Permanent Part Time Post (0.5)


The College seeks to appoint a teacher of Biology to join a strong, thriving and highly successful team who work collegially to achieve outstanding outcomes for the young people in their care. Applications are equally welcome from newly qualified teachers or from more experienced colleagues. An ability to offer a second science at least to S1 and S2 would be welcomed. There may be additional periods available for a colleague able to assist with games but this is not a requirement.


The department comprises the Head of Department working with a full time and part time colleague. The post arises from the promotion of one of these colleagues to a Depute role elsewhere. The department enjoys the use of four dedicated labs within our modern Clavius science building and has the services of a full time Biology technician. Resourcing is outstanding and there is a strong emphasis on practical work to support student learning. In 2017, the department achieved 70.3% A grades at Higher (100% A-C) and 65.8% A grades at National 5 (100% A-C) The subject is very popular but groups are always kept relatively small to assist with individualized support.


St Aloysius’ College is Scotland’s only Jesuit school and is uniquely concerned to develop the whole person in line with its identity to ensure that its young people become ‘men and women for others.’ A highly successful HMC school, it would be the first choice for many within the Glaswegian community but we are not complacent. Consistently strong results at every level, some the finest music and exceptional sporting achievements all have their place but we are most proud of supporting, nurturing and developing the ‘magis’, that is the greater whole. It is an exciting and fast moving place that offers a vibrant and welcoming community to its teachers. Our young people are interesting, driven, supported and supportive and above all fun to teach.
