To commence in September 2021
This position is permanent
We are a co-educational, independent school based in South West London. For September 2021, we are looking to appoint a well-qualified Teacher into our vibrant and highly successful Computer Science team. The applicants will be able to teach to GCSE and there is an opportunity to teach up to A level. NQTs are welcome to apply.
We recognise the importance of digital skills such as programming. Students are given the opportunity to learn basic coding skills, making the transition from visual languages such as Scratch (which many have used at primary school) onto text-based languages such as Python. Our new KS3 curriculum is designed to develop these skills through engaging, project-based learning, utilising cutting-edge educational resources such as Raspberry Pi Laptops (Pitops), Microbits and Lego Mindstorms EV3. In this way, students are challenged to create and problem solve as well as learning core coding skills.
Part of our vision for our learners is that we encourage students “to innovate and not to replicate”. We believe that challenging our students to use STEAM skills across traditional subject boundaries allows this innovation to flourish. Our chosen activities our designed to encourage students to take knowledge from subjects such as circuits in science and CAD design packages in DT and apply them to physical computing projects.
Every member of staff here has the opportunity and expectation to involve themselves in the co-curricular life of the school and we particularly welcome applicants who might be able to support any of the following activities Engineering Club, CCF, Community Service or those who are prepared to assist the coaching of Hockey, Rowing, Cricket or Football.
Staff are remunerated through our salary scale, which tracks significantly above the national scale for teachers.
