Teacher of Design and Technology
Required for April 2022
This position is an excellent opportunity for an outstanding and inspirational Design and Technology teacher to
join our exceptional team. The post will involve teaching to Key Stages 3, Key Stages 4 and possibly 5.
This post would ideally suit a colleague who is looking for a new challenge and wishes to work with highly
motivated, extremely engaged, enthusiastic and able learners. If you are keen to develop further as a
practitioner and wish to extend your repertoire of teaching and learning strategies then Weald of Kent would
be a perfect fit for you. In addition to the opportunities to develop your practice within the classroom, the school
offers an extensive range of professional development support including a bespoke package for those interested
in working towards their next career step.
Weald of Kent is a selective Girls' Grammar School for 11-18 year olds with a roll of approximately 1900 students including our co-educational Sixth Form. The school is one of the highest performing schools in the country. We aspire to excel at everything we do. Owing to our continued success we are thrilled to have been given permission by the Secretary of State to expand and mirror what we deliver at our Tonbridge campus in a campus at Sevenoaks, which opened in September 2017. In addition to the exciting new facilities, we have also invested in our Tonbridge campus which now has a state of the art Sports Hall and university style Sixth Form Study Centre and a new science block has been built this year. Both campuses are situated in beautiful rural settings with far reaching views across the Garden of England with excellent transport links.
In the Design and Technology team there is a supportive and collaborative ethos within the department and we
are always open to new ideas. We regularly reflect on our delivery to ensure our students gain the best
experience and aim to enthuse creative problem solving. Weald of Kent students are driven, inquisitive and
committed to learning. Our results at both GCSE and A Level are excellent and we frequently outperform other
schools in our specialist areas. Food and Nutrition has achieved exceptional results over a number of years and
is a popular subject at Key Stage 4.
