We wish to recruit an enthusiastic Head of Science to lead a successful department.  You will benefit from working with a very experienced and dedicated team of specialists. The successful candidate should be able to teach across the age range, including A Level, with a specialism in biology.   The ability to teach either chemistry or physics at KS4 would also be advantageous, but not essential.  

The opportunity has arisen due to the decision of the current Head of Science, who is also the Head of Biology, to step down and assume a part-time teaching role.  We will be interviewing for both the Head of Biology and Head of Science on the day.  You should indicate if you wish to be considered for both roles or just Head of Biology on your application.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. The post is subject to an enhanced DBS check and satisfactory references.
