Birches Head Academy has recently become part of the Frank Field Education Trust and we work collaboratively with others in our FFET family, allowing our students and staff many opportunities to develop.  This is embodied in the FFET vision: ‘Social Justice through Excellence in Education’ and in the Academy motto: ‘Aspire to be More’.

Birches Head Academy is looking to appoint a suitably qualified and experienced Head of Science who will play a vital role in helping us to ensure our students receive a world-class education, thereby enabling each child to reach their full potential.  

The Head of Science will be an exemplar of implementation and aspiration in the classroom, who will work closely with the Senior Leadership Team and colleagues throughout the department, to drive continuing improvement in students’ progress, as well as the quality of Teaching and Learning within the science department.

The successful candidate should be an outstanding practitioner who is looking for the next step in their career, experienced in teaching both Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4.  You should have a proven track record of successful outcomes and delivering on your plans.

This is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious individual to demonstrate their ability to champion the Academy’s development and to be part of our exciting journey.
