Teacher of Science


We are seeking to  appoint a full-time science teacher for the start of the school year in  August 2018. The position will be a two year renewable contract.

Science  is a popular subject within the school. The majority of our learners  will take individual sciences at iGCSE and we typically have ten IB  Higher classes. .

The popularity of the subject is matched by the  success of our students. Many graduates will continue to major in  related disciplines in the world’s highest ranked universities and we  have a well-defined pathway to medicine and health related higher  education courses.  

From August 2018, we enter our candidacy  year for MYP. We are therefore looking for a teacher who has knowledge  and experience that will help us create and grow excellent inquiry based  learning.

There is also an opportunity to teach IBDP Biology,  Chemistry or Physics. Please outline your experience and suitability for  teaching in any of these programmes.


Bachelor Degree in  Education, or Bachelor Degree in any subjects with PGCE (Postgraduate  Certificate of Education), or equivalent

2-4 years teaching experience within a recognised educational organisation

Knowledge  of teaching MYP and DP Science is preferred, however, we will consider  applications from candidates with experience of equivalent programmes.  

Above  all, you will be an excellent teacher and/or leader who shows a  willingness to contribute to and learn from the rest of your team. You  will have experience of contributing to curriculum change and be willing  to explore and embrace the philosophy of our programmes.

Closing Date: 25 Apr 2018
