Teacher of Science

Start date: September 2021

Salary: Main Pay Scale/Upper Pay Scale (Suitable for NQTs)

That feeling of awe and wonder when a student is blown away with the marvels of science and the doors it opens – it’s what we thrive on and why we do the job. If you agree we’d love to hear from you. If you’d love to work with a full team of specialist teachers who share your passion for the sciences, then you’ve just found the job for you.

You will join a close knit team that are achieving special things, with GCSE results well above National, and one that is at the forefront of learning in science.

If you can:

 Inspire and innovate

 Nurture and develop (yourself as well as others)

 Commit to, and raise further, high achievement and motivation

 Optimise science learning for all

Then come and see us. We are looking for potential as much as experience so we welcome applications from ITTs. Here’s just a few reasons why you’d be mad not to:

 Our greatest strength is our people and we work hard to make sure you know that. Wellbeing is central to all we do – you get 4 wellbeing days a year off, and 12 hours of time to undertake wellbeing activities including jewellery making, baking, quizzes and tea & cake!

 Not to mention the SLT breakfast we cook you, the end of term Christmas meal, Easter Egg hunt, or summer BBQ where we also give out awards, prizes, and champagne.

 Planning your lessons is crucial and it’s always easier when we collaborate – we’ve put in place hours of co-planning so that you can share best practice and resources and not have to sit at home doing it on your own.

 Our NQT provision is rated as Outstanding by Hampshire; you’ll get a professional tutor and a subject mentor, have access to 2 NQT Hampshire sessions in Year 1, and a weekly school training session, on top of the whole school CPD. We have a dedicated Training Hub for new and trainee teachers with free refreshments and plenty of IT facilities.

 Being part of The Bohunt Education Trust means you get dedicated time with like-minded colleagues from 7 other schools, specialist training opportunities, and career progression opportunities which open doors every year.

If you are new to the profession then we offer a £1500 bonus in term 4, upon successful completion of your NQT year.
