Thank you for your interest in the post of Teacher of Science at Bishop Luffa School. Required from September 2018, we are seeking to appoint a dynamic and forward-thinking Teacher of Science at Key Stage 3-4, with the opportunity to teach Key Stage 5 for a suitable candidate. Candidates from any science specialism will be considered.
The successful applicant will be able to share and enthuse our young people with a love of scientific knowledge and enquiry, and a rigorous approach to supporting them to be creative, reflective and resilient learners. He or she will be passionate and committed, and keen to inspire students to learn skills and explore their own talents, and to share our aspiration to help realise the school’s vision, Always our best because everyone matters.
A fully comprehensive 11-18 Church School of 1440 pupils (273 in the Sixth Form), Bishop Luffa is a vibrant and exciting place to learn and teach, where we want all our pupils and staff to shine. We aspire to be a confident outward-looking Christian community in which every member enjoys creative, dynamic and reflective learning; is supported, challenged and equipped for the future; values and takes responsibility for themselves and others; and relies on and builds supportive and lasting relationships. It is an inspiring and all-consuming vision.
We became a National Teaching School in 2012, leading the Blue Flag Teaching School Alliance, a partnership of 26 Primary, Secondary and Special schools. We converted to Academy status in 2013, and we are looking to build ever-stronger partnerships with our neighbouring schools, the Diocese’s multi-academy trust and beyond.
We want you to make your own special contribution to our young people. And we can offer you outstanding professional development opportunities, a highly committed and effective staff team and extremely well-motivated students.
We believe that this post presents an exciting opportunity and look forward to hearing from you. For full details about the position and a detailed job description please download the information booklet.
