What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking for a talented and dedicated teacher to join our committed team.The Computer Science Team at Weald is a dedicated and enthusiastic team of specialists who strive to engage and excite students across all year groups. We aim to support and promote the development of the students in our care into independent learners who can think creatively in order to reach their full potential and to achieve outstanding results. We pride ourselves on constantly looking to push the boundaries, ever looking for new ways to enhance the learning experience of the students. We are keen to try new things, to learn from others and constantly reflect on our practice to ensure the experience we provide meets the needs of our learners and prepares them to question, to challenge and be challenged, to enjoy and to succeed both at Weald and beyond. We are delighted that many of our students go on to read Computer Science and IT related subjects at University.

We offer Computer Science across all three key stages and our results at Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5 are excellent. Computer Science is optional at GCSE level. We have a large cohort of enthusiastic students studying the subject at GCSE and A-Level and the subject has been well established over the many years that both courses have been offered at Weald. The school teaches the OCR specification at GCSE and A-Level.
