We are delighted to be recruiting a talented and enthusiastic Teacher of Business with effect from September 2019 or January 2020. It is expected that the appointee will be able to teach Business at GCSE and A Level, with a willingness to teach Level 3 BTEC (previous experience of delivering Level 3 BTEC would be advantageous and A Level Economics teaching would be available for individuals with suitable expertise)
This is an exciting opportunity to join a thriving department which is embracing new developments in the subject and the use of technology to support learning.
The new Teacher of Business and / or Economics will be expected to bring a dynamic and creative teaching style to the department, and contribute to the department’s co-curricular offering.
THE ECONOMICS AND BUSINESS DEPARTMENT
Economics and Business have previously operated as separate departments, but were merged into one department under a newly appointed Head of Department from September 2017. The department contains 5 teachers with a range of experiences of teaching both Business and Economics. The department displays engaging and interactive teaching which has embraced the introduction of mobile learning, including an aim to move to a paperless department through the use of digital feedback.
Business is a large and thriving subject that has been taught at the school for many years. Pupil numbers remain consistently healthy with over 100 pupils taking the subject for GCSE in Years 10 and 11, and 50 in the Sixth Form. The department follows the Edexcel specification at both GCSE and A Level. The department launched a Level 3 BTEC
The school is an HMC co-educational boarding and day school for approximately 750 pupils aged 11-18. The School occupies a magnificent 200 acre site on the East coast (Suffolk).
The School selects pupils from a reasonably broad ability range and for this reason we focus on achieving a positive value added for all our pupils. Applications for places are extremely healthy and this year our pupil numbers are the highest on record.
The school aims to provide academic excellence with an outstanding range of cultural and sporting opportunities. This is strongly backed up by first-class pastoral care and a commitment to leadership, service and spiritual awareness. We have an outstanding campus which provides a safe and secure environment. We have a talented and dedicated staff who believe in maximising each child's potential, fuelling their aspirations, firing their imagination and encouraging independence of thought. We seek to provide pupils with the skills and confidence to navigate their own lives and to think about where they will be at 25.
Recently the School undertook the development of the internal sporting facilities including a new strength and conditioning room, a fitness suite, dance and martial arts studio and the addition of a climbing wall in a refurbished sports hall. Further development of the School estate and the provision of top quality facilities for the education of our pupils remains a priority. The School has embarked upon a rolling programme of classroom refurbishment and, thanks to the generosity of our trustees, Greenwich Hospital, a £400,000 Wi-Fi programme has facilitated wireless internet access across the whole school campus since 2013. All members of the teaching staff and all pupils have iPads as part of the School’s mobile learning initiative.
