Job Description

Our client school in Forest Hill urgently requires a teacher of Computer Science for an immediate start. The vacancy has arisen due to the current teacher retiring after 12 years of service at the school.

The school was recently rated 'Outstanding' by OFSTED. Students achieve the very best academic success across both GCSE and A-Level. The school is a 5 minute walk from the nearest underground station.

Rather than encountering behaviour management issues as is often the case with London secondary schools this school "is all about the teaching and learning" (Head Teacher, 2018)

The Head Teacher is looking to appoint a practitioner with a proved track record delivering the Computer Science/ ICT syllabus at GCSE but particularly at AS and A2 level.

The advantage to working in this setting for a teacher include

*Small class sizes of highly motivated and equally capable students
*Outstanding resources to choose from in order to offer exciting and though-provoking classes
*Subject teachers have no pastoral responsibilities and can also stay off-site when off the teaching timetable
*A highly capable administrative team to support teachers in all aspects of their preparation.
*The opportunity to continue at the school from September 2018 in a permanent capacity
*A salary structure which is negotiable rather than in-line with the national payscale for teachers. Ability and results are therefore acknowledged financially.

The school expects:

*First-class teaching and professionalism
*Results are a huge "must" given the school fees that parents from around the world are paying

We urge all suitable candidates to contact Spencer or Ken at the earliest opportunity. / 0207 272 70 70

Due to the immediate nature of the vacancy all candidates will need meet the school's and our agency compliance standards (Updated DBS will therefore be essential)

* You must have the legal right to work in the UK
* You must hold QTS or a UK recognised equivalent teaching qualification
* This position is subject to an Enhanced DBS Disclosure, Overseas Police Clearances (if applicable) and professional reference checks

It is A* Star Teachers' policy, as a matter of courtesy, to respond to all applications within three working days. However, due to the volume of applications, we are sometimes unable to respond to each applicant individually. If we have not contacted you within three working days, your application has been unsuccessful and your details have not been retained. Please apply for any other position that you may feel suitable for in the future.
