Do you want to work with young people? Are you considering a career in teaching, then this could be the job for you. The main purpose of the role is to support learning and teaching within the school with day to day cover of classes in order to provide continuity of student learning. Previous experience is not necessary as full training will be given. Experience of working with teenagers would be an advantage. This is an exciting opportunity and will include some admin duties to support selected departments when not covering lessons. The salary for this role is £15,435pa (£18,107pa fte) for 36 hours a week, term time only.
We have achieved excellent examination results which are improving and well above the national average in most cases. In 2016, 72% of students gained an A*-C in Mathematics and 74% in English where a quarter of all grades were A*-A as they were in a dozen other GCSE subjects. Outcomes in the Sixth Form are also strong, with the majority of students securing first choice University places including Oxford, Exeter, York and Warwick. In addition to academic success, we also believe in a holistic education and therefore offer a wide range of enrichment activities for our students to experience.
In our last Ofsted inspection in June 2013, Blenheim was graded as ‘Good’ in all categories and we are confident that much has been achieved since that time. Our Ofsted report can be accessed from our website. Together with the Leadership Team and dedicated staff, we are determined to work tirelessly to ensure that Blenheim becomes one of Surrey’s outstanding providers of education with specialism in Science, Technology and Maths (STEM).
As an Academy, we fully embrace the task of being an organisation that relentlessly pursues academic excellence, develops creativity, skills for life and prepares our students to take their place in a constantly changing world. I am therefore looking for a person, with energy and drive to join us.
We have a highly collaborative approach to teaching, with a strong focus on teaching and learning. As every student and member of staff has an iPad for learning, the successful candidate will need to be prepared to use this technology within lessons, as appropriate, as a learning tool. A team of staff and student ‘iPad Gurus’ are on hand to provide support and assistance in getting the best from this resource.
The school has a very strong team ethos and although everyone works very hard, it is a fun and supportive environment. We have a highly commended induction programme, mentor support for new staff and an innovative approach embedded in traditional values.
Closing date: Sunday, 11th December 2016.
Blenheim High School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The position advertised is subject to an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check.
