You will be supported by a passionate and hands-on faculty leadership team; as well as experienced and dedicated teachers within that team.

This post offers an exciting career opportunity. The post would suit either an ECT or experienced teacher. You will work in a supportive and collaborative environment. If appointed as an ECT the post will be payable from 1st July 2023 in order to help in your preparation before the September start.

At Key Stage 4, students can choose GCSE Computer Science or BTEC Creative Media Production. Students who choose not to take up an ICT option subject undertake Core ICT as part of their development of vital skills for life and for the workplace.

The school has developed extensively its use of the Google Suite, both as a platform for e-learning and an effective means of communication and storing, assigning and submitting work.

In ICT & Computing at Key Stage 3, students will have 75 minutes of ICT time every fortnight. They undertake a wide range of topics within the National Curriculum Computing Strategy, including Computational Thinking, Using Data, Creative Graphic Design Web Design, E-Safety, Cyber Security and the Use of ICT in Society and the Wider World. Topics are often project based to provide a real-world feel. At Key Stage 4, students get the opportunity to take GCSE Computer Science or BTEC Creative Media Production as an option subject. However, within our ethos to constantly find the most innovative and dynamic curriculum mix, we are always looking at the merits of new courses.

Business Studies is a massively popular option subject at Key Stage 4, with students able to opt for the BTEC Tech Award in Enterprise.
