Duke of Kent School, Ewhurst: Co-educational independent school (Nursery-Year 11) in the Surrey Hills.

We seek to appoint from September 2018 a Teacher of Science to teach KS3 and KS4. 

An outstanding Science teacher is required to join our innovative department. The ideal candidate will inspire enthusiasm and confidence in our students, will be an excellent communicator and will be a team player, keen to share ideas with colleagues and committed to lifelong learning.

Applicants will specialise in Chemistry and / or Physics, however the ability to teach all of the Sciences up to GCSE would be a definite advantage.

Newly Qualified Teachers are welcome to apply. Staff and students are all provided with an iPad for use in class and personal study, experience of teaching through this technology would be useful but training and support will be provided. 

Our class sizes are small (currently a maximum of 20) which allows teachers to form excellent relationships with the students and support them individually. 

Duke of Kent School aims to provide an excellent and stimulating education on our beautiful forest site. We aim to foster curiosity and the love of learning in our pupils; teachers benefit from a friendly and supportive staff room, excellent pupil behaviour, innovative approaches to teaching and learning and a strong home-school partnership.

Interviews will be held w/c 26th February.
