Copleston High School is a popular 11-18 mixed comprehensive noted for its caring and disciplined atmosphere. It was judged as a 'Good school with outstanding features' by Ofsted in April 2013. As a school we are committed to raising standards of learning and teaching within all subject areas. You will be impressed by the outstanding sports facilities available to staff, students and the wider community.
You will teach ICT across the ability range at KS3 and KS4. You will have high standards and be committed to meeting the needs of all students whilst developing a positive working relationship with students. At KS3 students follow a SOW designed by the school in line with the new Computing/ICT curriculum. At KS4 and KS5 the department offers three possible pathways:
- Computer Science (OCR GCSE at KS4 and OCR GCE at KS5)
- IT (Edexcel GCSE / AQA Technical Award Level 2 in ICT at KS4, OCR GCE ICT / BTEC Level 3 at KS5)
- Graphic Communication (AQA GCSE at KS4 and AQA GCE at KS5).
Being able to teach the Computer Science curriculum at KS4 would be a plus but is not mandatory as the timetable would focus mainly on ICT/Computing in year 7/8 and ICT in year 9, 10 and 11. Some experience in the creative aspects of ICT (graphic communication and multimedia editing skills) would be a real strength to your application.
- An ability to teach another subject(s) would be an advantage.
The school has a strongly supportive ethos and is deeply committed to the professional development of staff. We offer an excellent induction programme to all colleagues who join us.
Applications are welcome from both experienced teachers, who are looking to broaden their experience, and from newly qualified teachers. We could pay an NQT from 1 July 2017.
