Thank you for expressing an interest in becoming a Teacher of Science at the Forest Academy. The Forest Academy is on an exciting journey, and we are looking for a teacher who is committed to making a difference to the lives of our students. We are seeking to appoint a dynamic and inspirational teacher who is ambitious and has a real passion for their subject. The successful applicant will have high expectations, and will be a reflective practitioner who is always keen to develop and improve their teaching. They will appreciate their role in helping our students to have high aspirations, and they will share our belief that our students deserve an exceptional curriculum and the very best teaching. They will, like us, believe in our students. Applications are welcome from teachers of any science specialism.
Students enjoy studying Science at The Forest Academy, with over 30% of the current Year 10 studying Separate Sciences. We have recently updated our KS3 curriculum to ensure that it fully aligns with our CALIBRE curriculum framework, and department meetings are rooted in developing the expertise of our staff. There is the opportunity to teach within the Sixth Form, with Biology and Applied Science currently part of the Sixth Form offer at TFA, although we are keen to expand this offer in the future. Last year, we fully renovated one of our Science labs, and with plans afoot for further renovations this year, we are always looking for ways to enhance the experience that our students receive within their Science lessons. This role is crucial for our students, and will be pivotal in helping them to have high aspirations and to achieve at the highest level.
