William Edwards is a very popular, oversubscribed 11-16 school, judged ‘outstanding’ by OfSTED.

Core subject pupil outcomes are significantly above the national average. We are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic teacher to join our highly committed Science team. We will welcome applications from people at any stage of their career as we know that the training and development we can offer is second to none and with a new trust Secondary Free School recently approved by the DfE, continued career progression in the future is a real possibility.
The Science Department is well resourced and has seen significant recent investment including new laboratories, iPads for all staff and Apple TV in every room. The Department also benefits from highly experienced full-time technicians and is currently engaged in a range of work to further develop pedagogy across the department and school.
The school offers a comprehensive induction programme for all new staff and a strong commitment to continuing staff development and training through the Teaching School.
If you have energy and passion in abundance and would relish the opportunity to join our Science team, we look forward to hearing from you. Salary and responsibility are negotiable for the right candidate and we would welcome pre-application visits.
