Food Technology Teacher with the possibility of Second in DT Department The Highcrest Academy, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire

Job description

Please apply immediately for a quick interview.

We are seeking a qualified teacher to join our successful Design and Technology Team. We are a forward-thinking department who work closely to ensure that students receive the best possible experience across all design and technology areas. The department is modern and well equipped. We have three technicians within the department, one of whom is solely used within the food technology room.

You should be familiar with the current food and nutrition curriculum and have experience of teaching up to KS4. This role could suit an NQT as a Teacher only. However, there is the possibility for a suitably experienced candidate to take on additional responsibilities as Second in Department.

Just 30 minutes by train from Central London, The Highcrest Academy is the first All Ability Academy in in the county of Buckinghamshire. It is culturally diverse and a vibrant school making it a fantastic place to teach. We have some students who will need all your support and yet we also featured in the national Ofsted report (2016) for providing challenge to the most able. Does this enthuse you?

There are approximately 950 students on roll, which includes the Sixth Form. A new building programme, just completed, comprises a brand new Sixth Form Centre, sports facilities including a gym and a new restaurant and coffee shop for both students and staff.

If you are passionate about education and want to really make a difference to the lives of young people then The Highcrest Academy could be the school for you; a thriving school in the heart of the community, with free on-site parking, staff recognition schemes and free gym to counter the “Friday Biscuits” and on-site coffee shop!
