Bohunt Horsham, part of Bohunt Education Trust (BET), is looking to appoint a highly motivated, dynamic and innovative individual with an excellent track record in departmental development and leadership to help shape and ensure the success of our purpose-built, all-through, coeducational school in Horsham. The school will open in temporary accommodation in September 2019 with 120 students in year 7 and will grow to a roll of 1620 students, aged 4-16. We intend for Bohunt Horsham to be a true all-through school with opportunities for cross phase teaching and the sharing of pedagogical practice and research across primary and secondary provision, offering our students opportunities for leadership and mentoring.  

Our Head of Faculty will have overall responsibility for maths, science, technology and computing.  As we will be a new and growing school this is an exciting opportunity for an outstanding teacher who aspires to whole school leadership or is looking for their first departmental leadership role.  Potential is as important as experience.  The faculty will initially have up to five staff members and teachers of any of the subject areas within the faculty are invited to apply. This role will be supported by experienced cross trust leadership: subject directors and coordinators across BET.

The successful candidate will need to demonstrate success in sustaining academic excellence, helping every child achieve exceptional outcomes and using data to inform actions. Achievement within BET is not just about innovative teaching and learning and academic success but also about providing our students with a breadth and depth of experience, as such we are looking for a team member who is passionate about providing young people with opportunities to develop and thrive. 

At BET, we nurture and support your professional ambitions by providing opportunities for training, development and progression, whatever stage you’ve reached in your career. BET’s approach to teaching and learning is innovative and immersive – a rich blend of the latest education thinking, technology and practice both in and outside the classroom. We set the highest expectations for ourselves and our students, and this is reflected in our results and Ofsted progress. Across all our schools, we have introduced a range of game-changing teaching methods, including language immersion in Mandarin, cross-cultural projects with Sweden, China and Germany, and an integrated science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) curriculum developed in partnership with business and industry. Bohunt Horsham will be the first all-through school in the trust and will provide additional opportunities for professional development with the opportunity to work across educational phases.  

Potential candidates may make informal enquiries to: Ms Georgette Ayling: Headteacher, by e-mailing on gayling@bohunthorsham.com
