We are keen to hear from educational professionals who can think outside of the box in order to engage and enthuse a diverse range of abilities in the learning process. You will bring ideas, energy, enthusiasm and a commitment to measuring progress, raising attainment and increasing the profile of Science across the school.

You will be leading Science across Key Stages 3 and 4. As well as supporting whole school pastoral support.

An ability to teach other subjects would be an advantage as you will be required to support the schools offer of a broad and balanced curriculum.

We want all of our pupils to experience the best in a high quality learning environment. Our curriculum is supported by our own therapeutic team that work alongside our teaching staff to help and support the pupils.

You will benefit from opportunities for further professional development and career progression as we value and support our staff in all aspects of school life. We have a comprehensive induction programme for staff and a highly supportive leadership team.
