Date posted:
Start date: 1 September 2018
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: MPS/UPS/Leadership
Contract term: Permanent
Suitable for NQTs: Yes

We are seeking to appoint an ambitious and inspirational teacher of Science to join our committed team of practitioners in delivering a curriculum which informs, transforms and generates a lifelong love of learning from September 2018. 

The successful candidate will have the ability to teach across the secondary age range from KS3 to KS5 with a specialism in any one of the three sciences. 

Applications from NQTs are welcome as the school has a very strong and well-developed NQT training and support programme. A management/ leadership allowance may also be available for an outstanding candidate able to take on additional responsibility. 

Science is a popular subject with many students choosing to do Triple Science at KS4 and both A Level and Level 3 BTEC courses at KS5. The successful candidate will need to work collaboratively with colleagues to deliver an engaging and contextualised curriculum. 

The Archbishop Lanfranc Academy opened in September 2014 and moved into its brand new whole-school rebuild in September 2017. Sponsored by the Coloma Trust since 2014 the Academy is currently completing the process of moving from being a Single Academy Trust to become part of a Multi Academy Trust for September 2018. This change in our status will open up new and exciting opportunities both for the development of staff and students at the Academy. 

The Academy received a “Good” in all aspects following its first Ofsted inspection in March 2017 and is now working towards being graded as “Outstanding” at its next inspection. The Academy also benefits from an on-site nursery open to both staff and the general public which also has a grading of “Good” from Ofsted. 

We are committed to high-quality, collaborative and relevant CPD for all members of staff to enable and support them to make the best possible progress in their role and in their future career development. As a growing school there are many opportunities for ‘in-house’ progression. 

The Academy is located within a short walk of Therapia Lane Tram Stop, mid-way between East Croydon and Wimbledon Mainline Stations and underground connections, both of which are approximately 15 minutes by tram from the school.

Telephone: 020 8689 1255 


Closing date for applications: Friday 23 February 2018

The Academy is fully committed to the safeguarding and well-being of all its students and staff. The successful applicant’s appointment will be subject to satisfactory enhanced clearance by the Disclosure and Barring Service.
