This is an exciting opportunity to work within a strong team of specialist, highly committed and enthusiastic teachers. Length of experience need not stop anyone applying for this post. What matters is an absolute commitment to wanting to get the best from every student. We are looking for ‘exceptional’, because ‘exceptional’ is what all our students deserve.
You will join a well-qualified, dynamic and forward thinking Science team of nine specialist teachers and 3 technicians. Science GCSE results have risen steadily in recent years. We run very popular GCE A Level Science courses at Key Stage 5. Many students go on to gain places to study Science subjects, including medicine, engineering and pharmacy at top universities. The seven specialist science laboratories and preparation room have all been recently refurbished and the department is very well resourced.
Whitefield is a rapidly improving school. Our examination results continue to rise year on year. But we still have ambitious plans for the future. The successful candidate will have access to Continuous Professional Development through our comprehensive internal and external CPD programme. The school also offers a range of benefits to all employees through our pro-active staff Well-being Team.
