You will join us at an exciting and seminal time in our rich 90-year history with the recent opening of our Primary phase as we begin our journey as an all through school for pupils aged 4 - 16.

Our innovative use of education technology has seen us recognised as a Microsoft Showcase School as we develop at the forefront as pioneers in educational technology and innovation.

Applications are encouraged from inspirational, aspirational teachers who will share our passion for high quality pedagogy informed by the latest research. As a key member of the team, you will have the ability to teach across Key Stages 3 and 4. A thirst for championing computing across all aspects of the school is vital, along with the enthusiasm and commitment to continue to drive forward at this exciting time.
