Duke of Kent School, Ewhurst: Co-educational independent school (Nursery-Year 11) in the Surrey Hills. 

We seek to appoint from September 2018 (or possibly January 2019 depending upon the successful applicant’s circumstances) an inspirational Head of Science to lead the Science department and to teach KS3 and KS4. 

An outstanding Head of Science is required to lead our innovative department. The ideal candidate will inspire enthusiasm and confidence in our students, will be an excellent communicator and will be a team player, keen to share ideas with colleagues and committed to lifelong learning.

Applicants will specialise in Chemistry and / or Physics, however the ability to teach all of the Sciences up to GCSE would be a definite advantage.

Staff and students are all provided with an iPad for use in class and personal study, experience of teaching through this technology would be useful but training and support will be provided. 

Our class sizes are small (currently a maximum of 20) which allows teachers to form excellent relationships with the students and support them individually. 

Duke of Kent School aims to provide an excellent and stimulating education on our beautiful forest site. We aim to foster curiosity and the love of learning in our pupils; teachers benefit from a friendly and supportive staff room, excellent pupil behaviour, innovative approaches to teaching and learning and a strong home-school partnership. 

The closing date for this post is noon on 20th April 2018. 

Interviews will be held on 26th April 2018. 

Candidates should note that the vacancy may be filled prior to the closing date so early applications are recommended.  

Job details and an application form are available on our website. The Deputy Head (Academic) Mr David Hubbard, will be happy to speak informally to prospective candidates and can be contacted via our Assistant Bursar (HR & Operations), Rachel Harris -   rharris@dokschool.org
