“Success is a science; if you have the right conditions, you get the result.”
So said Oscar Wilde and we say the same.
Whether you’re an NQT or you have been teaching biology for decades, to really inspire the next generation of scientists you need an environment with the right conditions. You need an environment where pupils genuinely want to learn. An environment in which your colleagues are as geeky about your subject as you are. And, if you want to keep developing, you need the right professional development opportunities.
Barr Beacon School offers you this – and more.
We are a school where being a ‘geek’ is not a bad thing – in fact, it’s cool, for both pupils and staff. Our pupils are exceptionally well behaved: you really will spend your planning time on instilling a love of biology, not just controlling behaviour.
We have a plethora of professional development opportunities. For instance, if you want to take a Masters degree (delivered on our school site by the University of Worcester) we will fully fund it. Our CPD is nationally-renowned and bespoke training packages mean you can advance quickly to the next stage of your career.
Whatever your level of experience in the classroom, it’s your passion for your subject that counts. We prize love of learning above all else.
Parents love what we do. It’s why we’re so oversubscribed, with 4 times the amount of applications for every place we have. Teachers love working here too, which means pupils love their learning. We offer triple science to a large proportion of our key stage 4 pupils and we always run healthy-sized groups of A level biology so you will have lots of opportunities to specialise. Every member of the team is given the opportunity to teach the full age range if they want to.
We need a talented teacher of biology who has the passion to provide pupils with the best possible experience of this fascinating subject. Could it be you?
We urge you to visit us. There’s a real buzz about the place which no amount of words can convey, so please come to see Barr Beacon School for yourself.
