Required from 1 September 2020

We wish to appoint a highly motivated and reflective teacher of cooking and nutrition to bring a high level of subject expertise and help to improve the quality of teaching in this rapidly improving school. A new Headteacher took up post in 2017, and we have assembled an excellent group of senior leaders and teachers who are having a significant impact on the quality of teaching and outcomes. With a new ethos and uniform in place, excellent behaviour and an aspirational culture, we want to achieve more. We received a very positive Ofsted inspection in May 2018, where our leadership & management, 6th form, and students’ personal development, behaviour and welfare, were all graded “Good”. Our A Level progress figures in 2018 were the best in Durham, and we have made significant improvements to our curriculum and teaching, and to reducing teacher workload.

Framwellgate School Durham is a rapidly growing 11-18 non-selective secondary school and Single Academy Trust. The school roll has increased by 25% in two years and by September 2020 we will be oversubscribed with more than 1300 students on roll.

The successful candidate will possess subject expertise alongside energy and enthusiasm. They will believe that every young person deserves the very best education. A commitment to raising achievement, and a willingness to learn, train and develop as a teacher are all essential. We can offer you an environment where student behaviour is excellent, prior attainment levels are amongst the highest in the North-East, and our students and staff are a pleasure to work with. With over 20 new teachers, including a number of NQTs appointed over the last two years, we have quickly become a vibrant and exciting school in which to develop your career.
