Required as soon as possible a qualified and enthusiastic Science Teacher with a Chemistry specialism who wishes to work in a unique, supportive environment.
Sancton Wood is a small, family friendly school with pupils aged 1-16 years. Recognised for its outstanding contribution to the social and emotional development of each individual child.
The school is now embarking on an ambitious five-year plan, which will see its profile, raised within the Cambridge landscape of independent education and which will significantly develop provision. Key elements of that plan are the improvement and development of facilities, and the enrichment of both the curricular and extra-curricular provision. Starting from September 2016 we will have more subject choices for GCSE, more sports and teams, more clubs and extra-curricular options and more friends to welcome to the Sancton family.
Sancton Wood emphasises the core curriculum of English, Maths, Science and Languages. Physics, Chemistry and Biology are taught separately and our aim is to give each student a sound scientific foundation using a mix of practical investigation, written work and class discussion. We have well-designed laboratories in addition to being able to visit the University of Cambridge’s Cavendish Laboratory and Botanical Gardens.
Sancton Wood is part of the Minerva Group of Schools and is very well supported.
If you are passionate about teaching Chemistry and being a part of this influential department, we would like to hear from you. In return we offer a competitive salary and a range of benefits.
Sancton Wood is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be subject to an enhanced DBS check.
