Underpinned by our Christian ethos, at Trinity Academy we believe each of our students to be uniquely gifted, infinitely precious and morally responsible. Our goal is that students should gain wisdom, not just knowledge, and we therefore take greater delight in our students’ emerging character than in their grades. Of course, there is no need to choose between the two; academic excellence is promoted by virtuous character – and character strengthened by the pursuit of excellence. Our mission, therefore, is to encourage academic, moral and spiritual development within a Christian framework.
We are a vibrant community, with strong and fulfilling relationships between students and their teachers, and a growing co-curricular programme. Whilst we serve an area of relatively high disadvantage, former students have gone on to become world-class in their field. Understanding each child to be created in the image of God, we explicitly challenge low expectations and raise aspirations.
We are seeking to appoint, from January 2020 (or sooner if possible), an excellent Teacher of Science, ideally with a specialism in Biology.
To be successful, you will have high professional standards and excellent subject knowledge, with the ability to teach inspirational lessons across all key stages. Furthermore, you will have drive and determination in order to to engage and motivate students.
The department boasts 12 fully equipped laboratories, of which two have a computer suite and the department is supported by two technicians.
The welfare of our staff is important to us, we subscribe to Care First Lifestyle and are firmly committed to CPD. We offer a comprehensive programme with daily meal allowance, superb promotion prospects and career development. We also enjoy outstanding accommodation within extensive grounds; good motorway links put us in easy reach of Leeds, Sheffield and Hull.
Visits from prospective candidates are warmly welcomed.
