You are a dynamic teacher and leader with an enthusiasm for Computer Science which you impart to staff and students alike. What’s more, you are committed to delivering an exceptional learning experience for every one of your pupils. So join the friendly and welcoming team here at Woldingham School – and enjoy all the support you need to achieve your professional goals.
Our girls’ interest in this key subject speaks for itself and each year they go on to study a wide range of STEM subjects in Higher Education. We provide an outstanding range of facilities including two well-equipped dedicated computer suites and access to an impressive array of additional resources, including digital cameras, video recording facilities and a state of the art music technology centre.
The ability to teach Computer Science across Key Stage 3 and 4 is essential (and up to A Level is desirable), combined with first-rate organisational, team working and ICT skills. In September 2018, we introduced A Level Computer Science alongside IGCSE and our KS3 courses.
Close to London, yet in an outstandingly beautiful rural setting, Woldingham is a happy and successful Catholic boarding and day school for girls aged 11 to 18. With a strong community and caring culture we are building on a proud heritage that stretches back 175 years. We are now driving an exciting future that is underpinned by fresh ideas, an innovative spirit and state-of-the-art facilities.

Professional development and staff welfare
Our professional team of staff is Woldingham’s greatest asset, and we want to ensure that everyone is supported to work in an effective, enjoyable and fulfilling way. Staff Development is a high priority, with induction and mentoring programmes for Newly Qualified Teachers and new colleagues, plus an annual cycle of Personal Professional Development planning for all colleagues and a new Leadership Programme in development for September 2021.
Staff are welcome to use our range of outstanding facilities including the gym, squash and tennis courts and the swimming pool. Our Staffroom Committee organises regular social events, and a range of wellbeing initiatives support staff in their working life.
