Outwood Academy Danum Trust seeks applications from outstanding applicants with integrity, imagination and energy for this rewarding role. This is a fantastic opportunity for a teacher who is looking for their first step into leadership or an existing leader who is enthusiastic and driven to join our Family of Schools. The school became part of the Outwood Grange Family of Schools on 1 September 2016, and work has begun in bringing about rapid improvements in behaviour, attainment and progress, and we fully expect to secure outstanding judgements at our next Ofsted inspection.
An excellent knowledge and understanding of the subject is essential, as is a passion for Computer Science. You must possess the skills and determination to make as significant difference to the lives of our students and share our single goal of ‘students first’. Your relentless drive will ensure our students gain the best possible outcomes.
You will be an excellent teacher with the ability to teach Computer Science at Key Stage 3 & 4 and ICT up to Key Stage 5. It is desirable for you to have some experience of leading on a project within a school to demonstrate your ability to lead. The department strives to deliver results far beyond the National Average to improve student life chances.
The Outwood Grange Family of Schools offers:
• The opportunity to work and progress across the Family of schools
• The chance to apply for leadership roles in the Deeps working across the whole Academy.
• The support and expertise of our Directors working across the Family of Schools
• A full and detailed programme of support and development for ECTs.
• A further comprehensive programme of professional development is provided through the Outwood Institute of Education.
We believe that all teaching and support staff posts within our Family of Schools are key posts in terms of supporting student success and achievement across a broad range of subjects and experiences. As such, we are keen to recruit dedicated and ambitious professionals who will add value to our academies in both academic terms and through involvement in the fabric of learning and success beyond the classroom.
