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

At Kingsway Park High School we strive to transform students’ lives. Through our relationships, we endeavour to instil both resilience and an intrinsic motivation to become confident, creative and highly skilled students, capable of meeting tomorrow’s challenges head on. We strive to establish a culture rooted in achievement and progress that encourages our students to grow academically, personally and socially; equipping them with the values of equality, fairness and openness. We pride ourselves on our relentless drive to achieve outstanding, high quality teaching that provides a safe, supportive and encouraging environment for all our students to be able to realise their academic potential in pursuit of educational excellence.

We are looking to appoint a Teacher of Computer Science 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. Computer Science 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 Computer Science, Business studies and ICT. 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 delivery of quality lessons, production of engaging resources and extensive use of their own subject knowledge. This is an exciting time to contribute to the computing curriculum and to align the subject curriculum intent with the school’s new mission statement- ‘We Cooperate, We Pioneer, We Belong.’

The Computer Science 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 Computer Science, ICT and Business into the curriculum offer. The successful candidate will be supported by their curriculum leader and an established member of SLT and will work alongside experienced and motivated staff.  The ideal candidate would engage students both in lessons and within extra-curricular clubs to equip them with the knowledge and passion to meet the needs of a future which will have a heavy reliance on technology and increasing use of artificial intelligence. This is an exciting opportunity for someone who is vibrant, passionate and pioneering to really help create the next generation of Computer Scientists.
