Job summary

 Kirkby High School wish to appoint a suitably qualified, enthusiastic and energetic teacher of design technology (resistant materials). The successful candidate will be passionate about their subject, dedicated to providing exceptional learning experiences in the classroom, and keen to contribute to wider aspects of school life.  

The successful applicant will be a strong team player committed to the Academy’s vision of “A community that believes in top class teaching and a pastoral care system that is second to none ensures that we prepare our young people for a bright and optimistic future, filled with opportunity”.   We have very high expectations of all staff and for the right person this is a superb opportunity to further develop teaching and leadership skills through bespoke CPD provision across the trust. You will be working in a modern, well resourced, supportive environment, which has excellent facilities.  Our last Ofsted inspection (December 2018) judged three criteria as ‘Good’ – effectiveness of leadership and management, quality of teaching, learning and assessment and personal development, behaviour and welfare.   Inspectors highlighted the vastly improved leadership and high ambitions which has helped to improve the quality of teaching and pupils’ behaviour. 

Kirkby High School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and adheres to the Equality Act 2010. We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment; any offer of employment will be subject to receipt of an enhanced DBS disclosure.  To comply with the Asylum and Immigration Act 1996 all prospective employees will be required to supply evidence of eligibility to work in the UK.
