The Cherwell School is a high performing and oversubscribed comprehensive school in Oxford (approximately 2,000 students on roll, including 680 in the Sixth Form). We are delighted that we were judged ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted (October 2022) as we feel this is a fair reflection of the school, not least as we recognise that we have the capacity to develop and improve further.  We consider ourselves to be a school which has at its heart “opportunity, responsibility, excellence” and we aim to make this a deeper reality for all of our students and staff in the years to come.

We are seeking to appoint a qualified teacher who has a genuine excitement for excellence in the teaching and learning of Economics (A Level).  This is an ideal post for someone new to teaching (including ECT), or for an experienced teacher.  The successful candidate should enjoy working with young people, be motivated to develop their own professional practice and be able to make a positive contribution to our faculty. The ability to offer a second subject in addition to the Economics specialism would be desirable.

Our aims are supported by our designation as a National Teaching School and as a School Centred Initial Teacher Training provider.  We are committed to the professional learning and career development of our staff and work in conjunction with the River Learning Trust to continue to raise standards. 

We value the wellbeing of our staff and aim to support colleagues throughout their working lives.  Staff report high levels of wellbeing and attribute this to factors such as:

  • Well designed, sequenced and resourced curricula which are centralised

  • Feedback and marking approaches which are carefully considered for impact and workload

  • Clear, centralised Behaviour for Learning System; pastoral teams supported by non-teaching deputy year leaders

  • Lower than typical contact hours for classroom teachers and middle leaders

  • Excellent in-house and external CPD opportunities and regular opportunities for career development within the school and trust

  • Professional support for ECTs provided by experienced teams of staff

    You are welcome to contact the HR Department on 01865 558719 if you would like to know more about the role or the application process.

    The closing date for applications is Friday 29th September 2023 at 9.00am

    Applications will be considered on an on-going basis between now and the closing date.  Please submit your application at the earliest convenience as we reserve the right to withdraw the advertisement should a suitable candidate be successful.
