To stand on the shoulders of giants

The East London Science School is about to enter its fifth year. As our popularity grows, we are keen to recruit exceptional individuals to work with the Principal to develop this unique and exciting school as we look to our first set of GCSE results in 2018.

This is an exciting opportunity for a highly committed, passionate Biology teacher to contribute to our unique knowledge-led curriculum aimed at giving pupils in one of the most deprived areas of the Country access to a stimulating and enriching academic education.

All pupils have separate Biology lessons from Year 7 and we are entering all our pupils for Biology GCSE with the course starting in Year 9. We are looking for a teacher who is both a strong Biologist and a talented teacher able to take every pupil through the GCSE to the highest level and beyond. We will be introducing A-level biology in the near future. It is a core aim of the school to improve the chances of our pupils progressing onto higher education in the sciences, engineering and medicine. Biology already has a high profile in the school and the successful applicant would be joining an enthusiastic and energetic team.

We are very keen to promote science education across East London and the candidate would be expected to help deliver our outreach programme.

We are looking for a strong candidate to contribute to the development of Biology teaching at the East London Science School. This would involve contributing to development on GCSE and A Level courses and instilling a love of the subject in all our pupils.  

We welcome visits to the school and these can be arranged via email: or by calling the school on 020 8981 2680.
