pass rate with the majority of students reaching their ALPS target.
