This high-achieving single sex Academy in St Albans are looking for a Science teacher to start as soon as possible, teaching Science to all Key Stages through to the end of the academic year, with a permanent contract available for the right teacher.

This popular boys' school is part of a highly successful consortium where all schools achieve above average attainment from their pupils, with most continuing to sixth form and many going on to elite universities. It is heavily oversubscribed, with an excellent reputation in the local community and a rapidly increasing 16-19 cohort. In their last Ofsted report (2018), the school achieved "Good" status with pupil behaviour, teaching and learning and post-GCSE provision cited as particular strengths.

As a Science teacher you will be required to engage and encourage pupils throughout Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 in a highly academic, ambitious learning environment.

-Capable and motivational teachers able to engage classrooms and meet high expectations for pupil progress and attainment
-Reflective practitioners who are keen to improve their teaching strategies and collaborate with professionals from across the consortium in order to raise standards across the board, particularly in terms of 16-19 provision


The school boasts modern, spacious facilities, including a recent purpose-built Sixth Form area, and a strong Science department who are supportive and motivated, as well as a recently appointed headteacher who has overseen dramatic improvement across all areas of Ofsted assessment. CPD provision here is very strong with good practice shared across the consortium, which also regularly hosts PGCE placements and offers excellent support and training for NQTs. The school is based in St Albans and has onsite parking with easy access to the M1 and M25, as well as convenient public transport links to St Albans, Watford, Hatfield and Hemel Hempstead.
