We are seeking to appoint an inspirational Teacher of Science with a passion for accelerating progress within our Science department.

Candidates must be able to teach across the ability and age range, supporting the development of Science to the highest standards for all pupils at Key Stages 3 and 4.

Career development recruitment incentives:

  • Substantial TLRs are available for suitable candidates
  • Access and support to follow middle leadership programmes from the outset e.g. NPQML, Teaching Leaders
  • Candidates should be looking at this post as a 3 year career pathway rather than just a Teacher of Science post
  • We advise you to come in and speak with the Principal to discuss the above and shape the next 3 years of your career, thus this post is suitable for both NQTs and experienced teachers.

This summer, for the third year running, we celebrated our best ever GCSE results. We, yet again, had significant increases in the number of students achieving a grade 4 (old C grade pass) in both English and Maths. Our progress scores were excellent and again significantly improved. Our Progress 8 score of +0.42 puts us in the top two schools in the city and shows that on average all our students made almost half a grade more than expected nationally across every one of their 8 subjects from their starting points. At Kingswood Academy all students make good progress in every subject, regardless of their starting point.

The ideal candidate will:

  • Be passionate about Science
  • Bring an unwavering commitment to promoting the highest standards of teaching and learning across the department and the academy;
  • Have a relentless obsession about developing their own standards of teaching and learning to enable them to deliver excellent student outcomes;
  • Be a committed team player;
  • Have the ability to engage and inspire pupils and build excellent relationships;
  • Be committed to Kingswood Academy's ethos of high expectations and no excuses;
  • Be passionate and ambitious about their own career development

We welcome visits to the Academy, to see the school in action and discuss the post. To book an appointment please contact cweightman@thekingswoodacademy.org
