Contract type: Full Time
Salary: Inner London United Learning Teachers’ pay scale
Contract term: Permanent

At Lambeth Academy, we live by our school motto to ‘be exceptional’. To achieve this, we need the best staff to bring out the best in every single student. For many of our children, this means equipping them with the knowledge, ambition and skill to attend university and go on to have a meaningful career.

We have a relentless focus on high standards, whether this is on the learning in classrooms, our students’ interactions around the Academy, or in raising their aspirations. We don’t overcomplicate things: teachers teach, and students learn. Anything that takes away from this core focus has to come second. We believe exceptional learning is about determining the simple things that work, doing them well, and doing them all the time. If you’d like to join us on this mission, please come and visit us – we’d be delighted to welcome you.

We are seeking to appoint an innovative and dynamic Assistant Head of Science who is able to teach across Key Stage 3, 4 and 5 in any specialism. Both NQTs and teachers that are more experienced are welcome to apply. The work is varied, rewarding and an exciting opportunity to help in the delivery of education to young people.

You will need to have QTS and a good honours degree in the relevant subject area as well as an excellent track record of achieving better than expected outcomes for young people in Science through consistently excellent teaching.

The successful candidate will need to be able to work with the Head of Science to support a large and diverse team. You will be looking to continue developing as both a teacher and a leader inside and outside the classroom.

The successful candidate will believe wholeheartedly in the potential of every young person to achieve academically and will find that it is this driving principle that motivates all that they do.

United Learning

Lambeth Academy is part of United Learning, a large, and growing, group of schools aiming to offer a life changing education to children and young people across England.

Our schools work as a team and achieve more by sharing than any single school could. Our subject specialists, our Group-wide intranet, our own curriculum and our online learning portal all help us share knowledge and resource, helping to simplify work processes and manage workloads for an improved work-life balance.

As a Group, we can reward our staff better: with good career opportunities, better pay, benefits, and ultimately, the satisfaction of helping children to succeed. We invest in our staff wellbeing. Our academies each have at least eight INSET days per year (with three of those solely dedicated to planning), and an ongoing group-wide wellbeing programme. It's an ethos we call ‘the best in everyone’.
