This post is suitable for both newly qualified and experienced teachers.
Last year Overton Grange School won The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Competition in the Intermediate Science category for 2018. This was a fantastic achievement and reflects the hard work, enthusiasm and innovative approach to Science by our teachers and students.
Overton Grange is a popular comprehensive school, with around 1250 students on roll and has enjoyed consistent academic success; rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted in both 2016 and 2019. We have recently started working in partnership with the University of Brighton Academies Trust. The school is fully committed to inclusion and has a Hearing Support Department.
The school is committed to the CPD of its staff; ‘Staff speak highly of the support and mentoring they receive. Middle leaders participate in a range of professional courses. They share good practice and support each other well to develop strong professional links. Middle leaders are actively engaged in the professional development of teachers and support those who are experienced or new to the profession.’ (Ofsted 2016)
Overton Grange School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. Candidates will be required to undergo the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) enhanced disclosure process.
