A unique opportunity for an extraordinary Science teacher to start September 2019 

Are you looking to start or develop your teaching career in an innovative, creative and supportive environment?

Would you like to be part of a growing and thriving school that moved into brand-new, purpose built accommodation in September 2018? 

Do you believe in working in partnership with families and the local community to enable each child to aim high?  

Are you passionate about the importance of continuing professional learning?

Do you believe that each child’s journey of discovery should include learning life and academic skills in equal measure, preparing each child to thrive in our global society?   The Wren School does.

The Wren School - a six form entry 11 - 18 secondary Free School that opened in West Reading in September 2015 - currently caters for Year 7-10 students.  We pride ourselves on being a local school for the local community and our reputation is extremely positive.  We joined Excalibur Academies Trust on 1st February this year and we are looking forward to the additional opportunities that being a member of a multi-academy trust will provide.

We are delighted that in June 2018, in our first inspection, Ofsted considered The Wren School to be a ‘good’ school.  We are oversubscribed in Year 7 and 8.  Our new site opened in September 2018 and offers a fantastic learning environment.  It is our ambition to create a happy and thriving school that will facilitate the growth and development of the community and we’re searching for exceptional people who will share our vision that:

Each child, regardless of background, will receive a world-class education and

be nurtured, challenged and inspired to ‘aim high’.

Subject teacher of Science

Working with our current teaching staff team, we are looking to appoint a subject teacher of  Science and welcome applications from NQTs.  An ability to offer more than one subject may be helpful but is not essential. 

Our Key Stage 3 approach is a thematic one with an intention to achieve a smooth transition from Key stage 2.  We aim to develop skills for learning alongside the knowledge that will enable our learners to ‘aim high’ at GCSE and beyond.  Embarking on Year 9 study, our students commence GCSEs in the core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science and Citizenship; potential option subjects deliver GCSE-style taster modules in order to facilitate option choices that commence part-way through the year.

If our vision and ethos match your own philosophy, then we hope you will be tempted to apply by downloading a recruitment pack and completing the application form and equal opportunities monitoring form.  

Closing date for application is midday Monday 1st July 2019.  Completed applications should be emailed to recruitment@wrenschool.org.  Suitable applicants may be invited for interview before the closing date.
