We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and motivated Teacher of Science to join a progressive Science Department. The role would be suitable for both an experienced member of staff or NQTs.  

As a science academy the department’s vision is to continue to raise the profile of science across the Academy. We want to promote and grow science in the Academy, stimulating all students’ interest and enthusiasm for the subject. We are seeking candidates who share our passion for science, who will help us inspire students and be actively committed to innovative teaching and learning in and outside the classroom.  

You would be joining a large, popular and successful department.  All our rooms are fully equipped labs with interactive whiteboards, and we see practical lessons as an essential part of learning science.  All KS4 students are entered for GCSE Sciences, and we have recently expanded to two groups per year taking the separate sciences.  Our students achieved excellent GCSE results in 2016 with 60% achieving at least one C grade and 41% two C grades.  40% of the separate science grades were A/A*.  This put our science results above national average for the first time, measured on Progress 8.  All three sciences are popular choices at A level.
