St Paul’s Way Trust School, in association with Queen Mary, University of London, is seeking to appoint an outstanding Head of Faculty for Science and PE.
The successful candidate will have a passionate belief in the potential of every student, and a robust commitment to ensuring that every student succeeds. (S)he will be an outstanding classroom teacher with a keen interest in the development of all the subject areas within this diverse Faculty. (S)he will be looking to develop his/her career into senior middle leadership, and will have the capacity to lead colleagues to make impact on student progress, and develop a rich curriculum for all the subjects.
The successful candidate will be expected to outline a compelling vision for raising participation in extra-curricular activities across the Faculty, and will have a strong sense of the ways in which the St Paul’s Way Graduate strands can be integrated into Faculty Improvement and Development Planning.
The Science and PE faculty is an increasingly successful faculty within St Paul’s Way Trust School with the majority of students in our expanding sixth form studying at least one of the sciences. The excellent sixth form teaching has been enhanced by the development and creation of the Science Research Centre in conjunction with Queen Mary University (QMUL). This has allowed our sixth form students to engage and participate with real research through the Authentic Biology Project.
Our exceptional links with QMUL, King’s College London, The University of Warwick, The UCL Institute of Education and the University of East London help shape an inspirational science curriculum including that we are London’s only Faraday science school.
St Paul’s Way Trust School Science Faculty and QMUL are delivering a unique foundation year medical course at their Whitechapel campus providing SPWT staff with an opportunity to teach with honorary lecturer status.
We are a heavily over-subscribed ‘through-school’ and National Teaching School, with ‘Outstanding’ provision (Ofsted, March 2013). If you would like to play your part in taking outstanding provision for our students to the next level, and leading students and colleagues to achieve the best outcomes possible, we would very much like to hear from you.
