We wish to appoint a well-qualified and enthusiastic Head of Science who can communicate his/her passion for this subject throughout the Senior School and enhance the already thriving Science Department. The successful candidate will teach throughout the Senior School (11-18) and have the ability to teach Biology and Chemistry at KS3, GCSE and A level.
A genuine enthusiasm for working with young people in a cohesive, friendly and happy community is absolutely vital, as is a willingness to participate in the organisation of school outings, field-trips and other extra-curricular activities.
St Gabriel’s is an independent day school founded in 1929 which incorporates Sandleford, our EYFS provision; at present there are approximately 500 pupils in the School. Sandleford Priory dates back to the early Middle Ages and is set in a beautiful Grade 1 listed building within 54 acres of Capability Brown parkland, which provides a gracious setting in which to work.
St Gabriel’s pupils thrive through strong, effective pastoral support; our broad curriculum and range of activities afford each pupil the opportunity to enjoy success according to their particular talents. St Gabriel’s is no ordinary school; parents are always impressed by the sense of purpose and enthusiasm of the talented, committed staff and the confidence of the extremely happy pupils.
We value our staff and, as such, you can expect to work in a friendly, supportive environment and enjoy the benefits of ongoing professional development.
This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Any offer of appointment will be subject to a satisfactory enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check.
