Head of Science


September 2018

Are you an ambitious Science teacher, looking for the next step in their career? If so, then this could be the job for you. The Science department at St Cuthbert Mayne School is ready for a leader to drive up standards in the subject and promote a love of learning with students for the Sciences.

The Governors are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, well qualified and ambitious teacher to become the Head of Science, in a vibrant and happy school, where staff members are committed to raising student attainment.  The purpose of the job is to ensure high quality teaching, learning, assessment outcomes for learners in the school, who study Science. Our commitment at St Cuthbert Mayne School is to become a ‘centre of excellence for teaching and learning’. This post will be integral to this aim.

St Cuthbert Mayne is a successful school serving the Christian community over a wide area of South Devon. The current number of students on roll is 920, including 144 students in the Sixth Form. We are a Joint Catholic and Church of England School with approximately half of our students being Catholic, and the remainder either Church of England or another Christian denomination. However, a considerable number of students do not practise their faith outside school. 

The latest Ofsted Inspection in November 2016 graded the school to be good, in every category. The statutory inspection of Anglican/Catholic Schools also conducted in November, graded the school to be good in all areas. Both reports can be found on the website.

The successful candidate will be able to teach Science, up to Key Stage 5. 

For further information, an application form or information pack please contact Mrs Webb julie.webb@stcm.torbay.sch.uk and visit www.st-cuthbertmayne.co.uk for more information about the school.

Closing date: 19th April, 10am

STCM is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment.

The successful applicant will be subject to an Enhanced DBS check, references and other employment checks.
