We are looking for a committed and enthusiastic teacher of science to join our very strong department.

Ernest Bevin College is an 11-19 boys school with a mixed sixth form of 350 students based in state of the art buildings especially in STEM subjects, and with good transport links. Our last Ofsted inspection in October 2011 judged the school to be OUTSTANDING.

We are one of only 4 schools in the country to have been awarded STEM status, the only school in London to have a Combined Cadet Force on site and we have recently formed a Cricket Academy.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and staff. The position is subject to a DBS check.
