The Governors of Katharine Lady Berkeley's School wish to appoint a well-qualified and enthusiastic member of staff to teach Science at Key Stages 3 and 4 together with Physics, Chemistry or Biology to A level in this mixed 11-18 comprehensive school. This is a full time, permanent post.
Sciences are popular options at A level with two groups in each of Years 12 and 13 for Physics and Chemistry and three groups for Biology.
All science teaching takes place in our Science block which includes 10 laboratories and an IT room. Three of the laboratories are in a recently built extension to the department while the other seven were fully re-furbished in the summers of 2016 and 2017.
This is a very successful comprehensive school. 78% of students achieved grade 4 or above in English and mathematics in summer 2017. Excellent results are also achieved at A level with 67% of entries resulting in grades A* to B.
The school is located near to junction 14 on the M5 and is within easy commuting distance from Bristol, Stroud and Gloucester.
Applications will be welcome from teachers who will be newly qualified in September and from those with more experience. The school offers excellent induction and support for newly qualified teachers and a wide range of professional development opportunities for all staff.
The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment. Appointment will be subject to satisfactory full enhanced DBS and barred list, prohibition order, identity and qualifications checks.
