What skills and experience we're looking for

This is an exciting opportunity for an aspiring senior teacher with a fascination for the learning and teaching of computing, who has high standards, works well with colleagues, and can bring a fresh and dynamic approach to improvement. We are also looking for someone who shares our values, is ambitious for all children, and will help to build and sustain our school culture.

What the school offers its staff

Thomas Keble is a very popular, successful, and oversubscribed 11 – 16 comprehensive school, located in an area of outstanding natural beauty in the Cotswolds. This vacancy has arisen due to the relocation of the current postholder.

You will be joining a community where teachers can teach and our students are eminently teachable. This means you can impart your passion for Computing without having to constantly assert your authority. We don’t grade lessons, or prescribe how to teach and we are informed by the new and emerging evidence around learning and teaching, rather than the latest fad or government whim. As a small school, we can be agile and innovative, as we look to respond to the changing educational landscape.

Thomas Keble was chosen as one of the first 50 schools nationally to be rebuilt under the Schools Rebuilding Programme (SRP). With 80% of the estate being rebuilt, we will take occupancy in January 2025. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work in a fantastic environment.

Our last Ofsted inspection was in July 2023 and the school was graded as ‘Good’. The statements below are taken from this report:

“Leaders have created a nurturing environment which supports pupils to learn and achieve well.”

“Pupils’ behaviour is calm and friendly and disruption to learning is rare.”

“Leaders have designed a broad and ambitious curriculum.”

“Pupils feel happy and safe at school.”

If you would like to apply for this post, please read the accompanying application pack, including the job description and person specification carefully. This is a rare opportunity for a Computing specialist to join our middle leader team. As a core subject, we are seeking a passionate practitioner to further develop provision and achievement and to inspire a committed and experienced department team.

Commitment to safeguarding

Thomas Keble School are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and we expect all staff, Trustees, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment. Our aim is to ensure child protection concerns and referrals are handled sensitively, professionally and in ways that support specific needs of the individual child. Through providing a caring, safe and stimulating environment we aim to foster an atmosphere of trust, respect and security. Our staff form a part of a wider safeguarding system for children and will work together with children’s services, the police, health services and other agencies.
