Head of Science (with the possibility combining with Director of Teaching and Learning)

Moor Park SchoolShropshire

Moor Park is an IAPS, co-educational, boarding and day school of Catholic foundation accepting pupils from 3 months to 13 years of age. Children from 3 months to rising three are catered for in our Tick Tock nursery/child care setting which runs for 50 weeks in the year. Thereafter, children enter the Pre-prep until the end of Year 2. The Middle and Upper Schools complete a Moor Park education before the children leave to the full range of senior schools both locally and nationally, many with scholarships in the full range of disciplines despite being a non-selective school. In the last four years, 99 children have won a total of 84 scholarships and awards, an enviable record. Children have won academic awards to Harrow, Radley and Shrewsbury (amongst others) in the last three years.

Being a boarding school for the 8 to 13 year olds, the school operates on a 24/7 basis during term time and children take advantage of the beautiful surroundings and excellent facilities. The school is built around a magnificent 18th century country mansion in approximately 85 acres of stunning grounds, which include playing fields, woodland and a lake.  It is situated just outside the market town of Ludlow in the beautiful Shropshire countryside.

Moor Park is seeking a Head of Science who will fit into our culture of educational innovation and excellence. We are a staff room who value excellent and committed teaching and a school where colleagues value energy, innovation and mutually supportive relationships. You would also benefit from a belief that supporting and developing staff is the key to improving schools. Talent is nurtured at Moor Park and this would be an excellent move for anyone who wished to progress their career or who is simply looking to bring established expertise to a supportive and exciting environment. We are searching for a specialist who will develop this crucial department whilst setting high standards in the classroom for children of all abilities.
