TPS, Full time, permanent


We are looking for a creative and enthusiastic Teacher of Food, who is committed to the progress and achievement of all pupils, to join our Technology department.  This post is suitable for both an NQT and an experienced teacher looking for professional development in a high-achieving school.


Blue Coat has a strong track record for high achievement and growing teachers and leaders. We will provide the opportunity for you to fulfil your ambitions and potential in a dynamic and supportive environment.  This is a fabulous opportunity for an NQT or an experienced teacher wishing to develop their career teaching KS4 and A level in an outstanding school.


The Blue Coat School:

• was judged to be outstanding in all areas by OFSTED 2011-12

• has a record of attainment and achievement at GCSE which is consistently significantly above national average

• has a large, thriving and oversubscribed Sixth Form 

• has a happy, positive ethos, with clear expectations and boundaries: students enjoy their learning and are eager to do their best

• is located in Oldham town centre with excellent transport links to Manchester / South Manchester e.g. 30 mins travel time by either car or metro link 

The Blue Coat School is part of the Cranmer Education Trust, a growing community of multi faith, multi-talented schools across North East Manchester. St Anne’s Academy joined the Trust in March 2021 and we are looking forward to opening The Brian Clarke Church of England Academy in September 2022. Mayfield Primary School and East Crompton St George’s Primary School are both also part of the Cranmer Education Trust. Blue Coat is also the lead school of the Oldham and Tameside Teaching School Hub.

We work collaboratively, share good practice and have a Trust-wide approach to development. All schools are partners in Manchester Nexus, our SCITT, which operates out of Blue Coat. All schools bring their expertise to share. We need to make sure we have the right people in the right place doing the job that is needed to build excellent provision for our children and young people. Staff are supported and developed professionally to make sure they can do that and are valued and recognised for their work.
