Teaching is the most rewarding job in the world. We have the opportunity to change students’ lives for the better and you could make a positive impact at St Peter’s School.
We are a forward thinking and rapidly improving, “good” school that is creating a legacy of learning for our community. Our students Learn, Aspire and Exceed as they work with our highly skilled teaching and associate staff supporting and guiding them.
St Peter’s is part of the CAM Academy Trust which offers students and staff fantastic potential to collaborate, share and develop a wide range of teaching and learning across the schools in the trust. As a family of schools, we support, share and challenge each other to improve the future lives of all our young people.
We are currently seeking to over staff our existing Science department by employing a dynamic and inspiring Teacher of Science to join our team in motivating and supporting our students to ensure outstanding attainment. Science is a successful subject results in 2018 demonstrated a positive progress score overall. We offer four A-level options, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Applied Science, which again have a strong achievement record, with most already showing a positive value added score. The opportunity to teach KS5 would be available for the right candidate.
We are a supportive, hardworking and friendly team of staff with a desire to raise student achievement beyond expectation. We have extensive resources, including some newly refurbished labs and new practical equipment, to support teaching and learning and are constantly reflecting on our curriculum to make further improvements. In science, teamwork is key to everything we do, we work collaboratively together to improve our teaching and the experience every child has in science. We are seeking someone who will show their enthusiasm and be able to demonstrate their commitment by contributing to the innovation of pedagogy in our flourishing Science team. We work closely with the other science departments in the trust, sharing resources and supporting each other with any training requirements.
St Peter’s prides itself in the professional development available to staff, we have had a number of staff complete a wide range of courses including: NPQML, physics enhancement courses and training with exam board providers as well as in house training.
We are based in Huntingdon, just 12 miles north of Cambridge with its own mainline station connecting with London in less than an hour.
