Christ Church Academy is a Middle School for children aged 9 to 13 which has expanded over recent years because of its overwhelming popularity. As a Church of England Academy, Christian values such as trust, friendship and thankfulness help our children learn and grow in an atmosphere of support and acceptance. Our latest Ofsted inspection in February 2017 rated the Academy as ‘good’.
As a result of the current post holder taking retirement, we wish to appoint from September 2017 a forward thinking and experienced teacher to lead our Design and Technology Department.
Design and Technology classes are taught in ability groups and the successful candidate will have responsibility for raising the standards of pupil attainment and achievement alongside monitoring and supporting pupil progress. The department is well resourced and benefits from 2 specialist D&T rooms; Resistant Materials and Food and Textiles.
We want a visionary person who is able to develop an inspirational and imaginative curriculum to engage and excite pupils of all abilities. He/she should have a real team ethic and a strong sense of humour!
In addition, as the person accountable for leading, managing and further developing Design and Technology provision across the Academy, the post holder would be expected to develop and broaden STEM opportunities.
The normal place of work would be Christ Church Academy. This Academy is part of ‘The Key Educational Trust’ and the Trust reserves the right to deploy the successful candidate to work at any other Academy within the Trust.
We can offer:
This is an excellent opportunity for a highly motivated, ambitious and hard working person to develop their career in a forward thinking school with excellent standards of achievement and care.
Altertatively, the above documents are available from the Academy upon request (SAE please).
Visits to the Academy are warmly welcomed. To arrange a visit please contact: Miss W Fenton, PA to the Principal on 01785 334900.
