  • One hour a week of subject CPD timetabled into the College day as part of your timetabled allocation, avoiding weekly twilight sessions
  • A minimum of one paid ‘family day’ per year to use as you choose, with the possibility of term time leave by negotiation, and the chance to work from home by agreement
  • £1000 bursary for personal CPD, including funding for a Masters qualification (or equivalent)
  • A genuine commitment to wellbeing, with a strong track record in supporting positive mental health and high levels of staff retention and promotion (twice awarded the Carnegie Gold Medal)
  • Subsidised access to our on-site Sports Centre and swimming pool, available for use throughout the day, as well as regular staff social events, discounted food and free coffee/tea

Further details about the role

IVC has achieved consistently excellent outcomes for the last seven years. With a truly comprehensive intake, student progress is regularly in the top 5% of all non-selective schools in the country. We are fiercely proud of our inclusive ethos, and in championing an environment in which every student is welcomed and valued, and accommodate nearly 100 students with EHCPs, including many with highly complex needs. Student attainment is exceptionally high, with 20% of all grades at Grade 9 and 50% at 7-9 (or equivalent) in 2022. We are also committed to the wider education of our students, with a timetabled enrichment programme for all ages as a core part of our curriculum, as well as over forty hours per week of clubs and activities. We run a fantastic range of overseas trips as far afield as Peru, India, Japan and Botswana, as well as Science trips to Geneva and Iceland.

Science outcomes are consistently in the top 2% nationally for both attainment and progress. In the first years of the reformed GCSEs, the Science results have been exceptional; over 50% of our very large cohort of Triple Scientists achieved Grade 9s and over 90% achieved at least a Grade 7. Combined Science outcomes are also incredibly strong, with more than 80% of students achieving at least 4-4 and significant numbers achieving Grades 7-9. This post also offers the opportunity to teach at IB level, where Sciences are a core part of the Diploma Programme for all students, and where outcomes are well in excess of the national and international averages. You will also be joining us at an incredibly exciting time, as we embed the IB Middle Years Programme at Key Stage 3, and become one of the first state schools in the UK to offer three IB programmes.
