Required for September 2019
Are you an inspirational, dedicated teacher who is committed to raising expectations and attainment? Do you consistently deliver well planned lessons, track individual pupil progress and provide structured feedback?

We are a growing department with increasing numbers of students choosing to study Religious Studies, many of whom progress to Philosophy and Religion courses in the Sixth Form. Our exam results for 2018 were excellent with 89% gaining 4-9 at GCSE and 100% gaining A-C’s.
Writhlington School and Mendip Studio School are part of the Midsomer Norton Schools’ Partnership and are both located on a large modern campus that benefits from exceptional media facilities, a 400-seat theatre and a Community Sports Centre. The school is committed to supporting staff in their professional development and working collaboratively to drive towards the goal of consistently refining pedagogy and practice with a pupil centred mindset.
The teaching, leadership and pastoral support across the schools means that our students get the benefit of shared facilities and curriculum opportunities. Mendip Studio School has recently received a ‘Good’ rating from Ofsted. The inspection outcome is a testament to the hard work, talent and commitment of all staff across the campus.
New staff ideas are encouraged and there are a range of opportunities to lead and to contribute to its wide range of extracurricular activities: a large Combined Cadet Force, and international links with China, Tanzania & Rwanda that support the 14-19 curriculum.
If you would like to work in a collaborative, forward-thinking and supportive school environment, apply by 2pm, Tuesday 21 May 2019.
Interviews will be held on Friday 24th May 2019.
