Working at Gillotts

Thank you for your interest in joining Gillotts School.

Gillotts School is a high performing and oversubscribed yet fully comprehensive 11-16 school in South-East Oxfordshire.

We achieved GCSE progress results in the top 10% of all schools in 2019 and we are proud of these results and the children that achieved them; we work hard together, “non nobus solum”, to achieve outstanding outcomes for each and every one.

As a high-performing school, Gillotts places innovation in teaching and learning at the heart of its improvement. This is underpinned by an in-house individualised CPD programme which allows staff to develop the skills most pertinent to their development. We are committed to our staff and work in conjunction with the Oxfordshire Teaching School Hub, Oxfordshire Teacher Training (OTT), and OTSA to offer the very best in professional learning for colleagues at every level.

We are looking for staff who:

  • Want to be excellent practitioners
  • Are keen to work together to achieve our shared aims
  • Are committed to helping all our young people be the best they can be
  • Are reflective practitioners – keen to grow and develop throughout their career
  • Are curious about finding creative solutions to tricky problems and building leadership capacity across the whole school

What we will offer:

  • Remarkable behaviour (OFSTED 2020) – we believe in clear routines, appropriate responses and outstanding relationships fuelled by mutual respect and a commitment to excellence.
  • Great curriculum resources – clear and coherent schemes of work that mean you can spend time thinking about the how rather than the what.
  • Commitment to high quality CPD – we’ll support and challenge you as an individual so you can develop your skills as a teacher rather than feeding everyone the same diet irrespective of their needs and goals.
  • Efficient solutions – we focus on evidence-based approaches where teacher-time spent is commensurate with student outcomes. This means, for example, that we use methods of feedback that are designed to move learning forward; you should be spending time on things that will make a difference.
  • Staff wellbeing as a priority – we care about our staff as teachers and as people. Teams work very closely together with a focus on developing practice but also supporting each other in the good times and the bad.
