INDEPENDENT CO-EDUCATIONAL BOARDING & DAY SCHOOL FOR 425 PUPILS
AGED 11 -18
TEACHER OF BIOLOGY
Required SEPTEMBER 2020
Box Hill School is a co-educational community of 425 girls and boys aged 11 to 18, whose educational ideals and practice are designed to get the best out of each student. The school follows the philosophy of Kurt Hahn, founder of Gordonstoun in Scotland: while placing academic work at the heart of a school, Hahn stressed the importance of an all-round education as a preparation for life.
The Science Department teaches Biology, Chemistry and Physics to GCSE level as well as offering a Single, combined sciences GCSE. All three sciences are offered at both IB and A level, as well as Environmental Systems and Societies (EVS) as an option in the IB only.
GCSEs and A levels follow the AQA exam board. Box Hill School also has a thriving International Study centre (ISC) and all sciences are offered at GCSE level in the ISC.
A willingness to get involved in the delivery of science to students with English as a second language would be highly advantageous. The Science Department comprises nine teaching staff, who are supported by four excellent technicians as well as a highly devoted and organised SEND department.
Science classes are small, with no more than twenty students in each though the average is much lower than this. In years 7 and 8, students follow a bespoke curriculum based on Smart Science. In year 9, students are taught by subject specialists and follow each science separately, using a bespoke scheme that has been developed as an acceleration onto GCSE science and to promote scientific thinking and reasoning skills.
Box Hill School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We expect all staff, volunteers and visitors to share our commitment. We are an equal opportunities employer and the successful candidate will be expected to undergo an Enhanced Criminal Records Bureau check.
