We wish to appoint a full time talented and enthusiastic Teacher of ICT & Computer Science to join a thriving and high achieving school. Applications are invited from individuals of all faiths and none, who will support the catholic ethos of our school. This is an exciting opportunity to work in a school where students enjoy learning and achieve excellent outcomes. A substantial number of students take ICT and Computer Science at Key Stages 4 and 5, where we offer BTEC Computing at Level 3.

Our repeatedly oversubscribed School achieved 80% 5 A*-C (4+) including Maths and English in 2017 and the Sixth Form received an ‘outstanding’ ALP’s judgement in 2016. In our previous Ofsted Section 5 inspection both ‘Behaviour & Safety’ and our Sixth Form were judged ‘outstanding’. In our most recent monitoring visit (January 2018) Ofsted stated that the ‘…steady and reassuring approach ensures the strong commitment of staff…’ and ‘the teachers are welcoming and friendly, and it creates an atmosphere where you belong…’

In ICT we achieve consistently outstanding results – in June 2017 100% BTEC Level 1/2, 63% Level 2 and 100% BTEC Level 3. The department has dedicated teaching rooms fully equipped with interactive white boards and audio visual equipment. 

We offer:

  • A strong feedback culture and established rich programme of mentoring and training.
  • A supportive environment in which your enthusiasm will be nurtured and talents valued.
  • A commitment to your professional development, leadership training and career management.
  • The chance to network with outstanding practitioners as part of the ‘Partners in      Excellence’ programme.
  • Free access to our on-site gymnasium.
  • Residential      experiences available to Austria, Spain, Belgium, France, South Africa,      Borneo and USA.

Please contact Janet Rigby, Office Manager on jrigby3@suttonmail.org to arrange a visit or an informal discussion with the Headteacher, Mr Philip McCullagh.
