Required for April 2018
We are seeking to appoint a highly-qualified, dynamic, innovative and committed teacher of science who is passionate about their subject. This is an opportunity to join a strong and forward-thinking department that invests heavily in its teacher’s development.
The science department currently comprises 4 FTE teachers and the post is suitable for both new entrants to the profession and applicants with experience. What is important to us is that we appoint someone who is totally committed to the post and can demonstrate the ability to deliver consistently good lessons with the potential to become outstanding across the 11-16 age range.
The Axholme Academy is a successful, forward thinking and friendly school serving the market town of Crowle and surrounding villages. In July 2017 Ofsted confirmed that the academy continues to provide a good education for students and recognised that the academy has, “Successfully created a culture in which your pupils want to succeed”.
The Academy is a founder member of The Northern Lincolnshire Education Consortium Ltd and a strategic partner in the Leading Learning Forward Teaching School Alliance and the Blueprint Alliance Teaching School. These links will provide the successful candidates with opportunities for excellent professional development and establish high impact partnerships across the region. Science CPD is tailored to develop the needs of teachers and bespoke training packages are organised to include long and short term programmes across all science disciplines. For example physics and chemistry for non-specialists, maths for the new science GCSE’s and microbiology are just a few of the courses we have invested in recently.
