The Costello School is looking to appoint highly motivated, dynamic and innovative individuals with a desire to improve the life chances of young people through excellent care, teaching and guidance. The maths posts arise due to current staff moving away from the area. There is the possibility of a leadership element to the job due to the school’s desire to innovate with pedagogy and curriculum in order to create a unique, innovative and rich educational climate underpinned by co-planning and collaboration between professionals. You may be about to gain your teaching qualification and looking for your first role or seeking further experience in another school. No matter what stage of your career you are at you should have the potential to be an outstanding classroom practitioner (if you aren’t already) with a passion for taking risks, trying new things and reflecting on your own practice in order to improve. Does this sound like you? We invest heavily in CPD/ training and have fantastic links with other schools and professional organisations, which has led to our induction programme receiving the highest rating from Hampshire. New ideas and approaches are welcomed with open arms and coaching is used to unlock potential. We work very closely with our ‘family’ of partner schools and are currently the strategic lead for a unique teaching and learning project. Due to strong links with local post 16 providers there may be opportunities to experience KS5 teaching. Furthermore, the school’s Governing Body has just voted to explore in detail joining Bohunt Education Trust, which means that opportunities for support, development and progression could well be further strengthened in the near future.
Candidates are also welcome to visit us to discuss the role and gain a sense of our educational ethos and culture.
The Costello School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. The successful candidate will be subject to an enhanced DBS check and other relevant pre-employment checks.
