Science Teacher (Chemistry and/or Physics) 

Salary: MPS Additional responsibility allowances may be available for suitably qualified and experienced candidates 

Required for January 2018 for two terms in the first instance  

Closing Date: 9am Monday 25th September 

Interviews: Thursday 28th September, but we reserve the right to interview before the closing date.

Our Vision: JCoSS is an academic, aspirational learning community, known and respected for our pioneering spirit, our humanity and our excellent outcomes.    

Our Ethos: If you think you know what working in a Jewish school might be like, be ready to think again.  Our outward-looking and pluralist Jewish ethos combines an embrace of open-minded values with a deep love of the varied riches of Jewish tradition.  The staff and leadership team includes different faiths, and none, at all levels, and the school has a culture of purposeful good humour and humanity. We are a faith school like no other.  

Our Results: We have a track record of excellent academic results.  In 2017 43% of GCSE grades were at A*/A or 9-7, and well over a quarter of our students achieved eight A/7 grades or better.  We have averaged +0.5 for Progress 8 in the three years so far (0.6 in 2017), and were a Top-100 non-selective school nationally in 2015.  At A level 66% of grades were at B grade or better, and 80% of vocational outcomes at Distinction or better; our first full cohort secured several Oxbridge, Medicine and Vet Science places, with the great majority going to Russell Group or Top 25 Universities.  We have consistently achieved a high ALPS Grade 2 at both KS4 and KS5.   

Staff Benefits: We appoint on potential as well as experience, and we are committed to supporting staff development.  Several non-teaching colleagues have trained with us as teachers; our rich CPL programme includes full induction for new staff including NQTs, NPQH/SL/ML programmes and financial support for MA courses, Action Research projects and many other opportunities.  Additional responsibilities are always considered for suitable candidates and we offer NQTs employment for the last few weeks of the summer term.  Our admissions policy includes priority places for the children of all staff.    

Our Location & Community: The school is in beautiful new £48m buildings overlooking the Green Belt.  It is easily accessible from Northern, Piccadilly and Overground rail links and buses run past the entrance.  We attract students from eloquent and supportive communities across North London and Hertfordshire. We are planning an expansion in response to over-subscription.  

This Role: We need a dynamic and flexible teacher to join our Science team. The School opened with a Specialism in Science and it continues to enjoy a prime position in the JCoSS curriculum.  The Faculty includes Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Psychology, and is housed in excellent facilities with ample resources and a strong sense of Faculty cohesion.   We currently teach the AQA Science specifications at both Key Stage 4 and 5 and results are excellent. At A level Science 80% of grades were at B or above, with strong success from medics, vets and a Cambridge Natural Science places. At GCSE 65% of grades were at B or higher, with 63% of Further Additional Science grades at A8 or A.  

Due to the planned absence of a permanent member of staff we need a well-qualified science teacher to teach general Science at Key Stage 3 and Physics and/or Chemistry to Key Stage 4. The post is for two terms in the first instance, although it could become permanent.  There may be the opportunity for a suitably qualified candidate to teach their specialism to A level. These possibilities would be explored at interview.  

Additional responsibilities may be available for suitably qualified and experienced candidates.     

JCoSS is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all its staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  All posts are subject to satisfactory enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) clearance.
