Required for September 2019
Teacher of Science
An excellent opportunity has arisen to join a very successful and forward thinking Science Department within a Teaching School which is thriving, enthusiastic with real team spirit. Our results have been consistently high year on year. In 2018 the proportion of students achieving grade 7 and above was: Biology 64%, Chemistry 58%, and Physics 59%. At A Level, the proportion of students achieving A*-C was: Biology 100%, Chemistry 79% and Physics 56%
Applicants will have had experience of teaching across the ability range at KS3 and KS4 and will need to be passionate, well organised, enthusiastic and hardworking, having high expectations of students and colleagues.
Successful candidates will be given the opportunity to develop the teaching resources and other assessment materials. The post is suitable for an NQT or somebody with a little more experience. The ability to teach Chemistry to GCSE is very desirable although not essential.
We provide a first class INSET programme at Bishop Challoner, which supports the professional development of teachers at all stages in their careers.
Bishop Challoner is a very successful, heavily over-subscribed mixed 11-19 comprehensive school in the South of Birmingham. We were designated one of the first 100 Teaching Schools in the country. This is a measure of the high achievement of the school and its excellence in training and developing staff. This will allow exciting opportunities for any newly appointed members of staff.
Bishop Challoner is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. It has policies and procedures to ensure that this occurs. The successful applicant will be required to undertake an enhanced DBS check.
