We seek to appoint an enthusiastic, inspiring teacher who can bring Science to life and create a nurturing learning environment within which everyone can reach their full potential.

The ideal candidate will be able to teach across the ability range for KS3 and KS4 and a real interest in developing teaching and learning is also important. This is an excellent opportunity for a teacher to join a school which is committed to providing high quality professional development opportunities and support a science team on its journey of improvement.

We are committed to professional development for all staff, regardless of role.  We have an innovative staff development programme, which truly empowers teachers to take control of their own professional development.  For those striving for career development, we provide funded places on nationally recognised middle and senior leadership development programmes.

• A strong mentoring programme for NQTs and RQTs

To further support the development of the school we are in the process of converting to a Multi-Academy Trust with Hollingworth Academy – an outstanding local secondary school.  This relationship will further strengthen the improvements made and ensure every one of our young people is supported to become the best they can be.

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expects all staff to share this commitment.  Appointment to this post is subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring background check.
