Rawlins boasts a very strong science team with outstanding A-level and GCSE triple science results.

We are seeking an innovative and enthusiastic science teacher of any discipline to join our flourishing academy. Our ideal candidate will have a love for science and a passion to teaching so that our students thrive.

The science department is a large, vibrant team, with a mix of experienced and new teachers. We are fortunate to be supported by five technicians and two dedicated learning support assistants. Staff are encouraged to take a full role within the team, contributing ideas to discussion in order to ensure the department continually improves; we value our staff voice. 

We are an oversubscribed school with 1530 students on roll, including 320 in post 16 and 38 students in our Skills for Learning unit which provides students with moderate learning difficulties a special school experience within a mainstream environment.  We are also working with the Local Authority to set up a dedicated unit for students with high functioning ASD. We pride ourselves on being a beacon of inclusion. We aim to give our students the best experience of school life, allowing our students to find their talents and their passions through a broad and balanced curriculum but we can’t do this without dedicated, energetic and passionate teachers who put the students at the heart of everything they do.
