What skills and experience we're looking for

ECTs and talented unqualified teachers (eg qualified chefs) would be welcome to apply – we have an excellent track record of supporting professional chefs into the first years of their teaching career.

Our department is one of the strongest in the school and consistently delivers exceptionally high standards in both progress and attainment terms. Students thoroughly enjoy Food Lessons at this school with good numbers continuing at GCSE and into Sixth Form. They are taught a highly practical hands-on curriculum with challenging recipes and restaurant standard skills being learned. Our hospitality and catering course is very popular and has recently innovated to include an element of restaurant French, providing an important extra dimension to the students’ experience.

We would love to show you around our department and hear what you could bring to our team.

The appointee will be committed to our high expectations and core values – we welcome applications from teachers irrespective of their faith or lack of it. However, we ask for applicants to appreciate and respect the beliefs of others and have strong moral principles.

What the school offers its staff

Staff of the school benefit from priority admission for their children. Our admissions policy effectively guarantees staff a place in the school for their children. With nearly 850 applications for our 150 places each year, this is a significant perk! In addition, staff will be provided with a comprehensive induction programme and laptop, childcare vouchers are available, and childcare is available at a neighbouring provision with discounted rates for staff members.
