Are you passionate about science? Are you a dynamic, enthusiastic, creative teacher? Do you want to want to work in an Outstanding school on the edge of Dartmoor National Park? If so we want to hear from you!

Required from September 2019, we are looking for a full time teacher of science to teach across all key stages. The ability to teach A-level is an advantage but not essential.   Whether you are new to teaching or more experienced, we want an outstanding practitioner who can demonstrate their drive and desire for excellence in the classroom and inspire our students to join our supportive and innovative team. 

Science is a popular and high achieving subject and we consistently have a large proportion of students opting for triple science at GCSE. We also have large numbers of students studying at least one science subject at A-level (including Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Psychology and BTEC Applied Science), with excellent exam results.   If this sounds like the school for you then please get in touch.

This post is temporary for one year from September 2019 to cover maternity leave.

Okehampton College was granted Teaching School status April 2016, and established The Dartmoor Teaching Schools Alliance (DTSA), with over 90 schools as members across Devon. The establishment of DTSA has enhanced the quality of teaching and learning for our students and created opportunities for professional development for our staff, so that the opportunities for development and career progression within the organisation are superb.

We are delighted to be part of The Dartmoor Multi- Academy Trust (DMAT) which came into effect on 1st January 2018.  DMAT is a large MAT consisting of a total of 3 secondary schools and 13 primary schools and provides further opportunity for sharing good practice and resources and for staff development.

All schools in The Dartmoor Multi Academy Trust are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

The successful candidate will be required to undertake an Enhanced Disclosure via the Disclosure Barring Service (DBS).
