Hereford Cathedral School seeks to appoint a full-time teacher of Biology from September 2017 or January 2018. 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.    

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.   

An application form and information pack may be downloaded from the school website   

Completed applications should be accompanied by a covering letter and sent to Mrs Cath Knowles, Hereford Cathedral School, Old Deanery, The Cathedral Close, Hereford HR1 2NG or to 

The deadline for applications is Monday 19th June 2017

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.
