Closing date:

Ranelagh Church of England SchoolBracknell

Date posted:
Start date: September 2018
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: Competitive
Contract term: Permanent
Suitable for NQTs: Yes


Required for September 2018, an enthusiastic and effective teacher of science, able to teach biology to GCSE and A level. Applications from experienced teachers and NQTs will be considered.

Results in science are excellent. In 2017, GCSE grades were 83% A*- C for Core Science and 83% A*- C for Additional Science. More able students study separate sciences at GCSE where A*-C pass rates in 2017 were 93% in Biology, 88% in Chemistry and 93% in Physics. Biology, Physics and Chemistry are very popular at Advanced level. Students are well motivated and excited by the science they study – around 50 students per year group opt to study triple science at GCSE. The expansion in student numbers for A Level Biology means we need to appoint a teacher who has confidence and ability at this level.

Ranelagh is an 11-18 coeducational, Anglican Academy (converter) which is oversubscribed and has an excellent reputation for academic achievement and positive school ethos.
