This exciting opportunity has arisen to join our team, as our school continues to grow and develop, resulting in a continued high level of success in our outcomes for pupils. St. Michael’s is one of the UK’s leading schools, securing the highest GCSE results in Wales in 2017 as well as being 30th for A-Level in the UK in The Times 2018 (co-ed independent) rankings along with being the Sunday Times’ Welsh Independent School of the Year 2019. This is down to our hard working staff who go above and beyond in everything that they do and our highly motivated pupils, whose conduct and enthusiasm supports them to achieve great things.
We are seeking to appoint a well-qualified, experienced, enthusiastic and innovative computer scientist who will be expected to teach all school years from Year 7 through to Year 13 leading a strong, highly successful department. Pupils follow the WJEC syllabus at both GCSE and A level.
You will be an energetic and self-motivated teacher with sound organisational and administrative skills. Somebody who thrives on enabling each and every young person to unlock their true potential, you will take particular concern for providing the conditions in which pupils exceed expectations. You will wholeheartedly support our aims as an independent day and boarding school, where many parents make significant financial sacrifices to fund their children’s education. If you join us, you will benefit from smaller class sizes, opportunities for professional development and the chance to be part of a friendly and encouraging staff team.
