Barnwood Park is a co-educational 11-16 comprehensive school. This is a very exciting time to be considering joining us as we continue our transition to being a fully mixed, growing and successful comprehensive school. We went through a period of steep slope improvement from 2012 and won an award from the DfE in 2015 for being one of the most improved schools in the country. We were officially recognised as a Good school by Ofsted in 2019.
We have recently undergone a major refurbishment which saw the addition of a new Sports Hall, new Dance and Drama Studios, a new IT suite, an additional DT room and a new Physics Lab. Alongside this we’ve also seen an increase in our numbers and popularity. Our school size has increased, from a maximum of 150 students in each year group to 180 since 2019, which is driving our need for a new English teacher. We are fully subscribed for Year 7 in September 2022 and were reported last year as the most over-subscribed school in the county of Gloucestershire. We won an award from the DfE in 2015 for being one of the most improved schools in the country and were officially recognised as a Good school by Ofsted in 2014 and again in 2019.
Barnwood Park have a committed staff team and a very high staff retention rate. We are looking for someone who will complement our team and support the school in its relentless focus on teaching and learning, seeking to increase the rates of progress and student achievements. We have a comprehensive and exciting CPD programme for all staff, so whether you are an experienced teacher or an ECT, we can offer you plenty of opportunities to develop.
In addition to this, we can also offer you:
• A strong and supportive Leadership Group
• An excellent body of motivated and innovative staff
• A diverse group of hardworking youngsters of all abilities who thrive on caring, challenging and inspiring teaching
• Professional support and development opportunities which will enable you to work creatively and innovatively in order to deliver high quality educational experiences for the students at Barnwood Park.
This post would be very suitable for an ECT, who would receive excellent support from the Department and our Deputy Head who supports all ECTs in school to feel happy, successful and part of the Barnwood Park family.
