A fantastic opportunity is awaiting you; the chance to design and shape innovative and creative pedagogical practice in a brand new all-through academy. 

Having appointed exceptional candidates thus far, King’s Academy Binfield (KAB) and King’s Academy Oakwood (KAO) are now looking to appoint a highly motivated, dynamic and innovative teacher of Design Technology to play an intrinsic role in our new all-through academy in Bracknell Forest. Particular subject specialisms within Product Design; Resistant Materials, Food and Nutrition, and/or Engineering would be desirable. The department is a well-resourced and purpose built facility consisting of a suite of workshops, food preparation rooms and graphic design facilities. 

The academy opened in a superb new building in September 2018 with 120 fabulous Year 7 students, and will grow year on year to a roll of over 1800 students, aged 3-18. The primary phase both at KAB and King’s Academy Oakwood (KAO) both opened in September 2019, when we also welcomed our new year 7 cohort of 150. 

Whilst a main scale role initially, there will be increasing opportunities for leadership roles within the academy as the school expands. Potential is as important as experience.  

Applicants should be excellent classroom teachers and have the ability to motivate, inspire and lead students to excel.  The successful candidate will be a team player and will get stuck in and involve themselves in the wider aspects of academy life. A genuine commitment to our ‘whatever it takes’ ethos is essential to enable every young person at KAB and KAO to thrive.

KAB and KAO are part of the King’s Group Academies MAT, led by a team of former and current Ofsted ‘outstanding’ head teachers and Her Majesty’s Inspectors (HMI). Please note link to King’s Group Academies Vision and Mission - https://kingsacademies.uk/about-us/vision-and-mission/ 

King’s Education separately operates British schools abroad, educating over 4,000 students in countries such as Spain, Latvia and Panama, offering exciting opportunities for genuine international collaboration.

King’s Academy Binfield and King’s Academy Oakwood are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young students and expects all staff to share this commitment. The successful applicant will need to undertake an Enhanced DBS check.
