Teacher of Science
Permanent, Full-Time, Starting September 2018
The Ted Wragg Multi Academy Trust is a values driven, rapidly growing 2 – 16 Trust with a relentless focus on transforming lives through learning by delivering outstanding outcomes for every pupil, regardless of background. With a reputation for highly successful school improvement in very challenging circumstances, we are passionate about driving up standards and raising the aspirations of all our students.
Do you have a relentless drive to achieve outstanding progress and attainment with children regardless of their background and prior learning?
We are seeking to appoint a highly motivated, capable and enthusiastic teacher, with a proven commitment to inclusive, innovative and inspiring teaching where each and every child can succeed. The candidate will need to be familiar with the demands of the KS3 Science curriculum in light of life after levels and the new GCSE specification. At Isca Academy students follow combined science and separate science courses and therefore, we are open to applications from teachers with any specialism, although those with a Physics or Chemistry specialism would be especially welcome. The post represents an exciting opportunity to be part of a vibrant and ambitious Academy working within the Ted Wragg Multi-Academy Trust.
Our school is located on a recently designed campus with purpose-built accommodation, offering spacious and excellent teaching and learning facilities. We currently have a roll of 750 students, rapidly growing to a capacity of 950. The Science Department boasts well-equipped modern laboratories. The team is supported by two full-time dedicated Science Technicians.
Isca Academy prides itself on providing high quality comprehensive education. Our students have a broad range of abilities and aspirations on entry, from able, gifted and talented to students needing more support with literacy and social skills. Beyond academic credentials, we firmly believe in the value of a more rounded education, which promotes creativity, self-belief and confidence, and as such, offer exceptional extra-curricular and outdoor education programmes. At our last Ofsted inspection, Isca Academy was found to be ‘Good’ in all categories and our focus remains on every student exceeding expectations, whatever their starting point.
The Science Department offers a broad curriculum suited to the needs of our students where creativity in planning and delivery is encouraged. We are a collaborative and supportive team of enthusiastic specialists who are committed to teaching Science in novel and engaging ways. As the Academy expands, the department is looking for an individual who combines excellent teaching with energy and innovation, and who can offer both inspirational classroom experiences and extra-curricular opportunities for our students within the field of Science.
The Ted Wragg Multi Academy Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All applicants will be subject to a full Disclosure and Barring Service check before appointment is confirmed.
