We are seeking an outstanding and passionate Science teacher (preferably a Chemistry specialist) to join our successful team in September 2018. With over 20 members of staff (teaching across all three scientific disciplines in Key Stages 3-5), we are excited to work with a highly motivated and enthusiastic applicant, who can further enhance our wide-ranging Science curriculum. You will also play a key role in helping to further develop an existing culture for engaging practical science, both in lessons and extracurricular enrichment.
Science at St. Wilfrid’s is an exciting and engaging subject. We have an established and highly successful Science sixth form portfolio, covering a range of both A-levels and BTEC Nationals. Within the Science faculty and across the school, staff and students form an enthusiastic and happy community who work together towards high achievement. As a highly motivated collective, in Science we strive for excellence in everything we do, aiming to provide consistently outstanding teaching and learning experiences for our students, through the use of innovative and forward-thinking approaches to scientific pedagogy.
We welcome applications from experienced teachers or NQTs (for whom we have a very effective induction and mentoring program). It is essential that applicants have very strong subject knowledge and are capable of delivering outstanding classroom practice to Key stages 3, 4 and 5. Our teachers must be able to work collaboratively and supportively with colleagues and have high expectations of all learners.
St Wilfrid’s is a successful 11-18 school with a strong Catholic ethos, set in a caring and inclusive community, where the celebration of our student’s talents and passions are paramount to everything we do. In 2017 the A Level average point score per entry was 30.46 and 72% of students achieved grade 4 in both English and Maths.
We are ideally situated in a semi-rural location, close to the thriving cities of Leeds and York, and just a short drive from some of the country’s most beautiful locations. Many of our pupils choose to travel from all over Yorkshire to join our caring community.
