Teacher of Science

The Westwood AcademyCoventry

We are looking to appoint, an enthusiastic, creative and passionate teacher of Science into a thriving and highly successful department.  Ideally, candidates will be able to teach all the way through to Post 16 but we will provide full support to the right candidate to enable you to progress into all Key Stages over time. We would like to hear from you if you have skills in Physics but that is most certainly not a prerequisite to applying as we have a highly multi- skilled team of staff already in place; far more important to us is your love of your subject, an enthusiasm to share your skills, knowledge and securing superb relationships with pupils. 

This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced teacher or enthusiastic NQT looking to build a career. We are looking for teachers with a love of their subject, ambition and the ability to engage young people in learning. We provide an exceptional environment in which both teachers and pupils thrive. We will also consider you if you are an unqualified teacher with some teaching experience, exceptional skills, knowledge and a passion for teaching.

The Westwood Academy is part of the Kenilworth Multi-Academy Trust a forward thinking and ambitious trust. We offer a motivating learning environment with an excellent shared CPD programme. We are proud of our academic record and of our pastoral care, which maintains a feeling of community in a small, but growing school. 

The school works tirelessly to ensure that every pupil’s potential is successfully achieved, through excellent teaching, the establishment of positive learning relationships, effective assessment and constructive feedback.

We encourage all potential candidates to come, visit our school, and meet the staff and pupils to fully appreciate our wonderful community.
