The Kimberley School is an exciting, oversubscribed and vibrant school with a very successful, high-achieving, sixth form. The school enjoys superb facilities and, under new leadership and as part of the East Midlands Education Trust, has a very bright future. We aim to ensure that students achieve outstanding academic exam results and that they have access to a vast range of exciting opportunities outside of the classroom that help prepare them for a successful adult life.

We are determined to take every possible step to ensure that Computer Science is a strong and successful part of our curriculum. In recent years we have adjusted our Key Stage 3 curriculum so that students have the opportunity to develop Computer Science skills and knowledge. GCSE Computer Science is a popular course in KS4 with two groups in Year 10 and one in Year 11. Our long-term aim is to be able to offer A-Level Computer Science in our sixth form. You will be part of the Business and IT Faculty and you will be working with a team of professionals who have an excellent track record of success and focus relentlessly on ensuring that students enjoy learning and make outstanding progress. As part of East Midlands Education Trust you will also be a part of a network of Computer Science teachers across the secondary schools in the Trust. This will be an opportunity for you to learn from the very best and prepare you for the next stage of your career.

If your experience is predominantly based on teaching IT and you are looking to develop your career into teaching Computer Science, then this may still be the job for you. We are determined to make this succeed and we will work with you to identify and invest in the professional development that you will need to teach Computer Science. There may be the possibility of a recruitment and retention allowance for an experienced candidate with a track record of success.

The Kimberley School is part of The East Midlands Education Trust which includes The West Bridgford School, Joseph Whittaker School, The South Wolds Academy and Sixth Form, The Ripley Academy and the John Flamsteed School.
