Eastlea is a fully inclusive, friendly and supportive Community School where employees are valued and developed. You will want to make a real difference to young peoples’ future, be passionate about achievement and standards along with your own professional development and progression.

Behaviour is excellent. Our parents and students have high aspirations and teaching spaces are inviting and well resourced. The school is within walking distance to West Ham, Plaistow, Canning Town and Star Lane stations and is close to the dynamic London Docklands, which can be seen from the schools playing field.

The Science Curriculum Area was refurbished a few years ago, with new laboratories, an open space with ICT resources for students to use and quality teaching resources. The Science Curriculum area is a close knit family which supports one another. This will be a good opportunity to develop your Teaching and Learning skills in a very successful team. We have created a personalised Key Stage 3 curriculum and are currently developing the new Key Stage 4 Curriculum, which aims to build on the students personal achievements, resilience and independent learning, helping them to develop the skills to become successful learners and increasing enjoyment for the subject. We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic, energetic and creative practitioner to join our Science team. The person appointed will be committed to raising the quality of Teaching and Learning, inspiring the students to reach their full potential and therefore raising pupil attainment.

Applications from both experienced and Newly Qualified Teachers are very welcome.
