We have an exciting opportunity to teach KS3, GCSE and A Level D&T at one of the most successful schools in England. There are also potential TLR opportunities including deputy head of sixth form for a suitably experienced and qualified colleague. The role is suitable for NQTs.
We seek an enthusiastic graduate. High energy levels and good inter-personal skills will be essential. The Technology Department at Gordon’s places creativity, student autonomy and authentic design principles at its heart.
Set in a beautiful 45-acre Surrey site, the school enjoys excellent facilities and an aspirational learning environment. Recognised by HM Chief Inspector of Schools as one of England’s finest non-selective schools, Gordon’s has circa 840 students including 240 residential boarders and a thriving sixth form.
In 2018, the percentage of students achieving five or more GCSE grades A* to C, including English and mathematics, was over 90%. The A*-C pass rate at A-Level was 95%, with 76% of the grades A* to B. These results rank Gordon's amongst the top non-selective schools in England for progress and attainment.
Massively over-subscribed, Gordon’s size ensures that every pupil is well known and nurtured as an individual. The School has a very strong emphasis on academic standards, self-discipline and traditional values and aims to be much more than just outstanding examination results, providing abundant opportunities outside the classroom and exceptional pastoral care.
