Teacher of Science
Required for September 2020
Do you want to work in a popular and successful school where staff professional development and well-being is at the heart of our work? We prioritise staff well-being, and our ‘Golden Ticket’ scheme rewards strong staff attendance.
We are looking for a highly qualified, innovative and inspirational teacher of Science, who is passionate about their subject and who is committed to raising aspirations, and securing sustained progress for all of our students.
You will be joining a forward-thinking faculty, who are all dedicated to their work with our students, and to supporting each other through their collaborative work. Our new Head of Science joined us in September 2017, and our Science results went from being below average to having a positive value added of +0.12 in the summer of 2018 and +0.18 in 2019, so it’s an exciting time to be joining us and to have the opportunity to influence Science learning in our school. The post is suitable for an experienced teacher or an NQT, and there would be the option for an NQT to take up post from July 2020.
Gosford Hill School is situated in Kidlington, on the north western edge of Oxford near to the new Oxford Parkway Station (a 50 minute journey from London). We work closely with Oxford University and Oxford Brookes University, and Begbroke Science Park is only a short drive away. We are also fortunate to be at the gateway to the rural Cotswolds. Visits to the school, by arrangement, are welcome.
If you are interested in the post, please complete a Gosford Hill School application form and include a letter (of no more than two sides of A4) outlining your reasons for applying and your suitability for the post. Application forms and further details are available on the school’s website or from Nicola Cooke, Headteacher’s PA. (tel. 01865 374971; email email@example.com. The closing date for receipt of applications is Sunday 26th January 2020. Interviews will take place Friday 31st January 2020. Please submit your completed application to firstname.lastname@example.org
