Plumstead Manor is a thriving and rapidly improving school with its own Sixth Form, dedicated to providing a world-class education to the young people and families of Royal Greenwich. We hold a strong commitment to promoting excellence, justice and success for young women and we look forward to extending this to young men as we welcome a mixed intake in to Year 7 from September 2018.
Our goal is to inspire and nurture young people of all abilities and backgrounds to develop a love of learning which will sustain them through their lives. It is this which will successfully see them into further education and the fulfilling career of their choice. We believe that high quality teaching, in a safe, friendly and harmonious community, is the key to unlocking the potential that all our young people have, so that they can go on to change the world for the better.
Our Science Department is a vibrant and energetic team of specialists, who offer a range of qualifications across academic, and where appropriate vocational pathways. This includes Double and Triple Science at GCSE, alongside A levels in Biology, Chemistry and Physics supplemented by a successful and rigorously taught Level 3 BTEC Applied Science. At KS3 students follow our new curriculum that develops curiosity about the way the world works and seeks to uncover the inner beauty that Science has to reveal. We seek to promote a lifelong love of learning all the sciences and our broad and balanced curriculum means we provide a platform for our students to compete for the most competitive courses at university and most sought-after jobs. Many of our Post 16 students go on to study Science at a higher level, in areas including medicine, pharmacology and engineering.
We are seeking an inspiring and well qualified teacher, who shares our vision and commitment to high aspirations for academic scholarship, good behavior and personal development. As Deputy Curriculum leader you will lead and monitor the curriculum development of Science in a particular Key Stage, and will facilitate and encourage inspirational learning experiences which provide students with the opportunity to achieve their individual potential and attainment. You will support the Curriculum Leader and Lead Practitioner in raising the profile and success of Science across the whole school, with a focus on continuing to raise standards and further developing the quality of teaching and learning within the department.
We can offer you dynamic and enthusiastic students, the opportunity to be part of a strong, supportive and successful science team, high quality professional development and a whole school commitment to excellence and justice in a successful and harmonious community.
