The Governors are inviting applications from experienced or newly qualified teachers of Science. At The County High School, Leftwich, there is a strong tradition of high quality induction and continuing professional development so the post can be adapted to suit an entrant new to the profession or a colleague with recent experience.  We are looking for an enthusiastic and dynamic Science teacher who will inspire and motivate students to succeed at Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4.  An ability to teach Physics to Key Stage 4 is desirable. 

This post is suitable for an NQT, RQT or someone who is looking to take a first step into a leadership role.  A strong desire to motivate students and staff to achieve excellent progress is crucial in an environment in which “Pupils display a thirst for learning” and there is “…first-rate behaviour in classrooms and around the academy” (Ofsted, 2016).   

 The County High School, Leftwich is in a formal partnership with Sir John Deane’s College, a local outstanding 6th Form College with a tradition of high academic performance, as part of The Sir John Brunner Foundation. Sir John Deane’s College, with a Level 3 VA score of +0.53, is the leading 6th Form College in the country.  The successful candidate will therefore have an opportunity to experience A-Level provision if desired. 

In 2019 students left The County High School, Leftwich with ‘Well Above Average’ progress – as measured by the Progress 8 calculation (+0.80). The Progress 8 Score of +0.80 places The County High School, Leftwich in the top 2% of schools nationally for student progress.
