You are a dynamic teacher and leader with an enthusiasm for Computer Science which you impart to staff and students alike. What’s more, you are committed to delivering an exceptional learning experience for every one of your pupils. So join the friendly and welcoming team here at Woldingham School – and enjoy all the support you need to achieve your professional goals. 

Our girls’ interest in this key subject speaks for itself and each year they go on to study a wide range of STEM subjects in Higher Education. We provide an outstanding range of facilities including two well-equipped dedicated computer suites and access to an impressive array of additional resources, including digital cameras, video recording facilities and a state-of-the-art music technology centre.

The ability to teach Computer Science across all Key Stages and up to A Level is essential, combined with first-rate organisational, team working and ICT skills. From September 2018, we will offer A Level Computer Science alongside our already established GCSE and KS3 courses, something that you will play a large part in developing.
