Our Chemistry department forms part of a highly successful Science faculty, alongside Biology and Physics. We are seeking to appoint a suitably qualified professional who is both passionate and knowledgeable and shares our values to lead our Chemistry team. The ability to demonstrate a commitment to excellence in teaching and learning in Chemistry is paramount. You will have a genuine commitment of working towards the aim of all students receiving a positive and inspiring experience of studying Chemistry. The ability to teach Chemistry to A Level is essential. In conjunction with the other subject areas, Chemistry at Shelley College provides outstanding extra-curricular opportunities.
In return, we offer an excellent salary package, which generously rewards high performance; a supportive working environment; excellent support and training; and employee benefits including an attractive pension scheme, childcare vouchers, an Employee Wellbeing Scheme and Share Academy Savers.
Shelley College is an outstanding school, with exceptional staff and students. We believe in helping staff and students achieve their personal best and are keen to recruit the very best talent to our school.
We enjoy many advantages at Shelley College. As a National Support School and National Teaching School, we are at the centre of a network that aims to provide the very best professional and career development opportunities. We are also at the centre of an emerging academy chain of secondary and primary schools that share our values and want the very best for their students and staff. Whatever your role or whatever your career plans, we can help you achieve them.
Added to that, we possibly have the best rural location of any secondary school in the country, close enough to the cities of Leeds, Manchester and Sheffield for many of our staff to travel from these areas. Our staff are friendly and supportive of each other and there is a strong sense of a committed team working together.
SHARE Multi Academy Trust currently consists of Shelley College, Heaton Avenue Primary School, Millbridge Junior, Infant & Nursery School and Cowlersley Primary school with a view to continue to expand.
We want to create a mutually supportive family of schools because we believe that, by sharing our expertise and resources, we can improve the quality of education for our children and young people.
Our central belief is “Valuing People, Supporting Personal Best” and we apply this to everybody in our organisation, staff and children alike. We aim to treat everybody with respect and build positive relationships with each other and we want everybody working in our schools to do the very best they can. We support each other and celebrate our successes together.
