Teacher of Science
TMS / UPS + TLR attaching for exceptional candidate
We are looking for an enthusiastic Science teacher to join a successful Science Department and supportive team of staff with the capacity and commitment to raise student achievement even further.
The team of Science teachers at St Catherine's College teach across the full age and ability range. There is also the opportunity to teach Triple Science in a preferred specialism, all our pupils take Triple Science for the new GCSE specifications. We aim to foster a love of Science in the pupils we teach, by planning interesting and challenging lessons that engage all learners.
There is an open, friendly and collegiate atmosphere within the department. We believe it is crucial that new members of the team are welcomed and supported. All teachers contribute to the development of shared resources, and we regularly run internal inset sessions. This approach has seen us develop many innovative new teaching strategies.
We have a condensed two year Key Stage 3 and, therefore, a three year Key Stage 4 where we teach the AQA trilogy syllabus. We set pupils by ability at the start of Year 7, and we structure the curriculum pathway to allow regular opportunities for pupils to move between groups.
Ongoing improvement in the teaching and learning of Science at St Catherine's College is of the utmost importance.

A friendly, supportive and caring staff team
A fabulous staff room with complimentary tea and coffee
The opportunity of additional paid lunch time duties accompanied by a complimentary lunch
A cafe that serves at breakfast, break and lunch using freshly sourced ingredients
