We had a successful Ofsted inspection in 2018 and our reputation in the local area means that we are increasingly oversubscribed. We are committed to continuing to work together to be the best we can for our students and our staff. If appointed you will have the opportunity to develop and grow professionally within a very supportive and capable Science Faculty and a thriving, friendly school with an inclusive Christian ethos. Applications are equally welcome from newly qualified teachers and experienced teachers, and from physicists, chemists and biologists. The successful candidate will be able to teach one science to GCSE Level, and all three sciences to KS3 students.
All three sciences are taught separately from Year 7. All KS4 lessons and most KS3 lessons are taught by the relevant subject specialist teachers. The majority of students study AQA GCSE Combined Science (Trilogy) and our more able students take separate Science GCSEs. A number of students also take a GCSE in Astronomy.
We have eight full time and part time science teachers and a modern suite of science labs. Science teachers have the support of two dedicated technicians.
Further details and an application form are available from the school website www.st-aidans.lancs.sch.uk
Applications close at 12 noon on Wednesday, 24th April 2019 with interviews during the week commencing Monday, 29th April 2019.
