The International English School of Castellón is currently recruiting for a teacher of science to join our successful team. The postholder will be responsible for guiding our students through KS3 science and IGCSE/A level separate science courses, depending on subject specialism. You will join a team of 3 other full time science teachers in the secondary school. This post has become available due to the very late resignation of the current postholder due to personal circumstances.
Our school is a friendly and popular independent British school located on the Mediterranean coast, north of Valencia. Castellón is a small, safe city with a wonderful coastline and good access to rail networks and airports.
We provide an education based on the 'British curriculum' to children from one to eighteen years of age. 88% of our children are Spanish and they experience a real immersion in English in school, learning English language in the same way as we acquire our own mother tongue.
The secondary curriculum is based on the National Curriculum in KS3 and Cambridge IGCSE and A level programmes in KS4 and KS5. We prepare pupils for external examinations allowing access to universities in Spain, the UK and other countries.
We currently offer IGCSEs in Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Combined Science and at A level we run Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Marine Science. We have considerable flexibility in our science team meaning that to a certain extent the teaching responsibilities can be designed around the skillset of the new post holder.
We are proud to offer our pupils a great variety of opportunities as part of their school curriculum. These experiences support both their emotional and academic growth. Children develop their talents and personal qualities in a caring environment where they are encouraged to flourish through personal reflection, challenge and support. We help, guide and encourage our pupils to develop confidence and self-discipline. The role of the teacher in our school is therefore much more than just teaching a subject, it involves enthusing, inspiring and caring for each child.
Further information can be found on our school website www.iepgroupcastellon.com and in the downloadable application pack, which has information about the school, conditions and the local area.
Please apply using the TES application form, although CVs and covering letters are welcome.
Applicants should be aware that we may begin shortlisting prior to the closing date as the post is currently being covered internally and therefore is available immediately for an available candiate or otherwise after a notice period is served.
