MATERNITY COVER FOR ONE TERM
From: 1st September 2019
Salary: M1 to UPS3 (Outer London)
The Latymer School is a high achieving, but caring grammar school in North London. Visitors comment on the warm atmosphere and the level of participation in extra-curricular activities. Pupils at the school recently described the school as one “family” and a “real community”. We are very proud of our school and believe it is a place where you can really teach and develop.
We are seeking to appoint, commencing September 2019, a full time Biology Teacher who would enjoy working with highly motivated, intellectually curious students at Key Stages 3, 4 and 5. The Biology Department has dedicated and professional staff, able to offer the support required for a newly qualified and beginning teacher who is eager to contribute and make a difference to students that are conscientious and enthusiastic. The post is to cover a Maternity Leave and is for the Autumn Term 2019.
The Science Department, as a whole, works as a close-knit group, sharing resources and strategies across the year groups taught at the school. AQA is our chosen exam board. As you would expect, Biology is a popular option at GCSE and A Level.
The department’s exam results in 2018 were outstanding at both GCSE and at A level. At GCSE, 93% of students achieved grades 7-9, with 46% achieving grade 9 and 66% grades 9/8. At A level, 26% of students achieved an A*, 50% A*/A and 76% A*/B.
If you would like to work in a friendly environment, with guaranteed A-level teaching, then we would like to hear from you.
Closing date for application: 10am on Wednesday, 24th April 2019
