University Academy Long SuttonLincolnshire

Teacher of Science

Required for September 2022 


The University Academy Long Sutton is a popular 11 - 16 Academy in the rural market town of Long Sutton, and is part of The University of Lincoln Academy Trust. This may bring the opportunity to work across 2 sites.                                                                                                            

Due to the expansion of the school and subsequently the department, we hope to appoint a dynamic Teacher of Science who is able to inspire pupils, be innovative and achieve outstanding results. This is an ideal and exciting opportunity for both newly qualified and more experienced teachers. The Academy provides extensive opportunities for Professional Development including links to LTSA, LLP and GPTSA which would particularly benefit newly qualified teachers and those wishing to progress to management. Indeed, a TLR might be available for a suitably experienced candidate.

The Science Department has had significant investment over recent years and is supported by a dedicated Technician. As well as the regular laboratories, the Department also has tiered lecture style facilities. The Department is well resourced and laptops are provided to all staff. KS3 pupils follow an inspiring two-year practical course leading to Combined or Triple Science in KS4. There has been a significant investment over the summer on new texts both at KS3 and KS4 including an e-learning package. It is also excepted that the refurbishment of the Science labs will be completed by summer 2023 following a successful bid which has attracted over a million pound of investment.

Early applications are encouraged. We reserve the right to interview and appoint prior to the closing date of the advertisement, should we identify an appropriate candidate.
