A part-time or full-time teacher of chemistry is required for September 2021 to teach Year 9 and GCSE chemistry, with a shared responsibility for Year 7 and 8 general science. There may also be the opportunity to teach A-level for the right candidate. This is a new teacher of chemistry role within the department and is in response to an increase in pupil numbers. Part-time hours would be a minimum of 12 periods per week (46.15% FTE).
Claremont Fan Court has a strong science tradition and standards in this department are high; GCSE chemistry achieved 80% A* to A grades last summer. Applicants will be expected to demonstrate an effective teaching style, have a sound knowledge of general science, and have a strong degree in the chemical sciences.
The role could suit an NQT for whom first class support will be given or an experienced teacher looking for a new challenge. A willingness to contribute to the co-curricular and pastoral life of the school is essential.
In return you can expect all the benefits of a thriving independent school: a competitive and progressive salary, pension, professional development, laptop, cycle scheme, lunches in term time, free parking and single accommodation on site may be available or a means tested rent subsidy.
