We are looking for a Leader of Science to join us in this permanent role, which is available from January 2019.  Part of the Chiswick ethos is our commitment to developing your professional knowledge and skills and protecting your work-life balance as part of our team. 

Benefits go beyond pay with the chance of accommodation on site, the possibility of R&R incentives for the right candidates, staff sports and gym facilities freely available, a thriving community spirit and social scene, childcare vouchers and free parking, and all in the context of an over-subscribed academy of 1,300 students situated in the beautiful west London suburb of Grove Park, next to Chiswick Park and the River Thames, with good rail links into central London.

As a school judged by OFSTED in October 2017 as requiring improvement we are part way through a journey to a judgement of good and beyond, and have made substantial progress so far. You can be assured that in this dynamic environment there is no coasting, and the development of staff and resources is a constant high priority. 

Science is a progressive, challenging and successful department that contributes fully to the whole school community. We strive to maintain outstanding standards of teaching and to provide a challenging, relevant and rewarding learning experience for all students from Key Stage 3 through to Key Stages 4 and 5. Our A level, BTEC and GCSE results have improved year on year and we look forward to working with you to continue this. We are a forward thinking department with team work and collaboration at our heart. We welcome visits from potential candidates and to arrange this or to have an informal discussion about the role, please contact the Head Teacher’s PA Julie Lown on 020 8747 0031.
