Are you passionate about high-quality teaching and learning and a life changing quality of education? 

Do you have the experience, skills, insights and determination to lead this ambitious school from Good to Outstanding alongside a values driven Principal and Senior Leadership Team?  

If you can answer yes to these four questions, we would love to hear from you.  

We are seeking to appoint a well-qualified and enthusiastic teacher of Design Technology who can deliver an enriching curriculum, within the Art & Technology department. This post will have a curriculum split of approximately 80% DT and 20% Art, so an understanding of both subject specialisms will be required, but will also be supported by additional CPD.

We are offering an exciting opportunity for a qualified teacher to join our successful Art and Technology Department. The suitable colleague will have the desire to develop and deliver an outstanding curriculum offer, which will support the schools’ keys priorities.

You would be expected to develop, plan and deliver highly effective learning experiences to all students across every key stage and lead a transformational extracurricular offer.

With our outstanding commitment to developing new teachers, we are delighted to invite applications from both ECT’s and experienced teachers.

St Mark's were inspected by Ofsted in March 2023.  The Academy performed exceptionally well in all areas, with particular reference made to expert curriculum design; transformational teaching and learning underpinned by the highest expectations; the extra-curricular offer and staff and pupil wellbeing.   

 The report states, “there is enough evidence of improved performance to suggest that the school could be judged outstanding if we were to carry out a graded (section 5) inspection now.” 

 This could not be a more exciting time to join the St Mark's family. Outcomes at the Academy at both Key Stage 4 and 5 are in the top 10% of all schools nationally. In 2022 an impressive 58% of all A Levels were awarded A*-B grades and the Progress 8 Score was +0.59-ALPS Grade 2.  

St Mark’s Church of England Academy is part of Anthem Schools Trust, a multi-academy trust serving over 8,000 children and young people in 16 schools across the East Midlands, London and the Thames Valley.    

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and require all staff and volunteers to share and demonstrate this commitment.
