Teacher of Biology 

September 2018 or January 2019

Location: Hereford   

Description: Full time and permanent

Hereford Cathedral School seeks to appoint a full-time teacher of Biology from September 2018 or January 2019. Applicants must be able to teach up to and including GCSE and A Level Biology. The post will suit a high-calibre graduate, either an NQT or more experienced teacher, with the enthusiasm, energy and commitment to really inspire their pupils.

The Biology Department teaches approximately a third of all Sixth Form students at AS Level and A Level. Invariably our GCSE results are excellent, with approximately 90% of all candidates achieving A*/A grades in the last five years.

In addition to academic teaching, the successful candidate will also be asked to contribute fully to the pastoral and extra-curricular life of the school. They will need to have first rate interpersonal skills, with the ability to work well and communicate effectively with pupils, colleagues and parents. In addition, energy, vision and high expectations are essential qualities for this position. An ability to teach another subject, although perhaps useful, is not essential.  

The School follows DfE recognised arrangements leading to NQT status and has considerable success in supporting new teachers in their Induction Year.

Hereford Cathedral School has a well-established and thriving extra-curricular programme, and the successful applicant will be expected to play an active part in this.

Application forms can be downloaded from our website www.herefordcs.com and sent with a covering letter to Mrs Cath Knowles , HR Office, Hereford Cathedral School, Old Deanery, The Cathedral Close, Hereford HR1 2NG or email to c.knowles@herefordcs.com

The closing date for applications is 9am Monday 21st May 2018

The School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all members of staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Appointments are subject to DBS clearance, satisfactory employment references and pre-employment checks.
