Are you up for the challenge of working in one of the top 4% of schools nationally for progress?
If so, we want you!

We seek to appoint a passionate, dedicated and highly motivated Teacher or Instructor of Dance at Baysgarth School with the skills and experience to deliver successful outcomes both at KS3 and in BTEC Performing Arts (Dance) at KS4. Under our inspirational Dance Teacher, the subject has risen quickly in popularity and has recruited strongly to GCSE, where our first cohort will be beginning their course in September. A brand new, purpose-built Dance Studio will be completed over the summer so the successful candidate will have outstanding facilities in which to teach. We need someone to maintain the reputation of this subject whilst our teacher is on maternity leave. It is possible to combine this role with others available in school such as a Learning Supervisor, Learning Support Assistant or 1:1 tutor to make this post full-time for the duration of the maternity leave.

In November 2016, we moved into our brand-new state-of-the-art campus, which comprises Baysgarth School, Headway Alternative Provision, and Baysgarth Sports Village. The school has risen quickly to become one of the top performing schools in the region, achieving top 5% outcomes for CVA Progress 8 for three years running and the highest four-year Progress 8 average of all the local schools. We are oversubscribed in Year 7 every year which reflects the first-class facilities we have on site as well as our fantastic students and staff who make the school a great place to learn. We pride ourselves on achieving outstanding outcomes in a school with an inclusive ethos that has superb pastoral care and a strong commitment to staff mental health and work-life balance.

Ofsted visited Baysgarth in October 2017 and concluded that we are a Good school which ‘has gone from strength to strength’ and is making ‘good progress on the journey to outstanding’. In terms of student achievement, Ofsted reported that ‘Overall progress was in the top 10% nationally … [and] current pupils are making strong progress in all year groups.’ The DfE have concluded that ‘there is no better performing similar school within 75 miles of Baysgarth’ and it is our mission to recruit the most talented staff to continue this progress.

The Head Teacher has many years’ experience of transforming outcomes in a number of secondary schools and at the heart of his vision is creating and developing close-knit teams, focused on collaboration, mutual support and risk-taking. The successful candidate will need to demonstrate their commitment to the core principles and values of ambition, fairness, consistency, rigour and putting students first.

The following qualifications and experience are essential:

  • enjoys working with young people and has the flair, energy and ability to bring the best out of them;
  • has the ability, vision, drive and skills to deliver outstanding outcomes at all key stages;
  • is, or has the potential to be, an outstanding teacher.

Baysgarth School is currently an 11-16 comprehensive with approximately 900 pupils on roll. The successful candidate will be expected to demonstrate pride, passion and positivity and a desire to ensure the school has the highest possible reputation in the local community and beyond.

Baysgarth School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be required to apply for enhanced disclosure from the DBS.
