Job Vacancies

Great organisations are populated by great people. We seek to recruit, train, motivate and retain talented people with, most importantly, the positive can-do attitude and a growth mind-set. Such people are most likely to perform well, conduct themselves well and strive to continuously improve.

In 2016, the percentage of students achieving five or more GCSE grades A* to C, including Maths and English, was 97%, which ranks Gordon’s in the top three non-selective schools in England. The A*-C pass rate at A Level was 94%, with 81% of the grades A* to B.

Gordon’s size ensures that every student is well known and nurtured as an individual.
