Ipswich High School seeks to appoint an outstanding, passionate and dynamic classroom practitioner as Teacher of Science with effect from 1st September 2021.
The successful applicant will join a department which enjoys an outstanding reputation, helping pupils to achieve excellent GCSE and A-level results year-on-year and with all three sciences regularly being amongst the most popular subject choices at A-Level. We are seeking to appoint an individual who is excited by the opportunity to join this thriving department.
Due to the considerable experience and expertise within the department, the primary qualities sought are the ability to inspire and support pupils to enjoy and make excellent progress in any Science discipline(s), within any part of the Year 7-13 age range. Prior experience of successfully teaching the full age range, for example at A-Level is not therefore required.
Located on an idyllic 87-acre campus on the banks of the River Orwell, Ipswich High School enjoys an enviable reputation of delivering outstanding academic results whilst maintaining a warm, welcoming and happy community of approximately 440 pupils, aged 5-18.
Working at Ipswich High School suits those who have a genuine commitment to both the academic and personal development of young people as well as the willingness to contribute to the wide co-curricular and community activity of our school.
The successful candidate will have the opportunity to join our ambitious, friendly and caring community of staff and students and enjoy teaching small classes (usually approximately 15 pupils) of polite, respectful and hardworking young people as well as benefiting from terms and conditions which include a maximum of 80% directed teaching time and 18 weeks holiday per year.
Please note, although we are a boarding school and very much welcome applicants who bring relevant experience, we continue to run a Monday-Friday timetable and therefore teachers’ terms and conditions do not commit them to assisting with evening or weekend boarding duties.
Competitive and dependent upon skills and experience. Further details of other benefits can be found in the supporting information pack.
How to apply:
Please send a completed application form and letter outlining your experience, suitability and ambitions for the role to the HR Officer at email@example.com or by post to the address below:
