This is a fantastic opportunity for an inspirational and enthusiastic Science Technician to work in a thriving new independent school in the heart of London. The successful candidate will help to consolidate and develop excellence in the delivery of Science teaching (Chemistry, Biology and Physics) across both Kensington Park School (11 - 16 years) and Kensington Park Sixth Form.

This post is suitable for a skilled and experienced science technician or teacher, or for an ambitious person who is relatively new to education and who can see potential in making their mark on this new school.

KPS operates from two sites either side of Kensington Gardens:

• Pupils aged 11-16 are taught at the Lower School in Bayswater, just north of the park;

• The Sixth Form operates in Queen’s Gate, opposite the Natural History Museum.

The suitable candidate may have the opportunity to teach their specialist subject to an appropriate level.

Whilst KPS has attracted a team of staff with a wealth of experience both teaching in and managing some of the oldest and most traditional schools in the country, its outlook on education is modern and dynamic. The staff are all excited by the chance to create something new and to build on all the best elements of the schools they come from.

With our wonderful central London location and a wealth of sports and cultural centres as our neighbours, we are able to integrate world-class co-curricular experiences into the timetable.

Salary is commensurate with the post.

KPS is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. The successful applicant will be subject to a number of safer recruitment checks including an enhanced disclosure through the Disclosure and Barring Service.
