Herne Bay High School is currently seeking a motivated and enthusiastic Teacher of Science to join our team in September 2018. We would consider an earlier start for the right candidate. 

What can we offer you? 

As a school that has successfully embedded the new curricula across all core subjects, we offer a comprehensive teaching experience.  We are a school that seeks to invest in the professional advancement and personal well-being of all our staff, and as such we are able to offer you a new teaching experience that will help you to advance your career. We have a proven track record of nurturing and supporting NQTs, many of whom are still with us. 

What will we want you to offer us? 

We look to appoint staff who are ready for the next challenge in their career, have a zeal for their subject in keeping their knowledge up to date, and who are driven and dedicated to nurturing our young people in order to foster in them academic and personal excellence. 

Context of the School 

We are a community school that Ofsted graded as ‘Good’ in our last inspection and that has a largely comprehensive intake. As we have our own sixth form, we offer curriculum across all three key stages.  We offer the EPQ in year 13, which allows all staff to opt to support KS5 curriculum regardless of timetable and subject specialism.  We are a wholly inclusive school and cater for the full ability range of the students in our locality, finding opportunities to develop the demographic that we serve.  We benefit from having superb facilities across the school including such elements as a theatre, cinema, recording studio, sports arena and award winning learning resource centre. Science is central to the school’s commitment to ensuring high quality learning across the curriculum.  We have excellent Science facilities including 8 dedicated fully equipped labs, a large break out space and a dedicated computer area. Most importantly, you would be joining an enthusiastic and supportive team of staff, including both experienced and developing teachers and excellent technicians.

Applications considered on receipt.  

Please do not apply for this position unless you are as committed to safeguarding, the prevention of extremism and radicalisation; and promoting the welfare of children as we are at Herne Bay High School.  Applicants must be willing to undergo comprehensive child protection screening including checks with past employers and the Disclosure & Barring Service.
