Science Teacher, Bayswater, London

Closing date:

Kensington Park SchoolBayswater, London

Date posted:
Start date: September 2018
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: Competitive
Contract term: Permanent
Suitable for NQTs: Yes

Science Teacher: Physics/Chemistry/Biology 

This is a fantastic opportunity for a well-qualified teacher of Science to deliver the subject to pupils in years 7 – 11, including preparation for GCSE. The post would suit either an accomplished teacher with the skills and experience to develop the department - and perhaps be considered for the role of Head of Faculty - or for an ambitious person who is relatively new to teaching and who can see potential in making their mark on this new school. You will be working alongside like-minded colleagues and guided by supportive, experienced managers.

Due to limited pupil numbers in the first two years as we concentrate on a two-form entry into years 7 and 9 it is likely that the candidate will teach a reduced timetable, therefore the ability to teach two or three of the sciences or contribute to another specialism is necessary to warrant this a full-time position.

Kensington Park School is split over two sites to the north and south of Kensington Gardens. The Sixth Form, in Queen’s Gate, opened its doors to pupils last year. We are now looking to staff the main school which is situated a short walk east of Notting Hill, in Queensway, for boys and girls aged 11–16.  The School opens this September and we have already had strong interest from families for entry into our various age groups.  Although we are a new school, we have been fortunate to attract a team that has a vast wealth of experience in running leading HMC schools. They have been excited by the chance to create something new and to build on all the best elements of the schools they come from.

With our wonderful central London location and a wealth of sports and cultural centres as our neighbours we will be able to integrate world-class co-curricular experiences into the timetable.

Salary is commensurate with the post and the possibility of single accommodation is available at a subsidised rate, which will involve some contribution to boarding duties. 

KPS is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. The successful applicant will be subject to a number of safer recruitment checks including an enhanced disclosure through the Disclosure and Barring Service.
