Abingdon Preparatory School is a leading independent preparatory day school of around 250 boys aged between 4 and 13 years. The school is located on its own site in Frilford, Oxfordshire and is part of the Abingdon Foundation.
At Abingdon Prep we are seeking to appoint a dynamic Head of Science who can lead a department and deliver excellence across all areas of the school. The applicant will be confident to teach pupils for senior school entrance examinations including Academic Scholarship and Common Entrance (though the majority of pupils go on to Abingdon School and do not need to take Common Entrance). The applicant is also likely to be a Form Teacher in Years 6-8 and would be expected to contribute fully to our ‘Other Half’ provision.
This is a wonderful opportunity for either a current Head of Science or a suitably experienced Science Teacher aspiring to be Head of Department to join our school, which was judged to be excellent in all areas and exceptional in pupil achievement and learning in our most recent ISI inspection. We are seeking to appoint a talented and inspiring professional, who is passionate about teaching, can provide effective departmental leadership, who is flexible to work as part of a team, as well as being able to take the initiative and contribute more generally in a busy and stimulating school environment.
The closing date for applications is Wednesday 17 January 2018 (midday)
Interviews will be held on Wednesday 24 January 2018
Abingdon is committed to safeguarding the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. All appointments are subject to a satisfactory enhanced DBS check.
