What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking to appoint an ambitious, able and enthusiastic Business Studies Teacher with responsibility for KS5.

We are also very proud of the achievements of our students. Under the new measures our students at Key Stage 4 made very good progress. Their Progress 8 score of +0.20 places us significantly above average of schools nationally, and we achieve 76% 9 to 4 in English and Maths. We are delighted that the vast majority of our students stay on to our Sixth Form and that 97% of our leavers gain a place at University or choose to enter apprenticeships and employment.

We offer our sixth form students a rich experience, combing a range of courses which includes A-Levels in Business Studies and Economics as well as BTEC Business, with a full enrichment programme. This combination of the academic and enrichment supports our students to become well rounded learners and has contributed to the success of our sixth form where we achieved ALPS 4 in 2022.

Our students follow an academic core curriculum throughout Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. This includes the study of History, Geography and a Language as well as English, Maths and Science. But our students also have the opportunity to do a range of practical and vocational subjects including a wide range of creative and performing arts, physical education and other humanities like Business studies, Psychology and Economics.
