Blackfen School is a progressive and vibrant learning community that focuses on raising the aspirations and releasing the potential of every young person in our care. In 2019, 60% of students in year 11 achieved five or more GCSE 9-4 grades, including at least a 4 in English and a 4 in Mathematics. Our Progress 8 score was 0.018. At A level in 2019, 96% of the grades were A*-E with 30% at A*-B and 63% at A*-C. Similarly high levels were achieved in Level 3 BTEC qualifications.

Our Governors wish to appoint an ambitious, talented, innovative teacher who is committed to raising attainment and who has the capacity to make a real contribution to the work of a supportive and continually improving school. Ambition for excellence, a passion for student achievement and the desire to develop professional skills within a supportive learning community will characterise applications for this post.

The candidate must be able to deliver GCSE Computer Science as the main responsibility of this role. Additionally, Key Stage 3 Computing/ICT and Key Stage 4 Cambridge National ICT courses will also need to be taught.  The experience of teaching Level 3 BTEC ICT at Key Stage 5 would be helpful.

The post would suit either an NQT or more experienced teacher.

Visits to the school are warmly welcomed.

As an “Investor in People”, the school provides exceptional opportunities for professional development, with an induction programme and strong support. 

The successful candidate will be required to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service Check.
