Faculty Leader for Science (maternity cover)
(TLR 1a currently £9659)
We are seeking to appoint an inspirational teacher with the skills, experience and energy to lead this thriving Faculty from January 2019 to cover a period of maternity leave. The Faculty teaches Triple Science alongside Core and Additional Science at GCSE. At KS5 we offer Physics, Chemistry, and Biology, and numbers of students opting for Science based subjects are strong and increasing further.
Outcomes in Science improved dramatically over the last year with GCSE results in the summer seeing progress reach +0.12.
Gosford Hill School is situated in Kidlington, on the north western edge of Oxford near to the new Oxford Parkway Station (a 50 minute journey from London). We are also fortunate to be at the gateway to the rural Cotswolds.
We welcome applications from both Subject Leaders, looking to make the next step in their career, or equally from ambitious main scale teachers looking for a new challenge, who feel that they have the passion, drive and determination to develop their leadership skills in order to make a significant impact on the learning of our young people through their leadership of the Faculty team.
If you are interested in the post, please complete an application form and include a letter (of no more than 2 sides of A4) outlining your reasons for applying and your suitability for the post. Application forms and further details are available on the school’s website or from Nicola Cooke, Headteacher’s PA (tel. 01865 374971; email firstname.lastname@example.org The closing date for receipt of applications is noon on Monday 19th November 2018. Interviews will take place on Monday 26th November 2018.
