Our outstanding school is looking for an enthusiastic, proactive, and highly organised Science Technician, to join our team of technicians who support teaching and learning in the Science Department. The successful applicant will mainly be involved in the preparation of KS3 lessons in biology, chemistry and physics. An interest in Science is essential. Previous experience as a Science Technician, a Level 3 Science qualification or a background in science, are an advantage but not essential.

The Weald is an outstanding, high achieving, popular and oversubscribed 11-18 comprehensive school, situated in the heart of the West Sussex countryside, 10 minutes from Horsham, 35 minutes from Guildford and Brighton, and an hour by train to London. The school has an excellent record of academic and pastoral achievement and we pride ourselves in creating a caring and respectful ethos where every child is important. The school was judged to be “Outstanding in all areas” by Ofsted. Our three year rolling average Progress 8 results places us in the top 20% of schools nationally for progress.

If you relish the opportunity of working in a supportive and stimulating professional environment, The Weald School would welcome your application. We also welcome visits to the school from interested candidates.
