Teacher of Computing job summary

We are seeking to appoint a Teacher of Computing who will develop excitement and a passion for Computing in all students to join our outstanding Computing department at The Castle School from September 2022.

We offer an exciting and rewarding place to work, with access to the highest quality professional development, which ensures you are at the forefront of teaching and learning innovation. Our students are keen to learn and succeed; they appreciate their teachers’ support and dedication.

The Castle School is an outstanding school; it is good to have this recognised by OFSTED but it is more important that our students continue to receive the best education we can give them. Our students achieve some of the best exam results in the UK. We continue to achieve the top attendance rate in Somerset and that seems to me to be a good indicator of how much students enjoy school. We have been one of the top schools nationally for a number of years and are heavily oversubscribed with about 550 applications a year for 240 places.

This doesn’t just happen of course. We work hard for our students and instil a positive learning ethos that is appreciative of others and supportive. Students have high aspirations and expectations of us as we do of them. Students will tell you the best thing about the school is the teachers and teachers will say the best thing about the school are the children and the staff who they work with. Children here achieve more than expected progress but it is critical to me that every child has a sense of belonging and worth, and that every child participates in enrichment and learning. We all know that exam results matter, they allow our students to progress in their education and to embark upon careers, but no less important is the kind of person they become. This leads to happy positive relationships, good health and to go on and live happy, prosperous (in every sense) and fulfilled lives. That is what we want for every single one of our children.
