Teacher of Psychology and/or Health and Social Care

Full or Part Time
Required to start September 2019

We welcome applications from experienced and newly qualified teachers.

Thurston Community College is a thriving mixed comprehensive school which boasts a strong sense of community, a supportive, caring ethos and a positive, friendly atmosphere.

Thurston Community College offers an exciting, dynamic learning environment, where students display a positive attitude to learning and make good progress. 

The behaviour of pupils is good. Pupils enjoy school and say that they feel well supported. Most groups of pupils, including the most able and those who are disadvantaged, now make strong progress from their starting points.  (Ofsted March 2018). 

Staff work collaboratively, share a common sense of purpose and are relentless in
the pursuit of outcomes of the highest quality for every student.

Staff morale is high and most staff are positive about the leadership and management of the school. This is because leaders have provided them with high quality training and supported their development well at all levels. Newly qualified and trainee teachers are passionate advocates of the school and its pupils. School leaders support them well and subject leaders develop their teaching skills through regular mentoring and effective support.  (Ofsted March 2018)

We are seeking to appoint an inspiring, enthusiastic and vibrant Teacher of
Psychology and/or Health and Social Care, to join our well established team of
excellent practitioners within the Social Sciences Department.

The successful applicant will be required to teach Psychology at GCSE and/or Advanced Level and/or Level 3 Health and Social Care Single and Double Award courses.  The proportion of each subject and the level to which the successful applicant would be required to teach psychology are both open to negotiation at interview.

Thurston Community College enjoys a rural location with free parking and
convenient transport links to Cambridge, Ipswich and London. If you are excited by this post, its challenges and opportunities; if you relish the prospect of joining our team of outstanding staff; please visit our website for further details and an
application form.   We very much look forward to hearing from you. 

The deadline for applications is noon on Monday 1 April 2019.
