Job summary

  Thank you for your interest in this post and we look forward to receiving your application. This is an exciting opportunity for someone to join our school. We are looking for someone who is:  • passionate about high quality teaching and learning, 

• offers inspirational and caring guidance for young people and 

• works collaboratively, asks questions and is keen to learn.  The Bradley Arts Centre has been open since 2005, with art, music and drama organised around a central courtyard.  We are very open to ideas for exploiting this facility and for further developing the links between drama, music and art. The successful candidate will be given full support and will be encouraged to engage in further professional development which we believe will benefit both the individual and the school. We have a strong induction programme, particularly for ECTs who will be part of the South Farnham Educational Trust Teaching School Hub and whose salaries will be backdated to 1st August. The successful applicant is likely to be a form tutor. As the school transitioned from being a Local Authority Community School to forming a MAT, a key element was maintaining the full benefit and protection of the National Pay & Conditions. Similarly, staff appointed from other academies are not disadvantaged, e.g. by counting service towards sick pay and maternity leave. The school takes a constructive approach towards Performance Management & Appraisal and Pay Progression and offers many opportunities for career development through paid responsibilities.

About The Ashcombe School

The Ashcombe School is a mixed comprehensive school for pupils of all abilities between the ages of 11 and 18 based in Dorking, Surrey. There are approximately 1,450 pupils on roll at Ashcombe (including around 250 in the Sixth Form) and 150 members of staff. The school is highly sought-after and is over subscribed for September 2021. This is due to a wide range of factors including its facilities, academic results, standards of teaching, pastoral care, the wide range of trips and extra-curricular activities and the resultant attitudes of its pupils. In its January 2019 visit, Ofsted commented that “Pupils’ attitudes towards learning are very positive. Pupils are attentive and responsive in equal measure in lessons. As a result, there is a very harmonious learning atmosphere".
