Head of Computing
TLR 2C £7017
Start September 2021

A once in a career opportunity to work in a brand new, state of the art £34 million school.
This is a genuinely unique opportunity to take on a founding role at the first ‘all through’ school in Essex.

The Beaulieu Park School opened the doors to 60 Reception children in September 2018. In September 2019, another cohort was welcomed into the Primary School, together with 180 Year 7 students. We were pleased that we are oversubscribed with families nominating us as their first choice school again this year. The school will grow one year at a time until it is full in 2024. We are already planning our 6th form provision.

We are looking to appoint a Head of Computing to take responsibility for the provision of Computing in our secondary school. As the first Head of Computing at the school, you will be responsible for introducing computing to Year 8 and Year 9 and preparing to successfully deliver Computing at GCSE when our Year 9 students move into Year 10 in September 2022. You will lead on the growth of the department to ensure it has the capacity to deliver A Level too when the time comes.

The Principal and Governors are open-minded regarding the professional profile of potential applicants. Whilst not suitable for an NQT, this post may be suitable for someone that is relatively new to the profession, or indeed for a more experienced colleague. What is crucial is that the successful candidate has the skills, drive, energy and ambition to make Computing here at Beaulieu Park a real beacon of success.

Specific responsibilities are outlined in the Job Description.
