We are looking to appoint a dynamic and creative Head of Design Technology - Food, to join our school in September 2018. The successful candidate will be responsible for leading a small, closely knit team of practitioners with a focus on delivering quality first teaching across Key Stages 3 and 4. In the future, there could be potential for developing food technology at A Level. We are looking for an outstanding teacher, dedicated to sharing their passion for food technology with students. The successful candidate will also be a strategic thinker, capable of supporting and motivating others. Applications from both experienced and aspiring new middle leaders are welcomed.

Easthampstead Park Community School is a vibrant, cutting edgelearning environment. Our school culture marries unswervingly high academic expectations with excellent pastoral care and support. The concept of community is at the very heart of our vision; we believe in a three-way partnership between parents, teachers and students, and are proud of our setting and local community. Teaching and learning is at the very heart of our school, and drives everything we do. An action-research based approach to teaching and learning has been central to our improvement journey in recent years, and we whole-heartedly believe in investing in staff’s continued professional development in the same way that we expect our teachers to passionately invest in our students.

This is a very exciting time to join us. In recent years, we have made excellent progress, and at our last OFSTED inspection (June 2016), we were rated as ‘good’ in all areas. 

“Since her appointment, the Headteacher has focused on making sure that all pupils feel safe, happy and confident so that they learn well. This did not happen overnight but it is now apparent in pupils’ much improved behaviour and their positive response to the good teaching they receive.” 

We aspire to be rated ‘outstanding’, driven by a core belief that all of our students deserve nothing but the best possible teaching and support in order to be happy, healthy and successful. We aim to deliver the best quality teaching and learning in a school where staff and students have respect for, and pride in themselves, their school and their community.

If you feel you have the necessary skills, mind-set and determination to join us on our journey towards ‘outstanding’, we would very much like to hear from you. Visits to the school are warmly welcomed.
