This is an exciting opportunity for a dedicated Chemistry teacher to work in a well-resourced and flourishing department. This is a key role which would suit an ambitious, well qualified individual, wishing to make a significant impact on the success of the school and to enhance the girls' education, through both curricular and co-curricular activities.
The successful candidate should be an enthusiastic and well-qualified teacher of Chemistry, able to meet the rewarding challenge of inspiring our motivated girls from Year 7 to Sixth Form, both inside and outside the classroom. The successful candidate will teach Chemistry across all age groups, from Year 7 to A level. Willingness to teach across the Science faculty and to offer Biology would be an advantage. Students attain excellent examination results and Science is a popular subject at Advanced level.
