Are you up for the challenge of working in one of the top performing schools nationally for progress? If so, we want you!
We are looking to appoint a highly motivated, enthusiastic and committed individual to join our DT team and support them in delivering high quality learning for our students. This is a great opportunity for someone with the right skills to join the school and team at an exciting time.
A stone’s throw from the heart of the UK’s City of Culture for 2017, overlooking one of the 20th Century’s most impressive construction projects and located at the heart of the burgeoning UK centre for renewables, Baysgarth School is now in the most exciting phase of its history. In November 2016 we moved into our brand new state-of-the-art campus, which comprises Baysgarth School, the Humber Skills Centre and Baysgarth Sports Village. The school has risen quickly to become one of the top performing schools in the region, consistently producing good outcomes for our students. Our Year 7 cohort is full for new intake students and will be full for every year group from now on, which reflects the first class facilities we have on site as well as our fantastic students and staff who make the school a great place to learn.
Ofsted visited Baysgarth in October 2017 and concluded that we are a Good school which ‘has gone from strength to strength’ and is making ‘good progress on the journey to outstanding’. In terms of student achievement, Ofsted reported that ‘Overall progress was in the top 10% nationally … [and] current pupils are making strong progress in all year groups.’ The DfE have concluded that ‘there is no better performing similar school within 75 miles of Baysgarth’ and it is our mission to recruit the most talented staff to continue this progress.
The Head Teacher has many years’ experience of transforming outcomes in a number of secondary schools and at the heart of his vision is creating and developing close-knit teams, focused on collaboration, mutual support and risk-taking. The successful candidate will need to demonstrate their commitment to the core principles and values of ambition, fairness, consistency, rigour and putting students first.
The successful candidate will be responsible for:
• preparing and maintaining apparatus, resources and materials;
• setting up classrooms / workrooms with equipment (including IT);
• providing some administrative support, when required.
The following qualifications and experience are essential:
• GCSE Maths (or equivalent) Grade C or above
• GCSE English (or equivalent) Grade C or above
Baysgarth School is currently an 11-16 comprehensive with approximately 800 pupils on roll. The successful candidate will be expected to have pride, passion, positivity and vision and a desire to ensure the school has the highest possible reputation in the local community and beyond.
Baysgarth School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be required to apply for enhanced disclosure from the DBS.
If you are inspired by the challenge and responsibility of this opportunity we would like to hear from you. Further details and an application form can be downloaded from our school website. If you would like to discuss any aspect of the post, please feel free to contact Ben Wilson, Head of DT, at the school.
