The Headteacher and Directors of the Our lady of Light Catholic Academy Trust are seeking to appoint a Science teacher (preferably a Physics specialist) who is committed to ensuring that our young people achieve in every way. We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic and able teacher with vision to join our already talented Science department.
It is essential that the successful candidate is, or has the potential to be, an outstanding classroom practitioner and has the ability to raise student achievement and enhance student potential in Science at both KS3 & KS4. The successful candidate will also be a Form Tutor and will be expected to be proactive in promoting the religious and spiritual beliefs of the college in their pastoral role. This post would suit an NQT.
St. Patrick’s is a relatively small Catholic 11-16 secondary academy with high academic standards and a family atmosphere. Our success is firmly rooted in strong, supportive relationships between pupils, staff and parents based on mutual respect and high aspirations.
