The resultant all-round education develops our pupils into well-rounded individuals who challenge themselves to ‘being our best’ in every aspect of life at the school, and beyond. Our innovative teaching and subsequent success starts in the Prep School and runs all the way through the Senior School and Sixth Form.

St Joseph’s College has a proud history of strong results within the Sciences and seeks to appoint an outstanding Teacher of Chemistry. For the right candidate there will also be opportunity to become the Assistant Head of Faculty.

Science is taught as a combined subject at KS3 and then as separate subjects at GCSE and A-Level.

At A-Level all Sciences attract at least one set of students in both the Lower and Upper Sixth. We have also begun to teach BTEC Applied Science at Level 3. 

Applications are invited for the position of Teacher of Chemistry to support the Head of Science in ensuring high standards of delivery of the subject at KS3, KS4 and KS5. The successful candidate will therefore be a dynamic and inspiring teacher who has a proven track record of excellent teaching.
