Tewkesbury School is a successful 11-18 community school with excellent facilities. The focus of the school is to develop well-rounded individuals through a wealth of opportunities both within the classroom and beyond.
We wish to appoint an enthusiastic and creative member of staff to teach Science across all three Key Stages. An ability to teach Chemistry at KS5 is desirable.
This vacancy provides an excellent opportunity to work in a high quality and well-resourced environment and to become part of a highly motivated and visionary team of teachers. The successful candidate will be able to apply a creative and proactive approach to their teaching enabling students to engage and flourish in the subject.
Science is a popular and successful subject with a large proportion of students opting to study the three separate sciences at GCSE level. Teachers tend to teach their specialism from KS4 upwards to improve continuity and progression to A-level.
All science teaching takes place in one of the 15 dedicated science laboratories, with teachers usually operating from their own laboratory. This is supported by 4 highly skilled and experienced technicians and a dedicated Science HLTA. The science faculty teaching staff is made up of 14 supportive, experienced teachers.
Applications are welcome from those who have a passion for developing individuals to reach their full potential.
Teachers who are newly qualified are encouraged to apply, as are those with more experience. The school offers a comprehensive NQT program and excellent opportunities for career development for all staff.
We are committed to safeguarding children: the successful candidate will be required to undertake an enhanced DBS with list checks via the DBS registration.
