Teacher of Science
Contract start date 24 August 2018 (first teaching day 28 August 2018)
Ashby School is a thriving, successful and over-subscribed 14-19 Academy with 1,700 students on roll including 600 post-16. Conveniently located close to the M42 and M1, within easy reach of several areas of outstanding natural beauty and with the newly created national forest on the doorstep, the school is set in its own attractive grounds in the expanding market town of Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire.
With an excellent reputation within the local community, the latest Ofsted inspection found the school to be a ‘good school’ in all inspection categories. We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and determined scientist with a passion for the subject and the ability to enthuse and engage students and the dedication, commitment and strategies to raise attainment at both Key Stages 4 and 5. An ability to teach either Biology and/or Physics would be desirable, but is not essential.
The post offers an exceptional opportunity for either an experienced practitioner, with a proven record of academic success looking for a new challenge, or an individual who is new to the profession seeking an opportunity in a leading Academy focussed on ensuring that all students achieve or exceed their potential.
We offer an excellent Continued Professional Development programme within a supportive environment and are committed to continuous improvement in both teaching and learning.
Lessons in our Science Department are delivered in a suite of well-resourced, purpose built, laboratories fully equipped with a state of the art sound system, data projectors, interactive white boards, Apple TVs and internet access.
Recently, the school has made major investment in the latest technologies including a state-of-the-art interactive learning hub, further enhancing understanding and promoting creativity in learning.
We are proud of the work we do at Ashby School: if you are passionate about teaching and learning, share our enthusiasm for Science and are seeking to develop your practice in a supportive and dynamic faculty, we would be delighted to hear from you.
A recruitment award may be available for a suitable candidate.
