We are a large and popular maintained school in Wakefield, near to the M1 and with excellent links to Sheffield, Leeds and Kirklees. We are often oversubscribed and are currently planning for a larger cohort entry that will see new capital building work and a potential 11-16 roll of 1,800 pupils.

We are looking to further develop pupil outcomes in science, across the school, in order to secure outstanding progress. This post is a key driver in working towards a consistent and high-quality science offer in a large comprehensive school with over 1600 pupils.

 We are looking for an inspirational leader to drive the curriculum area to its next stage of development. You will have a clear vision and enthusiasm for science education and be committed to ensuring the highest standards of teaching and achievement.

In return, you’ll join a popular school committed to your CPD and be part of a professional, successful team.

The school is popular in the local area and we attract pupils from across the Wakefield and Barnsley district. Ofsted have recognised as outstanding: the care and support offered to pupils and the extent to which they feel safe, along with leadership across the school. It really is an exciting and rewarding place to work.

Closing date: Noon on 31st January 2020.
