Trinity school is a dynamic, forward thinking and oversubscribed mixed Church of England learning community for pupils aged 11-18. Teaching is motivating and fun, and learning opportunities are not confined to the classroom; we offer a range of educational opportunities for all our pupils. We seek to challenge our pupils’ perceptions and aim to equip them with the skills to be independent and resilient learners. The school is a member of the Trinitas Academy Trust, a collaboration of one secondary school and five primary schools all within close range in the London Borough of Bexley.
“The school cares keenly for its pupils. Relationships between staff and pupils are excellent. The individual attentions given to pupils helps them to thrive and leaves them well prepared for the next phase of their education.”
“Pupils are committed learners; they want to do well and encourage each other to work hard.”
(Ofsted, February 2016)
At Trinity, we can offer you an environment where “behaviour is outstanding” which is “reflected in pupils’ excellent conduct around the site, the respect they show their teachers and the courteous manner in which they greet visitors to the school.” We provide excellent training and an induction support programme for new staff and NQTs, as well as the highest quality professional development through the extensive use of professional networks across the Trust. This is a school with a harmonious working environment and supportive colleagues, which has a very strong, shared Christian ethos.
Your new role:
You will be an experienced or Newly Qualified Teacher of Science who can plan, teach, and assess their specialism to at least KS4. The ability to teach up to KS5 would be an advantage, but we also welcome applications from those able to offer only up to KS4. You will be responsible for ensuring the effective teaching and learning of students, instilling in them a love of science. A specialism in Chemistry would be desirable but not essential. The school is looking for an exceptional teacher who can create a supportive, encouraging and safe learning environment for all pupils of diverse backgrounds and abilities.
What you will need to succeed:
You will need to exhibit a passion for Science and radiate creativity and enthusiasm in the classroom. You will have high expectations of yourself and the pupils, and demonstrate a flexible approach to working with other members of staff. You will be committed to improving the learning outcomes for all pupils in the school.
Trinity School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and all staff and volunteers are expected to share that commitment. Please note that the successful applicant will require an enhanced DBS check.
