‘This is an outstanding school. Teachers have high expectations of their students, who respond by producing excellent work.’ (OFSTED, June 2015)

‘The school’s work to keep pupils safe and secure is outstanding. Students believe rightly that staff care about them as individuals, and they appreciate the extra time that staff spend on ensuring they achieve the best possible results.’ (OFSTED, June 2015)

Looking for an exciting new challenge? We seek an excellent Senior Science Technician (starting September 2017). This position has arisen due to the expansion of the Academy. This is a key role for the Academy, and we are looking for someone who is passionate about Science in schools, who really wants to make a difference to student lives.

You will have a positive ‘can-do’ attitude, along with a good understanding of the Science GCSE and A Level specifications that our students are studying. You will be required to have experience as a technician in a laboratory environment, preferably in an education context. This role will particularly suit a dynamic individual who is passionate about practical science learning and wants to take a key role in further developing our existing provision for our students.

Our Academy is a vibrant and exciting place to work and was graded as outstanding in all areas by Ofsted in June 2015. In 2016, Magna achieved a Progress 8 score of 0.52, placing us well within the top 5% of highest performing schools nationally. We have a desire to be in the top 1%.

You must fully believe in our philosophy that that every child can achieve academically at the highest level, no matter what their starting point, and have the determination to make this happen. We believe that the best form of pastoral care that we can provide is to ensure that students leave us with the best set of qualifications possible.

The post holder must be able to use their initiative whilst also working as a member of a team.

Excellent interpersonal and organisational skills, resilience and a professional manner are essential.

‘The behaviour of students is outstanding. They are exceptionally keen to learn, and show real enthusiasm in lessons.’ (OFSTED, June 2015)

With great students who behave impeccably, an outstanding team of staff, state of the art facilities, and a very pleasant location in beautiful Dorset, Magna Academy offers an excellent opportunity for an ambitious, talented individual looking to develop their career. Ofsted highlighted our very effective staff training and support and outstanding CPD. We have a very comprehensive, and effective, staff development programme.

‘Students make exceptional progress.’ (OFSTED, June 2015)

We would be delighted to show you around our Academy in order to fully appreciate our excellent learning environment.
