Studio West is an exciting studio school, which opened in September 2014. As part of Northern Leaders Trust, Studio West cater for around 550 students aged between 11 and 19 with student numbers increasing year on year. We are expected to reach 650 at full capacity. Rated “Good” by Ofsted, Studio West offers students an innovative and bespoke curriculum with an emphasis on employability and life skills. We have close working relationships with our business partners and our mission is to make sure that every student who leaves Studio West, does so with a university place, an apprenticeship or employment.

The ethos of Studio West is enshrined in ‘Learning that connects.’ The principle that learning must constantly connect school with the real world is at the very core of everything we do.

We use the full range of work-related learning and career progression alongside academic prowess to prepare students for university, an apprenticeship, further training and employment - tailored to the needs of the individual.

Graded as ‘Good’ by Ofsted in early 2019, we know the key to our success is having a strong team committed to the ethos of the school with the skills, dedication and passion to motivate and instil high expectations in every student to achieve their potential.

The post holder will lead a newly implemented broad and balanced Computing and Media curriculum that inspires children to appreciate the subject and its application.

The role requires an outstanding and confident classroom practitioner of IT who is able to demonstrate the very highest standards of teaching.

If you feel you have the experience, skills and attributes to succeed as part of our team, we want to hear from you.

In return we offer:


<li>Salary sacrifice schemes such as childcare vouchers and cycle to work.</li>
