Lead Teacher - Science
Required for September 2020 (earlier start is also possible)
Carlton Bolling is an Outstanding school which has been on a rapid improvement journey over recent years, with results in 2017 within the top 5% of schools nationally. This progress was recognised by Ofsted who praised the “Highly aspirational vision for the school”.
Staff enjoy working at Carlton Bolling and are supported and encouraged to lead and develop practice “Pupils and staff are enthused and excited to excel. Pupils and staff work together within a harmonious community, where they are fully supported”: Ofsted, November 2017.
Although we are rated Outstanding, we are still moving forward at the same trajectory on our path to become one of the top 1% of schools in the country. If you share this vision, and are prepared to put in the effort to attain this goal, we would like to hear from you.
As Lead Teacher in Science you will be working at leadership level to share recognised best practice in teaching and learning through research and investigation, partnership teaching, mentoring and coaching, leading professional development, working parties, running a teaching and learning development group and working across faculties and departments to embed school priorities. You will work with teachers to support the development of their practice and be committed to securing high expectations for learning and raising achievement in a multi-ethnic school, including the tracking and monitoring of student progress.
The Science Faculty is a large faculty with 15 teachers and 3 technicians. We follow the national curriculum for years 7 and 8 and students take options for a three-year GCSE from year 9 to year 11. Average class sizes are around 20-22 students at KS3 and 20 at KS4 and staff are supported with some excellent resources and training.
This exciting opportunity will enable the successful candidate to develop an excellent foundation for future leadership roles.
