Teacher of Chemistry - Part-time (0.5)

Haberdashers' AdamsNewport, Shropshire

Haberdashers' Adams

“An Outstanding School” in all four categories – Ofsted November 2013

We are a boy's school with co-educational Sixth Form. There are currently 960 pupils on roll; approximately 100 of these are boarders. The Sixth Form has about 340 students of whom just over 100 are girls.

As a result of our school expansion we require additional teaching capacity in the Chemistry Department in each of the next three years: we need to teach an extra class in Years 7-9 from September 2021 and there will then be extra sets in Year 10 and Year 11 in September 2022 and September 2023 respectively. Hence, although this position is offered as a fixed- term contract for 2021-22, it is highly likely that the post holder will be in a position to apply to continue teaching at the School in the following years.

The Department is not looking for a particular teaching style but rather someone who is able to ensure that all pupils reach their academic potential and who is also willing to share good practice. We are not expecting all candidates to have prior teaching experience of GCSE and/or A- level, but seeking someone who has the academic ability to teach and ensure the progress of bright pupils. We are also seeking a candidate who has the desire to be fully involved in the co-operative development of the Department’s programmes of study and teaching resources, working as a member of a team towards the Department’s aim of providing the best possible education for all of its pupils.

We also wish to appoint someone who is interested in being involved in the wide range of extra-curricular activities that are an important part of the life of this school.

Newly qualified teachers will follow a full programme of induction to prepare for Qualified Teacher Status. For more experienced applicants there is a programme of staff development and in-service training in the school; we are committed to the professional development of all our teaching staff.

For further information please contact the Deputy Head i/c Curriculum, Dr Pack, on peter.pack@adamsgs.uk

Closing date for applications is 4pm on Wednesday 24th February 2021.

Interviews will be held during week commencing 1st March 2021.  We will advise nearer the time if they will be via  Zoom.
