What skills and experience we're looking for

This is an exciting opportunity to join a vibrant successful school and be part of an experienced, effective DT department with a proven track record of raising achievement. Over the past decade, Brymore has built up a reputation as one of the most sought-after schools in the area.

What the school offers its staff

What we offer:

  • Employee Rewards scheme – High Street discounts, Staff Wellbeing centre
  • A Trust wide leadership competencies framework
  • A professional leadership development coach
  • A Trust wide staff wellbeing policy
  • Personalised professional development supported by an exceptional team within the Academy and driven through The Continual Professional Growth Policy which replaces appraisal and pay progression

Further details about the role

Our DT department is outstanding, with a strong reputation locally and nationally for great teaching and the highest achievement. Due to its success and popularity, all students study DT at GCSE – it is a core subject, not an option. In addition, we offer Level 2 Engineering, an option taken by two thirds of students. Thanks to our forge and foundry we are able to teach blacksmithing and metalwork, alongside more traditional woodworking. Originally a Technical School, the DT facilities at Brymore are second to none.

We are looking for an enthusiastic, motivated and morally driven DT teacher, with a firm belief in attention to detail and the ability to build strong relationships. You will have a passion to make DT fun and accessible and a desire to ensure that students achieve the best they possibly can.

Brymore is a unique and happy place to work. Our students, staff and parents are loyal and proud of what we do here. The beautiful setting in the Quantocks, fantastic facilities, good behaviour and high achievement of our students are just some of the reasons why people enjoy working at Brymore.

As part of the BTCT, we also benefit from excellent support at Trust level.
