The Joseph Whitaker School is a popular, oversubscribed school of 1300 students with attainment levels above the national average at both GCSE and post 16. We were inspected in March 2019 and the school was again judged as being “good”. It is worth reading the Ofsted letter as this gives a true flavour of our school.

The Governors are seeking to appoint a Principal AV and IT Technician.  We want to appoint a confident, ambitious person who has the ability to understand the school IT systems and who has the confidence to deputise for the IT Network Director when needed. This post has also been created to oversee our new sound and lighting equipment in the main hall plus all the other areas with AV equipment. The successful person would be expected to take a lead role in all AV aspects of school life to promote the school in a highly professional manner.  This is an excellent opportunity to develop the expertise for further career development.  

The successful candidate will have to meet the requirements of the person specification in order to be offered the post and will be subject to an enhanced DBS check. The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We welcome applications regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or religion.
