Monkton is seeking to appoint a full time teacher of Computer Science from September 2021. As the
successful candidate, you are dynamic and ambitious, and are seeking to develop in a school which grows
fruitful people through innovation and a commitment to professional growth, and which prioritises
relationships over systems.
You share our vision for fostering a love of lifelong learning, both for students and teachers. You are
passionate about delivering an excellent holistic education and have a commitment to individuals, seeing
this as the basis for students to flourish. You see education as lighting fires rather than filling pails as well as
the vital part that a proactive pastoral approach plays in a student’s development.
In addition to teaching an academic timetable, all staff at Monkton are involved with the wider life of a busy
boarding-ethos school. Co-curricular activities go far beyond those clubs and societies which are closely
connected with a teacher’s academic subject and all staff have a rich pastoral role with both day and
boarding pupils. As such, a full time teacher will coach or support two terms of sport, or equivalent - eg CCF,
drama, community service - have a tutor group, supervise a 2-hour evening work period once a week in a
boarding house, and run a co-curricular activity. Applicants should make clear in their application how they
would see themselves contributing to school life in these wider ways; applications which focus solely on
classroom practice are likely to be less successful.
The role would suit an NQT or someone seeking to pursue a PGCE in school (SCITT - see recruitment pack attaced). The salary
offered is in accordance with the Monkton Combe Teaching Staff Salary Scale.
Monkton Combe School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.We particularly welcome applications from under represented groups including ethnicity, gender, transgender, age, disability, sexual orientation or religion.
