Salary Information


The Fernwood School enjoys an excellent reputation. It is an oversubscribed school which has been judged as ‘outstanding’ in all categories by Ofsted in April 2012.

We have a rare opportunity to appoint a dynamic, enthusiastic and highly skilled teacher of Design & Technology capable of delivering KS3 through to KS5 in all material areas.

The Fernwood School has a thriving, well equipped and forward thinking D&T department and you would be joining a high performing and cohesive team of teachers and technical staff. The D&T department has a strong reputation throughout the midlands, and is one of only 4 leading edge schools for D&T nationwide having achieved multiple awards for the quality of our teaching and our broader curriculum approach. Although Fernwood School is an 11-16 school, we also deliver A-Level D&T on behalf of our local sixth form college (Bilborough College) from our site.

The department benefits from 3 well equipped mixed material workshops, with modern CNC equipment, 3D printers, full casting and metal work facilities, large bed laser cutter, A0 printer, along with electronics and robotics equipment and much more.  We are lucky to have 3 dedicated D&T specific computer rooms within the department, with industry standard CAD and graphics software installed including access to graphics tablets when needed.

Further information on the work of the department can be found on our website, and also on our twitter feed @fernwooddt.

This may be of interest to a newly qualified teacher, or a teacher with further experience.
