We are looking for a well-qualified and enthusiastic teacher of ICT and Business to join our successful ICT and Business departments. This post could suit an ECT as well as a more experienced candidate.
We are a dynamic and innovative ICT department who are looking to expand. With strong foundations being created in computing at KS3; student outcomes are going from strength to strength in both KS4 Computer Science and KS5 ICT. Many students continue to study and work in areas linked to ICT in further education and beyond.
The Business Studies department is growing and highly successful, with 3 GCSE classes in both years 10 and 11 for the past 3 years, as well as a strong uptake for 6th form. The department consistently delivers excellent outcomes across both KS4 and KS5. Many students choose to continue studying Business in further and higher education after leaving us at TBS.
The person appointed will be well supported through our teaching and learning coach, a well-established professional studies programme and through a comprehensive induction process. The school offers bespoke CPD opportunities ranging from National Professional Qualifications support to supporting MA programmes.
Our OFSTED inspection in February 2019 made the following comments about teaching and relationships at school:
- Teachers are wholehearted in their desire for pupils to achieve well. Relationships between teachers and pupils are constructive and are built on trust and mutual respect. This enables pupils to have the confidence to ask for help and support when they are stuck or unsure.
- Pupils conduct themselves in an orderly manner. They are welcoming, self-assured and act in a polite and respectful way. Lunchtimes are calm, with groups of pupils engaged in friendly conversation.
- The majority of pupils display a positive attitude towards their learning. They are keen to succeed and value the efforts made by their teachers in supporting them in lessons.
We are a school that have a desire and understanding of how to succeed and provide an environment that is stimulating to students and staff alike.
