Cornwall has far more than just beaches, surfing and world heritage countryside; we also have some of the best schools in the country with the space, facilities and drive to give the best possible education to the students we serve.

Richard Lander School is situated in Truro to the west of the city centre and serves the beautiful coastal communities of St Agnes, Porthtowan and Perranporth as well as communities closer at hand.  It is an 11-16 community maintained school, which is highly regarded in the area and oversubscribed.  

Truro, the UK’s most Southerly city is a vibrant centre of shopping, culture and impressive architecture right in the heart of Cornwall.  Centre stage is Truro Cathedral with its impressive gothic towers dominating the skyline. In its shadow, a warren of compact streets are home to an impressive array of independent traders. From boutiques to bookshops and designer interiors to delicatessens, this great little city offers a unique shopping experience. The café culture is pretty impressive too, with hip coffee houses, artisan ice creameries and cocktail bars dotted across the centre.  There is a yearlong festival programme, weekly food markets and several art galleries, cultural events and historical attractions.

Our school is welcoming and supportive with strong values; at the heart of our work is a desire to see all our young people develop their gifts and talents to their full potential. Some people call this ambition; we call it 'being the best you can be'.  Staff are on a mission to achieve great outcomes for all our students.  . 

We are looking for an inspirational, dynamic and enthusiastic teacher to join our successful Science Department. You should be an excellent classroom practitioner and able to teach across the age and ability range at Key Stages 3 and 4. This post would be ideal for either a gifted NQT or an experienced professional. If you would like to discuss the post further or arrange a visit to the school please contact Mrs Bond, School Business Manager, on 01872 242744 or email bonds@richardlander.cornwall.sch.uk.

All Applications must be submitted on the official application form and we welcome a covering letter/personal statement.

Richard Lander School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. All appointments are subject to an enhanced DBS disclosure.
