Woodcote High School has long been a top choice for parents in the Coulsdon & Purley area of South London, with in excess of 1,000 applications annually for the 216 places available. Located in a pleasant suburban setting on the borders of Surrey, Sutton and Croydon, the school has a rural feel but is officially in the Outer London salary band.
Judged “good” by Ofsted in 2015 in all areas. Inspectors praised our students as “attentive, hardworking and practically always keen to learn. They get down to work fast and keep going diligently”. GCSE results are way above average and A Level results rank the school among the best in the country. Teachers rate Woodcote as an enjoyable place to work due to the “fabulous students and supportive colleagues”.
This is a terrific opportunity for an innovative teacher to join our forward-looking and successful English Department. In 2017, the new P8 measures saw the school’s headline figure as +0.25. 80% of our students achieved grade 4+ in English Language. 100% of our students passed English ‘A’ level. The Department is well resourced and committed to developing its vision whereby all students fulfil their potential.
Applications are welcomed from both experienced teachers and NQTs and may particularly suit someone returning to teaching after family commitments. We are prepared to look at flexible working including significant part-time.
