Curriculum Leader of ICT/Computing

Required ASAP

The post will be paid on the Schools Main Teacher Pay Scale MPS/UPS plus TLR2B


Kingsway Park High School was established in 2010 and joined the Altus Education Partnership in February 2022. We are now a very popular oversubscribed school (1350 students in years 7-11 and 190 staff) located in central Rochdale. We are very proud of the high-quality facilities, resources, and environment that we provide for both staff and students.

We are looking to appoint an experienced teacher of Computing/ ICT who is looking for a new challenge and is willing to join an innovative and forward-thinking department. The ideal candidate must have a real passion for their subject and be equipped with the skills to maximise outcomes for students at both Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. ICT is currently taught once a week at Kingsway Park High School at Key Stage 3 and by Year 9 offers three distinct pathways at GCSE including ICT, Computer Science and Business studies. All three of these options are becoming increasingly popular with our students and we are looking for someone with the drive and passion to continue to increase the subject popularity through the mapping, sequencing and execution of a new KS3 curriculum model. This is an exciting time to remap the ICT curriculum and to align the subject curriculum intent with the school’s new mission statement- ‘We Cooperate, We Pioneer, We Belong.’ The new Curriculum leader will also take responsibility for the statutory requirements of ICT and will be expected to help promote aspects of the RSE curriculum linked to online safety whole school through whole school assemblies, activities and possible drop-down days.

The ICT department at Kingsway Park High School is a supportive department that is well resourced with 4 IT suites.  There is a work area for staff within the department which allows the team to work cohesively to support and link ICT, Computing and Business into the curriculum offer. The new Curriculum Leader of ICT and Computing will be supported by an established member of SLT and will work alongside experienced and motivated staff.  Finally, this is a really exciting opportunity for someone who is vibrant, passionate and pioneering to really help the ICT/ Computing department excel.
