Biology Teacher (to include A-level teaching)
This is a rare chance to join a top academic department at a school rated outstanding by Ofsted. Sutton Grammar School has extremely able and (mostly) well-behaved pupils and a very low turnover of staff. Applications are welcomed from dynamic biology teachers who can deliver interesting lessons and who are committed to their continuing professional development.
The successful applicant will join a strong team, the members of which work collaboratively to ensure that pupils are offered the best possible opportunities to succeed.
The post is full time - although applicants offering a high part time fraction (over 0.75FTE) will also be considered.
The Science Faculty is housed in ten well equipped laboratories. The biology department also has rooftop glasshouses. The academically selective intake has recently increased to 135 boys (from 120) in each year and this growth continues for three more years.
Sutton Grammar School is a selective school for 910 boys, graded outstanding by Ofsted, and we seek a new member of the science faculty to teach biology to build on the excellent reputation that this science already has within the school. We are currently a hub school for training biology teachers in the local training school partnership.
Applicants should be qualified teachers. We offer very good support to NQTs. We want the best teacher we can get to enthuse our students about biology and help them get into the top universities to study biology, medicine and other related subjects.
All teachers in the department share in the sixth form work.
Extra-curricular contributions are also welcomed and you may have other skills to offer (e.g. computer science, sport, interest in CCF, STEM projects, music,.....). The school greatly values this side of school life and we are always looking for new colleagues to support activities beyond their teaching subject. STEM project work is especially well developed and we offer the boys opportunities to carry out scientific studies that result in several of them gaining national or international awards each year. You could be part of this exciting work too.
Come and teach at a friendly and successful school! Staff turnover is very low.
