Teacher of Computer Science and IT job summary

Our Computer Science Curriculum and Pedagogy
In Year 7 and 8 we teach computing, which is the study of Computer Science with Information Technology seamlessly entwined. We have invested in the Replit resource “Teams for Education” to live track students’ coding. All students receive a chromebook from Year 7 which allows for exciting, dynamic teaching that takes students on a journey through a computing curriculum that follows national curriculum guidelines and means that by the time they are choosing their options for GCSEs, they are well informed on what it means to take a Computer Science or an IT course for further study.

In Years 9, 10 and 11 we currently offer GCSE Computer Science alongside the Level 2 BTEC Tech Award in Digital Information Technology. There is the option to grow the subject into the Sixth Form which represents a real opportunity for a teacher to help shape the future of the subject area.

Computer Science and Digital IT are extremely popular subjects within the school with an outstanding track record of success. The department is well resourced and the curriculum is continually being developed to further enhance the delivery of the subject. Our central location enables the faculty to access an extensive network of contacts which enables real opportunities for students to find engaging opportunities in the world of IT and enterprise. Examples of this include our Year 8s taking part in the AWS Get IT programme run by Amazon and the school's Computing club where students can explore their creativity through coding, Scratch projects, logic puzzles, riddles and more.

Additional allowances

Extra Responsibility Allowance of £2,500 per annum for the responsibility of Subject Coordinator.
