Birchwood is a successful 11-18 mixed school with 1400 students on roll. We are very proud of our all-ability school, where students not only leave with strong academic qualifications but also as well–rounded individuals with a sense of responsibility.
• Engaged and motivated students
• 200 talented and hard-working staff
• Outstanding facilities for students and staff
• A determination to raise standards for all
• A belief in comprehensive values
• A commitment to professional development and staff well-being
The Science Faculty is well led and achieved its best ever GCSE results in 2017 with 75% achieving 2 or more A*-C grades (DfE Top 25th Centile). A-Level results were equally impressive (DfE Physics Value Added +0.5 Biology +0.3 Chemistry +0.2). Consequently Sixth Form uptake is strong with good progression onto Russell Group Universities to study Medicine or Science-related degrees
We are therefore looking to appoint a committed and dynamic practitioner who can join an otherwise fully staffed science faculty to deliver inspirational lessons across all aspects of the Science curriculum and support our aim to be a great school.
As a Science teacher you will be committed to delivering high quality learning experiences for all students that will inspire them to achieve the best of their ability.
This role is suitable for an experienced teacher or an NQT, where we offer an early start date of 1 July. There is also the possibility of a TLR for a suitable candidate.
We offer an effective and supportive induction and professional development package, available for all teachers as part of the school's commitment to a holistic learning community.
Closing Date – Friday 21st June 2019
Interviews – w/c 24th June 2019
We are an equal opportunities employer and are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our students and expect all staff to share this commitment. The post is subject to an enhanced DBS.
