Required from September 2018 or sooner Outer London Pay Scale (up to M6 £37,642)
Woodcote High School has long been a top choice for parents in the Coulsdon & Purley area of South London. Located in a pleasant suburban setting on the borders of Surrey, Sutton and Croydon, the school has a rural feel but is officially in the Outer London salary band.
Rated “good” by Ofsted in 2015 in all areas. Inspectors praised our students as “attentive, hardworking and practically always keen to learn. They get down to work fast and keep going diligently”. GCSE results are way above average and A Level results are improving rapidly. Teachers rate Woodcote as an enjoyable place to work due to the “fabulous students and supportive colleagues”.
This is an excellent opportunity to work with our highly motivated and innovative staff in this forward-looking and successful school and department. In the summer 2017 results, A*/A grades in the separate sciences were all above the national average at over 53%, with 100% A*-C. AS/A2 science subjects also performed exceptionally well, with the majority above ALPS targets. Student uptake of Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Psychology and Applied Science at Key Stage 5 also continues to go from strength to strength.
The school is very well resourced, with the science department recently undergoing a £1.6m refurbishment, with all class teachers delivering lessons in their own laboratory.
If you have energy and a passion for your subject, then we would like to hear from you. Visits are welcomed and encouraged so please telephone the school or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to arrange an informal visit, before you apply.
