Opportunity for an exceptional candidate to be a founding teacher at a brand new Ark secondary school in Barnet
Next September, Ark Pioneer, a non-selective secondary school, will open its doors to our brand new building in Barnet and welcome in our first year 7. By the time they reach year 13, we’ll have over a thousand pupils. We will deliver a standard of education matching the very best schools in the country. Our vision is that every pupil leaves Ark Pioneer with real options, be it embarking on the university course of their choice or starting out in their chosen career.
We are recruiting a founding team of exceptional staff to achieve our vision and work together to create a genuinely outstanding school. The new science teacher will work closely with the Head of Department to shape science provision at Ark Pioneer. This is an exciting opportunity for an energetic teacher who is passionate about science and committed to challenging every pupil to achieve their potential.
Teaching experience will not be a determining factor - we welcome applications from NQTs as well as more experienced candidates. We will develop every staff member that joins our team, providing one-to-one support, coaching and mentoring and access to extensive network training.
Additional teaching and learning responsibilities would be available for the right candidate.
