Job summary

We are seeking to appoint a dynamic, ambitious individual who will promote and contribute to the continued development of our sixth form provision. We have approximately 230 students in the sixth form, who are overseen by the Head of Sixth Form, supported by the Deputy Head of Sixth Form and a Pastoral Support Team. We are extremely proud of recent recognition from Ofsted who graded the sixth form ‘outstanding’ in May 2019; this truly is an excellent opportunity for a first-rate practitioner to lead the sixth form to further success.  Teaching commitment (no preference for subject offered) is likely to be around 0.5 FTE

We hope our application pack will give you a better understanding of The Burgate School and Sixth Form and encourage you to apply.
