Teacher of Science

Crown Hills Community CollegeLeicester

Dear prospective applicant,

In the top 12% of schools nationally, Crown Hills Community College blends a 70-year history of inclusive education with an innovative, forward-looking approach to providing a state education like no other to 1,500 students from inner city backgrounds.

The School now seeks to appoint an exceptional individual to work in our Science Faculty. This vacancy has presented itself due to the retirement of the current post holder.

To be successful, you will be smart, hungry and humble. We recruit our staff based on attitude as well as skill and if you possess the right balance, we will support you on your journey to leadership.

We welcome applications from those with an educational background across the private and public sector.

Over the past three years, the school has changed significantly, not only in its performance but also in the way it operates. We are not interested in the OFSTED grade or judgement and it is not something that we use to threaten staff with nor do we use it to set policy. We do what is best for the staff and the students underpinned by a set of clear values and we trust that everything else will take care of itself. I would therefore, urge you to visit us and to look at our website and the video about what it is that we stand for and why you would want to join us - https://www.crownhills.com/join-us/

To be successful, you will possess a proven record of providing High Quality lessons and supporting students to make exceptional progress. You will have the passion for science and understand how powerful subject knowledge can change lives.

Our mission is simple, we want every student to be the best that they can be, thrive in the best possible career and contribute positively to society.

This position is pivotal, as it will empower our students to be the scientists and engineers of the future. I truly believe that when leaders lead by staying true to their values, the impossible becomes possible.

You will see from our website that our three key values permeate all that we do and have allowed us to grow from strength to strength:

Aspiration - Be the best you can be

Commitment - Do what it takes for as long as it takes

Success - Be ready to take on the world

We are extremely pleased with the outcomes for our students but we believe that they can achieve even better:

                               9-7             Subject Progress Index

Biology              67.7%                    +0.40

Chemistry      77.4%                    +0.93

Physics              77.4%                   +0.64

                                 9-7                9-5                  9-4              Subject Progress Index

Combined        10.1%           37.8%           56.8%                       +0.40

As Principal, it has always been my philosophy to grow and nurture new talent so that we create the next generation of leaders, it is something that I have done throughout my career, and this role will support the successful individual on their journey.

If you have high aspirations for children from deprived backgrounds and experience of delivering educational excellence by providing a high quality education for the most vulnerable of students, we would like to hear from you.
