Start date: September 2019
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: (UPS / MPS)
Contract term: Permanent
Suitable for NQTs: Yes

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, inspirational and talented teacher to join our experienced team of specialist colleagues within the Science department. We want a person who is passionate about learning and teaching in their specialist field, including KS5 work, and who is able to take part in developing the vision, commitment and determination to raise standards across all levels and abilities. This post would suit an NQT or experienced teacher. 

Our school is situated on the Cumbrian coast on the edge of the Lake District National Park and not as remote as you might imagine! It is an easy drive or rail journey to work along some of the most scenic routes in the UK and living in Cumbria might be just the lifestyle change to suit you, with relatively low house prices. It really doesn’t rain all the time!

In January we moved to our new £33m school, which was individually designed (not an ‘off-the-shelf’ model!) and we have state of the art facilities – 9 fully equipped science labs – all with Clevertouch screens and a huge departmental prep room! 

St Benedict’s School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of its students.  All applicants are subject to the requirements of the Safeguarding Children and Safer Recruitment in Education guidelines.  This will include checks with past employers and the need for the successful applicant to hold or undergo a suitable enhanced DBS disclosure.
