We are looking to appoint an exceptional Teacher of Science to join our Middle Leaders’ Group as Assistant Head of Faculty for Science.  We are a flourishing and expanding school, with a Progress 8 score of +0.57 which places us in the top percentage of school in the count.

We are looking to appoint a colleague who has a proven track record of raising standards in Science and who can demonstrate inspirational teaching and a passion for delivering lessons which are motivational, challenging and engaging.  You will need to demonstrate the energy, enthusiasm and commitment to work as part of a team which is determined to achieve ‘outstanding’.  In return you will work in an exceptional and supportive environment that will further develop your professional skills and ambitions.

We would welcome applications from colleagues at a relatively early stage of their career who have exceptional subject knowledge, strong leadership potential and a clear understanding of how to enable all students to make outstanding progress in their learning.
