Teacher of Science (Biology)

Easthampstead Park Community SchoolBracknell Forest

Applications from NQTs and more experienced teachers are welcome

We are seeking to appoint a dynamic Teacher of Science (Biology), dedicated to sharing their passion for the subject with the students they teach. The successful candidate will be an excellent teacher, capable of enthusing students of all abilities. They may be an NQT or a more experienced teacher. The ability to teach Combined Science at KS3 and 4 is essential; the ability to teach A Level Biology would be an advantage. In return for your passion, commitment and drive, we offer a highly supportive working environment, students who are intellectually curious and keen to learn, and outstanding continued professional development opportunities, including a first-class NQT support package. Science is a popular subject at our school and uptake in A Level Biology is very healthy. Our Science department benefits from modern accommodation, support from a fantastic team of technicians, and all science teachers have their own classrooms. 

Easthampstead Park is a vibrant school which prides itself on holding traditional values. Our school culture marries high academic expectations with excellent pastoral care and support. The concept of community is at the very heart of our vision; we believe in a three-way partnership between parents, teachers and students, and are proud of our setting and the local community. Teaching and learning drives everything we do. An action-research based approach to teaching and learning has been central to our improvement journey in recent years, and we wholeheartedly believe in investing in staff’s continued professional development in the same way that we expect our teachers to passionately invest in our students. 

This is a very exciting time to join us.  In recent years, we have made excellent progress, and at our last OFSTED inspection (June 2016), we were rated as ‘good’ in all areas.  

“Since her appointment, the Headteacher has focused on making sure that all pupils feel safe, happy and confident so that they learn well. This did not happen overnight but it is now apparent in pupils’ much-improved behaviour and their positive response to the good teaching they receive.”  (OFSTED, 2016)

We aspire to be rated ‘outstanding’, driven by a core belief that all of our students deserve nothing but the best possible teaching and support in order to be happy, healthy and successful. We aim to deliver the best quality teaching and learning in a school where staff and students have respect for, and pride in themselves, their school and their community.

If you feel you have the necessary skills, mindset and determination to join us on our journey towards ‘outstanding,’ we would very much like to hear from you.

Applications will be considered upon receipt, so if you wish to apply you are advised to do so at the earliest possible time. 

Closing date: 9am, Monday 1 March 2021.
