Head of Biology

Bryanston SchoolBlandford Forum, Dorset

We want an innovative and energetic teacher to lead this key department. The successful candidate will have high standards, dynamism, excellent communication skills, leadership potential and a record of high-quality teaching across the age range. We expect our heads of department tirelessly to champion their subject and to encourage intellectual curiosity and active learning.

Under a new Headmaster, this position offers a fine opportunity to a charismatic and ambitious teacher and would be ideal for someone looking for their first HoD appointment. Experience of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and of teaching environment sciences would be beneficial but is not essential.

The person appointed will also be expected to contribute fully to the pastoral, boarding and co-curricular life of the School.

Bryanston School offers an exceptional working environment, which includes a competitive salary, state-of-the-art facilities and wide-ranging prospects for development; the School is committed to the leadership development of its staff.

This is a full-time post and we welcome applications both the independent and state sectors.
