Are you passionate about educating young people about Materials?  If so, why not join our highly and successful Technology Department?  The Governors of Pershore High School wish to appoint an engaging and enthusiastic teacher of Materials Technology to cover a maternity leave for one year starting as soon as possible; the key vision for the Technology Department is to make Materials Technology a destination our students are excited and eager to attend. Our focus is to develop the KS4 and KS5 provision within Materials Technology and it is important that the successful candidate will be invested in and motivated by the opportunity to support the development of the curriculum in order to achieve this vision. It would be beneficial for the successful candidate to have an interest in broadening their professional development to include the delivery of A-Level Product Design.  The Product Design course is popular and offers the opportunity for the successful candidate to expand their teaching practices.

The successful candidate will join the school at a very exciting time in its development as we took on our first cohort of 90 Year 7 students in September 2021 within Avonreach Academy Trust.

We currently have 1206 students on roll in Years 7-13 of which 161 are on the SEND Register, 35 of whom have EHCPs.  This includes 15 students who are part of our Mainstream Autism Base (MAB).  In addition, 16% of students are in receipt of the Pupil Premium Grant.  The school was rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted at their last visit in September 2017 and we have outstanding pastoral provision.  Our highly successful school is steadily growing and student numbers are predicted to rise further in the next few years.  We have just been identified as one of only 50 schools in the first tranche of the government’s schools rebuilding programme.

Pershore High School is a great place to work; our students are friendly and behave well, visitors to the school frequently comment on the calm and purposeful atmosphere that pervades our school.

Pershore High School takes safeguarding children very seriously and the successful applicant will be required to undertake an Enhanced Disclosure via the DBS. All applications must be made on the PHS application form - NO CVs please.
