QPCS ethos is summed up by our vision statement based on our initials: Quality, Progress, Creativity, Success. QPCS is a successful school, rated good by Ofsted in February 2016.
Required from September 2018, we are looking for an enthusiastic, dedicated professional with drive and ambition to teach Science in our popular over-subscribed, mixed school of over 1200 students. We are committed to the highest of standards in all we do, and set ourselves challenging targets. We invest heavily in maintaining a high quality of teaching and learning which continues to impact upon the academic performance of our students.
Our aim is that all students achieve their full potential in every aspect of their school experience including our comprehensive range of curricular and extra-curricular subjects offered.
The successful candidate will be an outstanding teacher, well qualified to teach Science at Key Stages 3, 4 and 5. You will join a team of 12 teachers in 10 well-resourced labs. All KS4 students follow either the OCR Gateway combined science or separate sciences. We also have a large number of students who continue their studies on to A level.
We have a balance of teachers in the department and therefore feel able to consider candidates with any Science discipline as their specialism. This post would be suitable for an NQT. The school provides an extensive programme of support for newly qualified teachers and many of our current staff completed their teacher training here.
A TLR point is available for the right candidate to take on additional responsibility within the Science Department.
