Are you a newly qualified Science teacher seeking a supportive, ambitious school in which to begin your career?

Who are we?
King’s School is an ecumenical Christian School in the Diocese of Chichester, affiliated to the Church of England. The school opened its doors to its first cohort of students in September 2013 and there are currently approximately 700 students in years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 with a team of over 60 teachers and support staff. In September 2019 the school moved into its new, purpose built site in Hangleton. This was the culmination of six years of hard work and planning, and marked the beginning of an exciting new stage in the school’s development. Our next milestone will be the opening of our Sixth Form in 2023.
Our aim is to provide a high quality education in a caring Christian environment in which every student is known and cared for. We are committed to outstanding academic performance and to fostering a love of learning. Our work and relationships are based upon the four core Christian values of Love, Forgiveness, Respect and Responsibility and through these we encourage and support every student and member of staff to be the best that they can be.
You can find out more about the department in the attached letter from Mrs Abigail Coles, Head of Science.
