Head of ICT and Computer Science job summary

Head of ICT and Computer Science

We are looking for an inspirational and forward-thinking existing Head of subject or an ambitious teacher to lead the evolution of the curriculum. This is an exciting time to be leading a subject that plays such a crucial role of informing and daily life and is only likely to increase its importance in the future.

ICT is currently delivered to KS3 and covers a range of topics. Computer science is a new course we are introducing from September 2024 at GCSE but we are keen to make this a key part of our curriculum offer at KS4 and KS5.

The school was accredited as World Class in July 2021 and as such, we are committed to providing a world-class education for every student through a well-designed and balanced curriculum. Our established culture provides a calm, safe and stimulating learning environment.

Ethical leadership is at the core of all decision making at Southfield. As such, staff are valued, treated with respect and afforded a diverse range of opportunities that come with professional trust. We place significant emphasis on working collegiately as a staff to share our expertise and subsequently enhance the learning experience with our students. Every member of the staff is involved in a variety of professional learning programmes that take place every Wednesday across the academic year. All teachers are members of the Chartered College of Teaching providing access to the latest evidence and research.

You would be joining a friendly, hard-working team, with an ethos of collaborative planning and shared resources.

The post will commence in September 2024 but we would consider an earlier start date if the candidate was available.

With our trust growing, we are likely to have many more career development opportunities coming up in future.

The Closing date for applications is Monday 26th February 2024.

We may interview suitable candidates prior to the closing date.
