Thank you for your interest in the post of Head of Design and Technology at Bishop Luffa School. Required from September 2019, this position is open to a Technology teacher with any specialism, but willing to work across the Faculty.
The Design and Technology Faculty is a lively, experienced and supportive team, comprising Graphics, Resistant Materials, Textiles, and Food Preparation and Nutrition. An experienced teacher will have the opportunity to develop and fine-tune their practice across all Key Stages and a wide range of academic ability.
The successful applicant will be able to share and enthuse our young people with a love of design and technology, food, and textiles, and support them to be creative, reflective and resilient learners. He or she will be passionate and committed, and keen to inspire students to learn skills and explore their own talents, and to share our aspiration to help realise the school’s vision, Always our best because everyone matters.
I have recently joined Bishop Luffa School and so can say with some credibility that the school is a lovely place to work. Our students are proud of their school and take part in an incredible number of extra-curricular activities , such as House Drama, The Sixth Form Fashion Show and Charity Week. We have recently run trips to Tanzania and Russia and have visits to Rome and Beijing planned for next year.
Bishop Luffa School is a fully comprehensive 11-18 Church School. I hope that we live our Christian values, which all of our staff and students share, regardless of their beliefs.
I would encourage you to come and view the school and looking forward to meeting you.
Mr Austen Hindman, Head Teacher
