About the department

Successful candidates will be building on the solid foundations of our KS3 curriculum. Our goal in Years 7-9 has been to develop a robust conceptual framework that prepares students to apply a broad range of ideas to a variety of circumstances at KS4 and beyond.

It is our belief that arriving at KS4 with a deep-rooted understanding of core concepts will allow students to apply their knowledge in increasingly complex scenarios when the time comes.

We are incredibly ambitious for our students at GCSE, A Level and beyond. We are looking for a Head of Computer Science who will share these ambitions and have the knowledge and energy to make them happen.
