We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic and committed teacher of A Level Psychology to join EPCS in September 2018. Our school currently has a close-knit sixth form of 120 students across Years 12 and 13. We pride ourselves on providing a highly personalised sixth form experience and outstanding support and guidance. Social Sciences have enjoyed significant success at our school in recent years, and Psychology is one of our most popular courses. You would be working as part of a small team, alongside an experienced Social Sciences teacher who has recently overseen the successful introduction of A Level Criminology. 

The successful candidate will either:

  1. Alongside teaching A Level Psychology, be willing to teach A Level Sociology and Criminology (and as a result have an exclusively KS5 timetable).
  2. Alongside teaching A Level Psychology, be willing to teach another subject such as Maths or Science in the main school.
  3. Offer A Level Psychology only and be part time (0.5).

At Easthampstead Park Community School, we are dedicated to having high expectations, tight discipline and providing students with exciting and varied curriculum. We believe a healthy three-way partnership between parent, teacher and student is essential to effective learning, 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. Our whole school expectation that students and teachers alike never stop learning means that staff quickly develop their practice and progress in their career. We expect hard work, skill and dedication to our ethos, and in return we provide an excellent working environment, first class professional development and an excellent benefits package. We want you to look forward to each day working at our school. 

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 our students deserve nothing but the best possible teaching and support 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.

Online applications can be completed via the Bracknell Forest Council link from the school website http://www.epschool.org/content/vacancies.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff to share this commitment. An enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check will be undertaken.
