Are you a Science teacher who has taken a career break?
Do you want to return to teaching in a supportive department?
Are you looking for a part time post up to 0.6 fte from this September?
Do you want to earn the Outer London Pay Scale in a pleasant suburban school?
Woodcote High School has long been a top choice for parents in the Coulsdon & Purley area of South London. Located in a pleasant suburban setting on the borders of Surrey, Sutton and Croydon, the school has a rural feel but is officially in the Outer London salary band.
Judged “good” by Ofsted in 2015 in all areas. Inspectors praised our students as “attentive, hardworking and practically always keen to learn. They get down to work fast and keep going diligently”.
In order to fit in the last piece of our jigsaw we would love to appoint a part-time teacher of Science up to a maximum of three days per week. This post will be ideal for a teacher returning from a break to bring up family or someone who wants a good work/life balance. We are happy to negotiate the exact days to fit in with your requirements. If you have energy, ambition and a passion for your subject, then we would like to hear from you.
GCSE results are way above average and A Level results are improving rapidly. Teachers rate Woodcote as an enjoyable place to work due to the “fabulous students and supportive colleagues”. This is a terrific opportunity for an innovative teacher to join our forward-looking and successful Maths Department and to help shape the future of the department.
In the summer 2016 results, A*/A grades in the separate sciences were all above 53%, with 100% A*-C. Our success rate in Additional Science was 78% A*-C. AS/A2 science subjects also performed exceptionally well, with the majority above ALPS targets. Student uptake of Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Psychology and Applied Science at Key Stage 5 also continues to go from strength to strength. The Department is well resourced and committed to developing its vision whereby all students fulfil their potential.
