Fixed term until July 2023
The Media Studies team have had remarkable success in building up the popularity and impact of their courses over the last fifteen years. It is now standard for there to be three to four GCSE classes at a time, and two classes in each Y12 cohort for A-Level Media. Media continually positively adds to the progress 8 and ALPS score for the school. We teach the AQA syllabus at GCSE and A-Level. We are known for building strong pupil and parents relationships and teaching our students to take risks and be critical thinkers.
You will be working with at one specialist Head of Department and an ability to teach Media A Level and practical work is desirable.
Everyone we recruit has a strong sense of moral purpose and is highly reflective. It makes for an exciting community of professionals. Over the last 18 months we have moved to a model that is heavily coaching based at all levels. We are setting aside even more time in the coming year for teachers to collaborate and work closely together to develop their curricula and their understanding of consistent, evidence-based approaches to ensuring children truly learn.
For all our staff at Kingsmead we offer:
- A professional and friendly working environment.
- An ambitious school which also cares about staff wellbeing and a work life balance.
- Tech Scheme.
- Opportunities for career development, with a dedication to provide CPD.
- Well-behaved children who love their learning and make us proud to be at Kingsmead.
- Dedicated Trustees, staff, children and parents who work hard to continue to develop our school.
