This vacancy has arisen due to the promotion of the current post holder to a head of department role in another school. We are seeking to appoint a full time teacher of Computing to join our successful and expanding Computing Department. The successful candidate will have the skills, expertise and passion to; help develop the curriculum, and enthuse our students to achieve across KS3, 4 and 5. 

The post would suit an experienced teacher seeking a new challenge  or an NQT who would benefit from a well established programme of induction year support.  

Department overview

The department is a popular choice for students at both Key Stage 4 and 5, with numbers increasing in both courses. We currently offer GCSE Computing (OCR) and A level Computer Science (OCR). 


The GCSE results are very good and compare favourably with national averages with 64% of students achieving 9-4. The A level Computer Science course is relatively new and we have had our first cohort through. This is an area we are developing with increased numbers opting for the subject.

Extra curricular

The department provides numerous opportunities for pupils to stretch their understanding of the subjects away from lessons. These include visits to the National Computing Museum at Bletchley Park and both lunchtime and after school clubs.

Support for pupils

All members of the department are involved in providing additional support to pupils during lunchtimes and after school. This support covers a range of areas including Controlled Assessment, UCAS applications and specific gaps in subject knowledge. We feel this support makes a significant difference to pupils chances of success.

The school is situated in Redhill, a commuter belt town in the Surrey Fringe area.  We are close to the M25 and there are good transport links to London and the South Coast from Redhill station which is about 15 minutes walk from the school.  We also benefit from being within walking distance of beautiful countryside . Many staff live locally, others commute from Guildford, South London, Kent and East & West Sussex.
