The Role

This is an exciting opportunity for a Teacher of Science to join a strong school with ambitions for improving our Ofsted rating from 'Good' to 'Outstanding'.  This post will be ideal for a Teacher of Science ready for their first post of responsibility or a current manager interested in a new opportunity.  They will join a strong faculty with a supportive head of department.  

The School

We are an oversubscribed, expanding school, rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted with consistently positive outcomes at GCSE.  We are seeking to employ an inspiring and enthusiastic Second in our Science Department.  The successful candidate will be able to deliver sciences at key stages 3 and 4, Combined Science and, we anticipate, offer A-level specialism in Physics, Chemistry or Biology. We especially welcome applications from Physics and Chemistry disciplines, although applications from Biology specialists will also, of course, be welcomed.

The successful candidate will join a teaching team of 8 staff.  Oldbury Wells has established A-level teaching in Chemistry, Biology, Physics and Psychology and teaches both Triple Science and Combined Sciences at GCSE.

We have a very good track record in terms of examination results with excellent Progress 8, Attainment 8 and VA scores.  We are in a position of strength as a school, with our students successful across the range of groups and across the full range of subjects.  Oldbury Wells School also has an established and flourishing Sixth Form, recently relaunched and expanded as Bridgnorth Sixth Form.

Oldbury Wells School is committed to safeguarding and protecting the welfare of children and young people and therefore expects all staff to share this commitment.  All appointments are subject to a satisfactory DBS check.
