Maiden Erlegh Chiltern Edge, part of Maiden Erlegh Trust, is seeking applications for a Teacher of Science.
We are an 11 to 16 school which serves the communities of South Oxfordshire and north Reading. The school sits within 11 hectares of countryside in the attractive village of Sonning Common, an area of outstanding natural beauty. The school is currently on a journey of improvement, and this role represents a truly outstanding opportunity for an excellent teacher and practitioner to join the Trust and embed the improvement work already undertaken by a strong and dedicated staff team.
Our focus is ensuring all students receive a high-quality education and leave us as well qualified and well-rounded young adults. You would be joining teams of optimistic, talented and supportive colleagues, and teaching dynamic, ambitious and positive students.
We are interested in hearing from you if you have a passion for Science and a passion for quality first teaching. You will enjoy nurturing young people to grow in confidence in Science and flourish personally. You will share our inclusive values of “opportunity, diversity and success for all” and you will have a willingness to develop your own practice in line with our ethos of continuous improvement.
Since joining the Trust in August 2018, there has been extensive improvement works including a complete ICT refresh and whole school roof replacement programme. In addition, there are plans for developing a redundant part of the site to generate a significant sum for reinvestment into the school infrastructure to ensure the school is fit for the 21st century.
Being part of the Trust also means teachers have access to professional development, thanks to Maiden Erlegh Teaching School. We offer a flexible CPD programme which staff can tailor to their own needs which includes coaching and training for new entrants to the profession and to support career returners. We are very happy to discuss flexible working arrangements including part-time working and job-sharing.
The Trust has a proven track record of supporting ambitious staff to middle and senior leadership posts and can offer Specialist Leader of Education and school improvement opportunities to the right candidates.
Visits to our school are warmly welcomed so that you can meet us and see our facilities and how we work. Please email email@example.com with your interest to visit.
Closing date: 9am, Monday 25 November 2019.
Interviews: To follow shortly after.
We reserve the right to appoint before the closing date.
The Trust is committed to safeguarding, equality and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All posts require an enhanced DBS disclosure.
