“Staff are proud of the work they do. Building on the long-standing traditions of the school, staff support the development of ‘courteous, respectful and calm’ young men, reflecting the school’s well-established values.”
[Ofsted Report – February 2017]
We wish to appoint a colleague to contribute to the continuing success of the students and who has the desire to work in an outstanding science department in a Leading Edge school. This opportunity arises from the growth of the school and we are looking to a science teacher (any discipline) who is looking to develop their own career in a highly supportive environment. The responsibility can be at a Deputy or Assistant Curriculum Leader level depending on the experience and desire of the successful candidate. A TLR allowance will reflect the final responsibility.
We have a history of excellence and are a high-performing school. Our Progress 8 measure is significantly above that for boys nationally, and science is, and has been, consistently in the top 10% of schools nationally for many years. At GCSE, students make excellent progress in all measures and all the sciences are extremely popular at A Level. We also offer Applied Science to our Sixth Form students. Girls join our highly successful Sixth Form and many students further their studies at university. In a recent independent review by ‘Challenge Partners’ the teaching of science at Key Stage 4 was graded as “outstanding” with the department classified as a national “area of excellence”.
Across the school, students benefit from our insistence on: high standards and achievement, an exceptional range of extra-curricular activities and the focus on traditional values. The school is in a period of growth and four new science laboratories have recently opened.
We are an over-subscribed and popular boys’ school with a mixed Sixth Form. We are situated in a tree-lined neighbourhood of Isleworth, a vibrant area of West London. We are close to Osterley Park, a short hop from central London by tube or rail, and have easy access to the M3, M4 and Heathrow Airport.
Amongst other benefits, we offer:
• A full, bespoke induction programme
• On-going professional development with an individual CPD allowance
• State of the art touchscreen classroom technology and a laptop
• The opportunity to work with dynamic, innovative and supportive colleagues
• The opportunity to work with students that exhibit “outstanding” student behaviour
• The opportunity to work with a range of leading external partnerships
• A chef-led canteen service
• Access to schemes such as: childcare vouchers; cycle to work and free flu jabs.
