Job summary

We are seeking an enthusiastic teacher to join our successful Science department to teach Chemistry and Physics to KS4 and General Science to KS3. The ability to teach KS5 Chemistry would be an advantage but is not essential. You will join a leading department in a heavily over-subscribed academy. The Science department is staffed with a mixture of experienced teachers, NQTs and three technicians, all with a commitment to continuous school improvement.

You will move through the years with your year group to ensure they maximise their potential.

The role includes leading and monitoring a tutor time programme, organising and monitoring Life Lesson, as well as taking a strategic lead to ensure the students display the highest level of attendance, punctuality and behaviour throughout school.
