We are seeking to appoint an inspirational Faculty Leader who enjoys working with young people and has a genuine excitement for excellence in learning and the teaching of Business Studies and Economics.  We are looking for someone who will have a positive impact both within their Faculty and at a whole-school level by working with other colleagues to raise standards of Attainment and Achievement, and Learning and Teaching.
