Act wisely and make the most of every opportunity
Rawlins is a good school with an outstanding sixth form
Teacher of Computer Science (with Any Other Subject)
(Any other subjects considered, but Business Studies, Economics or PSHE advantageous)
From: 25 April 2022 or 26 August 2022
Rawlins Academy is seeking to appoint an innovative and enthusiastic Teacher of Computer Science (with another subject) to join our fantastic team and flourishing Academy. Our ideal candidate will have both a love for the subject and a passion for teaching so that our pupils thrive.
This is an excellent opportunity to join one of Leicestershire’s largest schools with currently over 1500 on roll including more than 300 in the Sixth Form. We are an inclusive school having an ASD and a Moderate Learning Difficulties specialist unit on site alongside our school’s SEND support base and Success Centre. Pupils who attend these units are an integrated part of our school community and taught within the school by mainstream staff.
The successful individual would be working in our excellent IT Department, as well as the team from their other subject. Due to the compassionate nature of our brilliant pupils/students, our school has a large number of experienced and established staff, alongside a few more recently qualified staff, including a number of outstanding individuals who regularly share their expertise across the whole school. All the departments work collaboratively and so the successful applicant will share and receive best practice approaches and resources, contribute to the team ethos and the continual drive for improvement. With an expanding and increasingly popular Computing curriculum and the teams work to reflect internally upon best practice and the expanding scope of IT to improve lives in society, there is a growing improvement in outcomes and recruitment at GCSE to join our outstanding results at A Level Computer Science. Beyond the classroom staff participate fully within the schools program of personalised staff CPD and development, as well as supporting and offering further opportunities to pupils across our extensive extra-curricular programmes.
There is a strong sense of community in the school, the village of Quorn and the surrounding areas with a committed parent support base. Teamwork and making the most of every opportunity is a key feature of school life.
We aim to inspire our pupils to find their talents and their passions through a broad and balanced curriculum; to be curious about learning; to relish a challenge and to have both confidence and resilience. Applications are therefore welcomed from well-qualified, inspiring, flexible, passionate and highly motivated individuals who are keen to work with remarkable young people providing an exceptional education for all. NQT and RQT applicants will be supported through our internal development programme and links with external Training providers.
Our core purpose is summed up in our vision:
Developing Trust | Inspiring Hope | Building Success | Shaping the Future
Through our values: Compassion, Wisdom and Endurance
And via our motto: Act wisely and make the most of every opportunity
We do hope you will take the time to look at our website to find out more about us and apply. This is an extremely rewarding place to work, and we look forward to meeting you in the near future.
