Norlington School and 6th Form is a small 11-16 boy’s school with a mixed 6th form school. Over the past 5 years the school has transformed itself into one of the highest performing schools in the country and has been recognised by the Minister for State Schools on three separate occasions for student achievement.

Norlington was judged to be a 'good school' by Ofsted;

· 'Students make excellent progress in Mathematics and Science.' 

· 'Students behave well in lessons and around the school. They enjoy coming to school.' 

· '..Leaders have a relentless drive for continuous improvement' 

The school has an excellent CPD programme and is committed to developing all staff, as we continue our journey to becoming an ‘Outstanding’ school. This includes three staff training afternoons, two department meetings and one twilight training session every 6 weeks. Lessons finish for students at 1:30pm on a Friday.

We are looking for someone who is creative, innovative and open to new ideas to help drive the department forward to success. The Science department delivers A level courses in the 6th form.

The Science department has enjoyed outstanding results at GCSE Science (including double and triple award) which was recognised by our most recent Ofsted inspection.

· A committed and dynamic teacher of Science with a 'can do' attitude.

· An innovative practitioner who is creative in their delivery of the KS3, 4 and 5 curriculum (Biology essential).
