What the school offers its staff

South Craven School, supported by South Craven Academy Trust since May 2011, is an 11-18 mixed comprehensive school situated in a semi-rural location on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales with easy access to Leeds, Bradford and Greater Manchester. South Craven achieves strong results at both GCSE and A level and has an excellent vocational programme.

Learning is placed firmly at the heart of the South Craven School community. Our main priority is to ensure our students have the best opportunities for success and the highest possible aspirations for the future. We are very proud of our excellent reputation in our local community, recognising our responsibility to provide young people with the skills and qualities to respond to the challenges of a fast-changing world.

An exciting opportunity has arisen within the Design & Technology faculty for an inspiring, enthusiastic and talented teacher to join the team as a Teacher of Design & Technology. The department offers two very popular programmes: Design and Technology GCSE and A Level and Engineering at Level 2 and Level 3. The faculty is very proud of its extensive workshop and machining facilities which have recently been refitted and updated. These are used to develop a diverse range of skills for our students. Staff development and continuous curriculum development is at the heart of the faculty.

The successful candidate will join the team in September 2024 and the role offers excellent opportunities for either an ECT or an experienced teacher.
