Science Teacher

Main Scale, outer London salary scales, £26k to £42k, pay award pending.  

We are looking for a Science Teacher to join us in this permanent role, which is available immediately and would suit a newly qualified as well as a more experienced colleague, as experience is less important than the ability to enthuse and inspire our students. Part of the Chiswick ethos is our commitment to developing your professional knowledge and skills and protecting your work-life balance as part of our team. 

Benefits go beyond pay with staff sports and gym facilities freely available, a thriving community spirit and social scene, childcare vouchers and free parking, and all in the context of an over-subscribed academy of 1,300 students situated in the beautiful west London suburb of Grove Park, next to Chiswick Park and the River Thames, with good rail links into central London.

As a school judged by OFSTED in November 2015 as requiring improvement we are part way through a journey to a judgement of good and beyond, and have made substantial progress so far. You can be assured that in this dynamic environment there is no coasting, and the development of staff and resources is a constant high priority.  

Science is a well-managed, well resourced, vibrant and innovative Department which provides excellent opportunities for career development. It comprises 7 laboratories and a well-resourced department base. The successful candidate will have the ability to teach all sciences at both key stages 3 and 4 and ideally Biology, Chemistry or Physics at AS/2 level. We welcome visits from potential candidates and to arrange this or to have an informal discussion about the role, please contact the Head Teacher’s PA Julie Lown on 020 8747 0031.
