Thank you for your interest in the post of Teacher of Science at Baines School. I am proud to be the Headteacher here and am delighted that you are interested in joining our team at this exciting time of change. Baines School is a special place that has great potential to be the most wonderful place for learning and personal development. There are so many positives to share, as well as a number of areas to improve. We are looking for an inspirational and driven leader to join us at a time where we want to rapidly move the school back to ‘Good’ and towards ‘Outstanding’.

A major focus for the science department is ensuring that every student, no matter their age or ability,  receives the highest quality science education possible.  We want to enthuse our students to have the same love of science that we all possess and to consider carrying on science as their chosen career.  We scaffold the learning to support our weakest students, whilst extending and challenging our most able learners so that all students achieve their very best.  We teach, where possible through an investigative, real-world context and with our students hopefully agreeing that our teaching is “Inspiring us to solve World problems”.

The ideal candidate:

• is an enthusiastic and inspirational teacher of science

• can model excellence inside and outside the classroom

• is flexible, resilient, has a ‘can do’ attitude and is relentlessly positive

• can inspire students of all abilities to be the best they can be

• is driven by moral purpose to serve the community of Baines School

• has the passion to inspire young people to love science, regardless of their ability

We will offer you:

• excellent CPD opportunities

• friendly and vibrant staff and students 

• staff and governors who are loyal to the school 

• stretch and challenge

• opportunity to be part of a school improvement journey and make a real difference to students’ lives.
