Teacher of Chemistry, Physics or Science

St Edmund's CollegeHertfordshire

(Required for September 2021)

We are seeking to appoint an ambitious and enthusiastic teacher of Chemistry, Physics or Science to ignite a passion for learning in all our students and to encourage them to be challenged by the complexities of the Universe.

The Science department encompasses the three separate disciplines of Biology, Chemistry and Physics. It is housed in a block comprising nine laboratories and dedicated preparation and support facilities. Science is taught as a combined discipline in Years 7 and 8, but as separate subjects by specialist teachers from Year 9 onwards.

St Edmund’s College welcomes all applications and holds a sponsor licence as a UK employer of non-EEA Nationals. The successful candidate must be able to teach General Science to KS3 and to teach Chemistry or Physics to GCSE would be an advantage. Applications from new entrants to the profession or from more experienced teachers are equally welcome.

St Edmund’s is England's oldest Catholic school offering an all-round co-education for students from 3 to 18 and for families from all faiths. The College offers modern facilities in a magnificent country setting in rural Hertfordshire, providing a safe and stimulating environment for young minds.

There are many opportunities to contribute to the lively co-curricular life of the College, which is situated in rural East Hertfordshire.
