We are looking to appoint a teacher of Chemistry to join our team of committed scientists.  This opening would be to provide cover for a member of the team who will be on maternity leave from 4th June to approximately October half term.

The Science Faculty at Knights Templar School is a thriving team of 11 teachers, well supported by 5 Science Technicians and 2 departmental LSA’s.  Science at KTS has recently undergone some exciting changes in structure and staffing, along with moving into our state of the art Science Centre in Autumn 2016.  Chemistry is a popular subject area with students and is promoted extensively by all staff, both within the curriculum and by extra-curricular activities.

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
