Achievement for All

Teacher of Design and Technology (Food Specialist) - Permanent​​​​​​​

The King’s School with 1120 students is an outstanding 11-18 comprehensive school with ambitious students, supportive parents and excellent facilities.  We have a strong reputation for success across the curriculum and an extra-curricular programme which is valued highly by the whole school community. A commitment to the philosophy of ‘Achievement for All’ and a desire to work in an exciting, dynamic, creative and supportive way are essential for all staff at The King’s School.

For January 2023 we are looking to appoint a teacher who is creative, dynamic, and able to communicate their passion for D&T: Food to the whole ability range.  It is important that the successful candidate views Key Stage 3 and 4 Food Preparation and Nutrition as a significant part of a wider D&T curriculum and can articulate its relevance in today's world.  The candidate should be organised, confident in assessment for learning and, above all, someone who will form positive relationships with the students they teach and be supportive of the school’s inclusive ethos.

We are looking for a talented classroom practitioner and a team player with a strong depth of subject knowledge who is able to take a lead in this area of D&T. The successful candidate will be working in a brand new, purpose built, D&T food room.  The department has seen nearly £1 million worth of capital investment in its facilities over the past 3 years and indicates the strength of commitment the school has to this curriculum area.  The D&T facilities at the school are now some of the most impressive in Devon. Over the last few years, results have been consistently among some of the best in the school.  This has been as a result of high-quality teaching, excellent technician support, and strong links with local industry.  We are looking for a candidate who can sustain the popularity and high outcomes in food whilst continuing to foster these links.

We offer a very strong support programme for teachers who are starting their career, working towards ECT status or returning to teaching after a break.

Please contact Mrs. Pocock at for further details, or see our website and apply online.  The closing date is Monday 10th October 2022 at 9am with a view to interview the week commencing 17th October 2022.

We are committed to safeguarding the welfare of students so all staff are enhanced DBS checked.
