Contract type: Full Time
Salary: TLR negotiable for outstanding candidate.

Suitable for NQTs: Yes

We are looking for an enthusiastic I-media teacher to join our high-performing faculty, which achieved superb results last year. You will have excellent subject knowledge and be able to teach consistently good lessons.  This role will require the postholder to teach lessons within a KS3 IT curriculum and Creative iMedia at KS4. There will also be the opportunity to teach a small amount of KS4 Business-oriented lessons.  

This is an exciting time to join Hornchurch High School; we are developing an innovative new curriculum that reflects the needs and aspirations of our students.  We have recently received considerable investment in materials and new buildings, which are due to open in February 2020.  We hope to mirror the expansion of our accommodation with an increase in staffing over the coming months and years.  We were recently inspected by Ofsted and secured a ‘good’ judgement.  Our results have improved consecutively for the past four years and we anticipate that this trend will continue with our 2019-20 results.  We want to recruit a bright and enthusiastic teacher who can help plan and invest in our new curriculum model and ensure that the new faculty grows to embody a key aspect of our curriculum.  Experience of teaching business studies is very much desired, but is not essential.

We offer excellent training, exciting links with other school partners within our Multi-Academy Trust and provide opportunities for personal development.  We have a vibrant work place with friendly, supportive colleagues and an excellent work/life balance.  Both NQTs and experienced teachers are welcome to apply.  

We are an aged 11-16 mixed comprehensive with good pupils, supportive parents and an excellent staff. We welcome visits to the school and if you would like to arrange a tour please contact Ann Tyler on  01708 691441 or email atyler@hornchurchhigh.com. If you have subject-related questions contact our Head of Business and I-Media, Andy Dickens at  adickens@hornchurchhigh.com
