Start date: September 2019
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: £23,719 to £39,406
Contract term: Permanent
Suitable for NQTs: Yes

We are already starting to think about recruitment for September 2019.  We know that one of our Science teachers will be relocating to teach abroad in September and two others are considering relocating elsewhere in the UK. 

The Department and the Role:

Science is a strong, firmly established department which achieves good results and has an excellent reputation.  Our children enjoy their Science lessons.

In our last inspection in July 2016, OFSTED said that “Attainment and progress in science are very strong at key stage 3 and well above the national average at key stage 4.”  Past reports have praised the quality of teaching in Science.  

The Science Department delivers a diverse range of examination courses:

  • GCSEs in Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Combined Science (Trilogy). 
  • A Levels in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma in Applied Science

At the top of our agenda is challenging, well structured, engaging and innovative teaching and learning in which pupils make measurable progress in every lesson and are aware of what they need to do to take the next step in their learning.  Our team of Leading Practitioners support staff in their continuous professional development and disseminate good practice.  Three of our Leading Practitioners are Science specialists.

The Candidate:

Applications welcome from experienced Science teachers with a track record of rapid pupil progress or from potential NQTs who are making good progress on their courses.  

We welcome applications from Biology, Chemistry or Physics specialists.  You will teach all specialisms at KS3 and your own specialism at KS4.  There may be an opportunity for the right candidate to teach KS5.

We have an NQT induction programme which is considered to be an exemplar of good practice.  This is an excellent place for an outstanding Science Teacher to develop their career.
