Tradewind are working alongside an aspirational, high-achieving "Good" rated academy in the heart of Luton and surrounding community. They are seeking a Science teacher to start in January for an ongoing full-time position.

Our client school hold their core value close to everything they do and are looking for a teacher to join their existing team of teachers in their dynamic team. Offering links to a number of local universities including Cambridge this teacher training school welcomes applications from NQT's and experienced teachers alike. Sixth form numbers in the school are over 400 and Science continues to prove a popular subject within the school. Attainment and results are consistently above average. Ofsted stated
"Pupils are pleasant, polite and respectful" and praised their enjoyment of school highlighted in positive attendance and inclusion in a number of various enrichment clubs and programmes.

The school are seeking a teacher who is:
*Committed to student progress and continually improving outcomes.
*Enthusiastic, dedicated and able to form a rapport with students in both English and extracurricular activities.
*Creative, engaging and continually developing their teaching practice throughout the department.
*Able to use comparative data to set targets and benchmarks for improvements.
*Committed to safeguarding and able to uphold the school's high standard of care for their pupils.
*A degree in Science and the ability to teach to KS4 is required, witht he ability to teach to KS5 beneficial.


This role will entail teaching Science at KS3 and 4, as well as contributing to the school's popular extracurricular provisions.

The Science department aims to engage and inspire students with thought provoking questions, practical demonstrations and group work in order for them to succeed as the scientists of the future.
From finding out how a light bulb works, to debating whether or not genetic cloning could be the future; students will develop a greater understanding on their quest to understand the world we live in.
From medical research to mechanical engineering; succeeding in science opens doors to a vast array of careers; allowing students to meet challenges and solve problems we may not even know exist.
We expect all students to make positive measurable progress in science in order to achieve their full potential. This means that they must have a "can do" mentality to face any scientific challenge that they are presented with.

The department understands that some areas of science can be challenging, and the science team will help students conquer these challenges by offering the opportunity to engage in extended learning activities. There will be the chance to join science clubs as well as take part in national competitions for young scientists.

Some areas of science naturally flow out of the classroom and students will get the opportunity to visit a range of key venues including the Science Museum and the Natural History Museum to further advance their learning.


The school is located in rural Bedfordshire and easily commutable from Hertfordshire, Cambridge and Bedford, with onsite parking and a 15-minute bus ride form the local station.
With a superb SLT team, good facilities and pupils that enjoy learning this is a school that makes a lot of our supply staff's 'favourite' list- the school offers a modern on-site fitness suite for all staff and regular staff socials.
