(MATERNITY COVER – anticipated 1 year post)

Join a leading school which prides itself on the high quality of education, enrichment and care provided to all and is committed to the wellbeing of students and staff.

We are seeking to appoint a well-qualified, knowledgeable, and inspirational teacher of computing who is committed to the highest standards of learning, teaching, and achievement. This is an exciting opportunity to teach computing across key stages 3-5 and progress your career in a school where both student achievement and attitudes to learning are amongst the best in the region.

The successful candidate will have very high expectations and an unwavering commitment to all students maximising their potential through outstanding learning, teaching, and support. We welcome applications from Early Career Teachers, as well as those who are more experienced. The role is required from September 2022 until the return of the substantive postholder.

We are a fantastic learning community, set in one of Yorkshire’s most scenic areas, whose facilities have recently been enhanced by the completion of a multi-million-pound refurbishment and expansion project. Our Ofsted inspection of March 2017 confirmed us as an ‘Outstanding’ school in all areas, where students “attain highly and make excellent progress”, where behaviour is “exemplary” and where “teachers go the extra mile to make sure students achieve, feel cared for and thrive within a supportive and productive learning environment”. Since Ofsted’s highly positive endorsement, the school has continued to go from strength to strength with progress in 2019 well above average and in the top 10% of all schools nationally. Our success was also recognised in The Sunday Times Schools Guide 2022 with Ilkley Grammar School ranked in the top three best state secondary comprehensive schools in the north of England and named overall 7th best state secondary school in the north of the country.

If you have the subject expertise, vision, commitment, and people skills to contribute to this successful department, coupled with the ability to engage and enthuse our students with a love of computing, then we would like to hear from you.
