Ashby School is a thriving, successful and over-subscribed 14-19 Academy with 1,700 students on roll including 600 post-16.  Conveniently located close to the M42 and M1, within easy reach of several areas of outstanding natural beauty and with the newly created national forest on the doorstep, the school is set in its own attractive grounds in the expanding market town of Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire.  With an excellent reputation within the local community a recent Ofsted inspection found the school to be a ‘good school’ in all inspection categories. 

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and determined Biologist with a passion for their subject and the ability to enthuse and engage students and the dedication, commitment and strategies to raise attainment at both Key Stages 4 and 5.

The post offers an exceptional opportunity for an experienced practitioner, with a proven record of academic success looking for a new challenge, or an individual who is new to the profession seeking an opportunity in a leading Academy focussed on ensuring that all students achieve or exceed their potential. 

We offer an excellent Continued Professional Development programme within a supportive environment and are committed to continuous improvement in both teaching and learning.

Lessons in our Science Department are delivered in a suite of well-resourced, purpose built, laboratories fully equiped with a state of the art sound system, data projectors, interactive white boards, Apple TVs and internet access.

Recently the school has made major investment in the latest technologies including a state of the art interactive 3-D learning hub, further enhancing understanding and promoting creativity in learning.

We are proud of the work we do at Ashby School: if you are passionate about teaching and learning, share our enthusiasm for Biology and are seeking to develop your practice in a supportive and dynamic faculty, we would be delighted to hear from you.
