Job description

Required for September 2023

We are looking for a full-time Teacher of Computer Science to join a highly successful department at UCS. The chosen candidate will join a thriving and supportive Computer Science Department and will be passionate about teaching and learning across the age and ability ranges, including A Level. The department comprises three teachers, including the Head of Computer Science.

Outstanding opportunity

UCS is a major London day school and we expect to appoint a teacher who combines a strong intellect with an imaginative and flexible approach to classroom teaching; who is wise and sensitive in their planning of lessons, and rigorous and friendly in their delivery. The ability to also teach Mathematics would be preferable.

Computer Science is a popular Year 9 and GCSE option, with around 170 pupils in this age category. At A Level, it is growing too, and currently there are two Computer Science sets each in Year 12 and Year 13.

This is an outstanding opportunity to teach in a congenial and stimulating setting. It should, therefore, be attractive to an ECT (UCS offers full statutory induction) or to a serving teacher seeking wider experience. We welcome equally applications from teachers in the maintained sector and from the independent sector, as well as from those without a formal teaching qualification.

UCS is a leading academic school with a distinctive ethos and an enviable reputation for pastoral work, as well as for Sport, Music, Drama and other co-curricular activities.

Please click apply now to download the application form and send a completed copy to [email protected]. The closing date for applications is 12pm on Thursday 17th November 2022.

Please note that we reserve the right to interview candidates before the stated closing date; we would therefore welcome early applications. UCS is fully committed to the safeguarding of children, so all applicants must be prepared to undergo child protection screening.
