Overview

Teacher of Computer Science

We are looking for an enthusiastic and engaging teacher of ICT from September 2019. The successful candidate will work alongside our lead teacher of ICT to deliver Computer Science to KS3, 4 and 5 and BTEC IT at Levels 2 and 3.

This is an exciting time in the development of Computer Science teaching and we are looking for someone who is willing to embrace new initiatives and take our students’ technology learning to another level. Computer Science and BTEC IT have grown in popularity over the last few years and we are expanding our team as a result. You will appreciate the importance of Information Communications Technology applications and the need for all our students to be conversant and confident with their use. However, you will also have the knowledge and ability to inspire those who have an academic interest in Computer Science and the knowledge of appropriate GCSE and A Level examination specifications to support this.

Our school motto is ‘Life Long Love of Learning’ and to that end we follow the simple view that pupils who enjoy the subject will engage in it, grow in confidence and will have the opportunity to excel. If you feel that you can play a strong and supportive role, both through the curriculum and also the many extra-curricular activities we offer we would be delighted to hear from you.

NQTs are very welcome to apply and we would also consider part time applications.

The School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. Applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service.

The School encompasses traditional values combined with a forward approach to the education of young people, and it is proud of the family ethos and community it engenders. First established in 1512, Lewes Old Grammar School combines high educational standards and small classes in a caring, well- mannered environment together with economic fee levels.

Here we educate children from the age of 11, (Year 7), until 18 years of age, (Sixth Form), and always feature well in the Sussex GCSE and A Level league tables. We have an ambitious development plan for the school’s facilities over the next five years.
