Isaac Newton Academy is a non-denominational, non-selective school, welcoming students of all backgrounds from the local community. We opened in 2012 with our inaugural cohort of 180 year 7 students. Isaac Newton Academy is an all through school with students from Reception to Year 13. Our mission is to equip every student with the knowledge, learning power and character necessary for success at university and beyond, and to pursue their passions and interests.
The school was founded on the belief that all pupils can make dramatic progress within the right environment. Students, teachers, staff and parents are committed to making Isaac Newton a vibrant and inclusive learning community in which everyone can succeed.
We offer a rich curriculum emphasising core academic subjects, whilst providing the facilities, time and specialist staff to ensure students develop across a range of subjects. Music is at the heart of our school, with every student learning an instrument and all secondary students having the chance to be part of our Big Band ensembles.
Our school won Secondary School of the Year in the 2018 Shine a Light Awards for its commitment to developing pupils’ communication skills and was shortlisted for Secondary School of the Year in the 2018 TES Awards.
We are seeking an inspirational Head of Computing to lead this popular and important subject across KS3-5. Computing was introduced as a discrete subject in secondary in 2016/17, and at KS5 in September 2020. As well as responsibility for the improvement and delivery of Computing at KS3, 4 and 5, you will have responsibility for raising the profile of Computing across the Academy. This is an exciting opportunity to shape and grow this subject area.
Computing is an incredibly popular subject at KS4 where demand has far outstripped the number of classes we have been able to offer. In addition to our formal curriculum, computing enrichments remain popular, including coding club and robotics.
The successful candidate will:
• be an outstanding teacher with a proven track record of securing excellent outcomes
• have up-to-date knowledge of subject curricula and assessment requirements
