Teacher of Computing Science and ICT - Claydon High School

Full time  MPR to UPR

Required for June 2019

‘Be the best you can be’

I do not fear computers, I fear the lack of them. (Isaac Asimov)

We are looking for a well-qualified and enthusiastic teacher to teach Computing Science across both key stages and an ICT qualification at KS4.  The successful candidate will be passionate about teaching their subject, committed to motivating students to reach their full potential and will contribute to our whole school development and the raising of standards.

This post has become vacant due to our current Computing Teacher achieving a promotion at a school in Essex; he has developed the curriculum alongside DT colleagues. The successful candidate will be joining a department of four and supporting the Head of Faculty and the rest of the team in improving student outcomes further.  Due to the size of the school and the nature of the timetable, colleagues may need to be able to offer a second subject.  The successful candidate will ideally be looking to contribute to the extra-curricular programme and able to demonstrate an innovative and interactive style of teaching.

This post would be suitable for a new entrant to the profession or a colleague seeking to broaden their experience.  Claydon High School, in liaison with local providers, provide an excellent support programme for newly appointed staff.  NQTs will be paid for working in July if they are available to come into school at the end of the summer term.  We pride ourselves on our positive hardworking ethos and collegiate atmosphere. 

Claydon High School is a popular mixed comprehensive school on the outskirts of Ipswich, easily accessed from the A12 and A14. 

We look forward to hearing from you.
