Business Studies and Economics Teacher job summary

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic Business Studies and Economics teacher to join our successful department. The appointed candidate would be expected to have excellent subject knowledge, contribute to the teaching of both Business Studies and Economics and get involved in the department’s extra-curricular offer. We have a very supportive and tight-knit team who are focused on delivering the very best learning opportunities for our students.

We were graded Outstanding in every category by Ofsted in March 2017.

Educating approximately 1200 students, The Bishop’s Stortford High School provides a single-sex education for boys in Years 7 to 11 and has a large, thriving co-educational sixth form, with over one hundred girls on roll. We have achieved a positive Progress 8 score every year since the measure was introduced, which compares very favourably to a national average for boys of -0.28. At A-Level, we had a 74% A* - B pass rate in 2022, 66% in 2021 and 61% in 2020. We have a strong ethos, based on high expectations and standards for all, a committed and supportive staff who deliver high quality, engaging lessons and well-behaved students with excellent attitudes to learning.

We are due to re-locate to a brand new ‘state of the art’ school on a new site less than half a mile from our current location. This exciting project will provide us with a fantastic new learning environment, supported by cutting edge technology, and huge opportunities for the future.

The school provides a supportive environment in which both newly qualified and experienced teachers have excellent opportunities to develop their careers. A formidable range of extra-curricular activities are available to students which include numerous overseas trips, languages exchanges, cultural visits, first class fixture cards in all major sports, a diverse and high-quality music and drama programme, DofE, Model UN conference, Young Enterprise, debating, public speaking and much more. The school places a strong emphasis on staff development and the appointed candidate can expect to gain significant enjoyment and professional fulfilment from working here.

An application form and further details are downloadable from the website www.tbshs.org. Application forms and a cover letters should be sent to Mrs D Landers, HT’s PA, at Debbie.landers@tbshs.org
