We are delighted to offer the opportunity for a Teacher of Science to join our team at Nottingham Free School.
Our school opened its doors to its first ninety students in September 2014 as a new member of the Nova Education Trust. Since then it has rapidly grown in both size and reputation. We now welcome approximately 600 students into our building every day, including a small number of sixth formers. The vast majority of our students live within walking distance of our front doors, making Nottingham Free School a true community school.
Nottingham Free School is a relatively small secondary school. That means that our staff and students benefit from working in a close-knit and friendly environment, but it also demands a degree of flexibility from staff. Everything we do, we do as a team. From its inception, Nottingham Free School was created to provide its students with a rich and inspiring education that would help them forge and pursue ambitious goals. Our ‘Work hard, be kind’ motto is just as important for our staff as it is for our students, as stated in our vision and values:
NFS staff work hard
We cultivate safe learning environments where we fuel students’ curiosity about the best of what has been said, written and done in our fields of expertise. We scaffold learning in ways that help students take the first step, and then we support them and challenge them to never give up. We help our students to understand that long term goals are achieved by taking small steps every day.
NFS staff are kind
We are role models for our students and grow with them. We enjoy the privilege of sharing their journeys, helping them to develop their sense of responsibility and respect for themselves and the world around them.
