Educating 1200 students, The Bishop’s Stortford High School provides a single-sex education for boys in Years 7 to 11 and has a large, thriving co-educational sixth form, with over one hundred girls on roll. Last year 89% of our GCSE students achieved grade 4+ in both English and Maths, contributing to a Progress 8 score of +0.15, compared to a national average for boys of -0.28. At A-Level we had a 52% A* - B pass rate in 2019. We have a strong ethos, based on high expectations and standards for all, a committed and supportive staff who deliver high quality, engaging lessons and well-behaved students with excellent attitudes to learning.
We were graded Outstanding in every category by Ofsted in March 2017.
We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, committed and engaging science teacher to join our fantastic school. The successful candidate will work within an ambitious, vibrant and high performing department to instil a love of science in all students. As well as a Level 3 BTEC Science course, the department runs multiple A-Level classes in each of Biology, Chemistry and Physics, and an ability to teach either Biology or Physics to A-Level would be expected of the successful candidate. The department achieved a value added score of +1.1 at GCSE last year and has a strong track record of producing large numbers of students who go on to study science related courses at university.
The school provides a supportive environment in which both newly qualified and experienced teachers have excellent opportunities to develop their careers. A formidable range of extra-curricular activities are available to students which include exchanges, cultural visits, first class fixture cards in all major sports, a diverse and high quality music and drama programme, DofE, Model UN conference, Young Enterprise, debating, public speaking and many more.
TBSHS is committed to safeguarding and promoting the safety and welfare of all our children and expects staff to share this commitment. A Disclosure Barring Service check is required for all successful applicants.
