What skills and experience we're looking for

Do you want to be part of a team who supports students to send code to the International Space station to carry out research in weather patterns? Perhaps you would like to travel to Paris to take part in an international exhibit for new technologies? We are a passionate team of coders who revel in teaching students how to create algorithms that solve problems successfully. Would you like to be part of this team?

Computer Science is a highly valued subject at Harington School with the talented team consistently achieving outstanding outcomes across all the qualifications we offer. Progression rates through to A level are very strong and the popularity of the subject has grown significantly with students enjoying the strong programming element of the course. Alongside high academic standards, the team have a strong commitment to providing extracurricular opportunities for students. In recent years this has included field trips to Disneyland Paris, and an opportunity to speak to an astronaut on the International Space Station as a result of winning the AstroPi competition for aspiring programmers. After-school clubs such as Cyber Discovery and Cyber-start Girls provide opportunities for students of all ages to explore computing beyond the Key Stage 3, GCSE or A level curriculum. You will be joining an experienced and highly-qualified team who have high expectations of themselves and the students they teach. At A level and GCSE, there are clearly planned curriculums in place to support new staff on arrival.

There are outstanding facilities throughout Harington School offering excellent teaching resources. Harington School is part of the Rutland and District Schools’ Federation, along with Catmose College, both of which have been graded outstanding by Ofsted. Candidates will also have the opportunity of teaching GCSE Computer Science at Catmose College.

Harington school is an academic sixth form with a proven track record of delivering strong results at A level. We are passionate about raising student achievement and work tirelessly to ensure no one is left behind.

We are privileged to be large enough to offer a wide range of curriculum and enrichment activities but small enough to maintain a family ethos where all students are known personally.

Based in a state of the art building specifically designed for A level teaching, students benefit from being taught by highly committed, experienced and talented teaching staff who are all subject specialists. At Harington we naturally work hard in lessons but that is not enough, students are actively encouraged to engage in all the other opportunities available to ensure they leave as well-rounded and ambitious young adults.
