Science Teacher -

Are you looking for a good place to work, with high expectations and a caring ethos where "Everyone matters". Staff feel supported and are supportive of one another.

The Science Department is an enthusiastic and developing team consisting of 9 teachers and 3 technicians. We have 9 well-resourced labs, digital projectors in every lab, 2 mobile fume cupboards, 2 digital visualisers and sets of laptops for dedicated Science use. There is a large central prep room and chemical store and our own staffroom/workroom.

The school has continually improved across all areas over the last 2-3 years and is now not only graded as "Good" by Ofsted but also received their best academic results for ks4 last year. They are well linked in the community often offering support and assistance to local residences and charities.

I am looking for
-Teachers with a stable work history and experience of teaching Biology, Chemistry, Physics or General Science and looking for an opportunity to take a step up or a Head of Department looking to step down into a role focussed more on teaching.
- A confident and capable approach able to lead by example and assist the HOD where required.
- Previous experience as a Head of Year / Year Leader and other positions of responsibility are an advantage but not essential.
- Ideally you will have QTS, a teaching degree or an equivalent qualification (with Naric certification if from overseas)

The school's culture is very accepting and teachers work hard to improve the learning opportunities for all of their pupils. With a diverse student base many teachers enjoy the freedom and dynamic approach they're given with the teaching here and many stay on for permanent appointments often within the first year.
