Teacher of Food Technology - St James School

The Ted Wragg Multi Academy Trust is a values driven, rapidly growing 2 – 18 Trust with a relentless focus on transforming lives through learning by delivering outstanding outcomes for every student, regardless of background. Our priority is to ensure that our pupils, regardless of social-economical background can learn, thrive and be successful. With a reputation for highly successful school improvement in very challenging circumstances, we are passionate about driving up standards and raising the aspirations of all our students.

St James is looking to appoint an excellent Teacher of Food Technology on 0.8 FTE from 25th April 2022 on a temporary basis until April 2023 to cover maternity leave.  From September 2022 the hours could be negotiable for the right candidate.  The successful candidates will be passionate about their subject and an excellent classroom practitioner who delivers innovative, engaging and challenging lessons that ensure all students achieve their best.

We are an 11-16 mixed comprehensive school of 980 students situated in the East of Exeter on a relatively new, purpose-built site which offers excellent facilities for all our departments.  We are an innovative and aspirational school that is driven by the highest of expectations in all that we do. We offer a rich and personalised learning environment for all of our students and work hard together to ensure everyone succeeds on a pastoral, extracurricular and academic basis.

We have a lovely staff body here at St James who are committed and passionate about all that they do. We work closely with other schools in the Ted Wragg Multi Academy Trust and are currently developing an aligned curriculum that will allow for shared resources and expertise. We offer our staff weekly coaching sessions, bespoke CPD, in-house career progression opportunities and regular staff-wellbeing events.

At St James, our work is underpinned by the following four pillars:

  • Having uncompromising high standards for all
  • Keeping the arts at the heart of the school
  • Valuing being outward facing
  • Practising kindness

If you share these values, are driven and are prepared to go that extra mile to support our students, then we would welcome your application.

We would welcome applications from NQTs and RQTs.  We provide a personalised and comprehensive programme of support to our NQTs which progresses into year two to ensure RQTs continue to receive guidance and coaching.
