We encourage you to read our website very carefully and familiarise yourself with our 2014 Ofsted report, our prospectus, candidate information pack and application form for the post. What will be clear to you is that you are applying to an extremely successful school and one with a decidedly clear ethos of achievement. We moved, in November 2012, into a brand new £80 million school. The school became an Academy in September 2013 and was recognised by the Department for Education as a Teaching School in 2015. In 2017, the school’s results profile placed it in the top 5% of schools nationally for the sixth consecutive year. The school is committed to developing its teachers and to fostering the development of outstanding teaching. The school is a personalised community which is committed to creating careers for people. It is experienced in supporting NQTs and indeed enjoys this aspect of staff development but it has had equal success in fostering the careers of colleagues who join having taught in other schools or have had other careers.
We are seeking an experienced and inspirational Director of IT to lead and manage the provision of technology in the school. The successful applicant will join and manage an experienced network manager and support an apprentice. The successful candidate will secure the highest standards of provision for young people and adults. We operate on an expectation of zero unplanned downtime and have achieved this standard since moving into our new building some 5 years ago.
The school’s network is based on a virtualized VMWare, vSphere and Cisco infrastructure. The virtual machines are balanced by three host servers connected to an HP Storage Attached Network and run Windows and Linux Servers. All classrooms are equipped with Promethean interactive white boards and Dell/Apple computers.
An application form that should be completed electronically is available from the school’s website: http://www.hollandparkschool.co.uk/vacancies/train-and-teach-with-us. Early application is encouraged as we will seek to interview and appoint on receipt. The closing date for applications is Monday 30th April 2018 by 09:00.
