Teacher of Science
Required for September 2017 or January 2018
Main Pay Scale (Outer London Area) plus TLR 2.1 (£2,640) available for suitably experienced candidate
Stanley Park High is a flourishing and vibrant community school for students of all abilities, housed in a state of the art building with facilities that fully meet the demands of learning in the 21st Century. We retain an absolute focus on our belief that excellent relationships are vital to achieving effective learning and we are a Lead School for Human Scale Education. The School was awarded ‘Secondary School of the Year’ by the TES in 2016 and in November 2015 we received Ofsted recognition for our commitment to a student-centred school, with inspectors grading our school 'good' with personal development, behaviour and welfare of students rated ‘outstanding’. The report described us as "innovative and imaginative where pupils are very successfully prepared for their future lives." Inspectors also noted that "practically all students respond to the school’s motto of ‘Igniting a Passion for Learning’. This is done by blending positive relationships, in small class sizes, with an exciting curriculum. The school has excellent resources throughout including modern, bright science laboratories.
We are seeking an enthusiastic and conscientious Teacher of Science to join our successful and supportive team. You will be required to teach throughout the age and ability range. The ability to teach KS5 is desirable but not essential. Our results at KS4 have improved rapidly over the past two years – producing a significant rise in the uptake of the sciences at A-level. We now have over 60 students studying A-level sciences in Year 12.
This post is an excellent opportunity for either an NQT or experienced teacher.
The successful candidate will:
• Ignite a Passion for Learning in all our students
• Be creative and dynamic in the classroom at all key stages
• Have the skills to form excellent working relationships with all individuals
