To join The Henry Box School is to join a family – staff and pupils who have the courage to do things differently, if that’s what it takes.
Here we think deeply about how we can have the biggest impact on pupils. In a world where the algorithms of life give us more of the same, we believe education has the role to give children something different. We continually ask ourselves the following five questions:
• Are we securing equity?
• Is our leadership driving school improvement?
• Is our curriculum irresistible?
• Are we research informed?
• Are we deploying resources effectively?
All schools in our Trust have a culture of compassion underpinned by high expectations and understanding. We have three rules: ready, respectful and safe. We are a truly inclusive organization and passionately believe that every child has a right to mainstream education.
The Science Faculty is a strong team of eleven committed specialist teachers. The team is managed by the Faculty Leader for Science.
Science across the Key Stages is taught in 10 well-equipped laboratories. The Science laboratories are served by 3 preparation rooms, one for each specialist area. There are 3 well-qualified and experienced laboratory Technicians who give invaluable support to Science teaching. There is also a greenhouse off one of the Biology laboratories and an established pond within a Science garden area. Schemes of learning, resources, course outlines and practical equipment are available for each year group and offer a broad and balanced curriculum for all students as well as maintaining flexibility for teachers.
This is an excellent opportunity for a talented teacher to join a strong Science Faculty. Applications are welcome from NQTs or experienced teachers. Applications must be submitted on The Mill Academy Teaching Staff Application Form, as unaccompanied CVs will not be accepted.
Visits to the school are welcome, by prior arrangement.
