We are looking for a passionate Scientist to join our highly-successful Department and ensure that every pupil at GFS falls in love with Science and wants to study it at University.    

At GFS we are passionate about the importance of subject disciplines and want all of our pupils to serve an apprenticeship within each particular subject. You will be an expert Scientist who will enable all pupils to think, talk and write in  particular, powerful ways, mirroring the disciplinary thinking of an expert within the field. 

We provide every pupil in the school with 4 hours a week of Science from Year 7 and provide 12 days a year where we collapse the timetable to allow more intensive learning to take place. We do not merge subjects and do not shy away from introducing difficult, yet interesting, content to Year 7.  If you are passionate about the importance of Science and want to spread this message to as many young people as possible, this is probably the job for you.   

The application form can be found online at and return both the form and the personal statement via e-mail to Victoria Hemmings at by 0900 Monday 20th March 2017.

If you would like to speak with me directly, please call on the number above. Visits to the school are welcome and please contact Victoria to arrange.
