Required for April/September 2018
Teacher of Science (Biology, Chemistry or Physics)
St Paul’s Way Trust School, in association with Queen Mary University of London (QMUL), is seeking to appoint an outstanding and creative teacher of Science. The post would be suitable for an NQT or a more experienced teacher who would like to develop their skills and expertise in a large, well-resourced Science faculty. TLR positions within the faculty are available for suitably experienced candidates.
This is an excellent career opportunity for a colleague who is passionate about the entitlement of young people to a rich and varied Science curriculum. Working within a vibrant and highly successful faculty, you will be an outstanding classroom teacher with a passionate commitment to the progress of all students in our fully comprehensive and heavily oversubscribed school. The successful candidate will have an unwavering belief in the potential of every student. (S)he will do what it takes to ensure that students achieve their best, and will have the contagious enthusiasm for the subject which excites and motivates students.
Our exceptional links with QMUL, King’s College London, The University of Warwick, The UCL Institute of Education and the University of East London help shape an inspirational science curriculum including that we are London’s only Faraday science school. Science is an increasingly popular subject at KS4 and KS5 with the majority of students in our expanding academic sixth form studying at least one of the sciences.
Members of the Science team may also, if interest is expressed, have the opportunity to work with academic colleagues at QMUL, to extend their own subject expertise (through our innovative Teacher Fellowship scheme) and to deliver a unique foundation year medical course at QMUL’s Whitechapel campus with honorary lecturer status.
The excellent sixth form teaching has been enhanced by the creation of the Science Research Centre. This has allowed our sixth form students to engage and participate with real research through the Authentic Biology Project.
St Paul's Way Trust has developed a reputation for doing things differently and with good reason. The combination of world leading Universities and Corporate Trust partners collaborating with talented and ambitious teachers, support staff and educational leaders has transformed provision and opened up remarkable opportunities for our young people and staff. St Paul's Way Trust School, a National Teaching School - outstanding in every Ofsted category, now moves into its next exciting phase of expansion as the founding school in the newly formed ‘University School’s Trust’ a Multi-academy Trust led by Queen Mary University of London (lead sponsor).
Our award winning new building is situated in the heart of East London. Professor Brian Cox OBE is our Patron.
If you would like to play your part in delivering outstanding provision for our students, whilst receiving the very best support to develop your career, then we would very much like to hear from you.
