Our staff are our most valued asset.  As a National Teaching School ALL our staff have access to a wealth of support provided by outstanding practitioners.

The Role

An outstanding teacher of Science is required for September 2018 to join a committed and hard-working department.  The successful applicant would be expected to teach a range of classes include Key Stage 3 and 4 (Trilogy Science and Separate Science), as well as potential Key Stage 5 lessons where applicable.  At Tudor Grange Academy Solihull, we try and provide staff a timetable which allows them to focus on their area of specialism, and therefore continue to be experts in their field, whilst contributing to other Sciences to a lesser degree.  Much time is committed to developing a wide range of teaching and learning strategies to be implemented across the subject areas, including a focus on developing students’ independence and spontaneity.

Additionally, you will benefit from:

  • Working with a department judged as outstanding in the school’s recent OFSTED inspection (June 2014).
  • Working with committed and able students.  88% of students achieved grade A*-C grades across separate and core/additional sciences in 2017.
  • Teaching in a forward thinking department with excellent resources and facilities for teachers who love their subject.
  • Working in a multi academy trust.  This potentially can create opportunities of collaboration and leadership across the four other secondary schools, as well as large scale Trust Insets with opportunities to share best practise and share resources across the Tudor Grange family.
  • Working in an Academy which is having a multi-million pound renovation over the next two years, creating new science laboratories which the department will directly benefit from.
