This is a great opportunity to join a highly successful school as part of a friendly and very hard working department. Established as a brand new school in 2002, we moved into our award-winning £30 million accommodation in 2005. The school is located within easy reach of central London via the District Line and yet just minutes by car from the Essex countryside.

In May 2013, Ofsted described the school as good with outstanding leadership and governance. They stated that JRCS offers “an exceptionally caring and challenging education to enable all its students to ‘ACHIEVE’.” The report also stated that the promotion of students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is outstanding and takes into account students’ equality of opportunity. OFSTED also said that “teaching in the sixth form is consistently good or better”. The school is highly over-subscribed with well over 1100 expressions of preference for the 300 spaces available in Year 7 for next year. This summer we achieved our KS4 results and over 57% of our Year 11 students achieved A*-C grades including English and Maths. The results achieved by academic and vocational Sixth Form students remained significantly above national averages.

The Design & Technology Department is part of a faculty, which has in its own wing, with purpose built facilities for teaching each of the specialisms offered. At Key stage three (Yr7-9), all students follow an in-depth curriculum and assessment plan focusing mainly on resistant materials. At Key stage 4 (Yr10-11), we currently offer GCSE Product Design (OCR), BTEC Engineering and BTEC Construction as options for those students wishing to continue with design technology. 

We are looking to appoint an innovative technician with workshop experience (Industry or Academic) who can maintain fully functioning workshops, prepare resistant materials resources for the department and support GCSE KS4 specialisms lessons within the department. 

We pride ourselves in being a truly inclusive school that actively promotes ‘Success for All’. We hold the highest academic standards and offer our students a wide range of opportunities to pursue their studies both inside and outside the classroom. Our extensive range of extra-curricular activities and trips is second to none and ensures all students get the chance to extend their academic, social and culture experiences outside of the classroom.

All applications should be made online  by clicking the @Apply Now' link. Please contact Margaret Stone on recruitment@jorichardson.org.uk if you wish to arrange a visit to the school.

JRCS is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be required to apply for an enhanced DBS disclosure.
