Job summary

Teacher of Chemistry

Start date: September 2022

Salary: Highly Competitive. Possible R&R and relocation allowance.

An exciting opportunity has arisen within our Science faculty. We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic Teacher of Chemistry to play a significant part within a dedicated and supportive team. The ability to teach Chemistry to KS5 is desirable. You will be working in and making significant contributions to a team that is committed to continually raising standards. We are a large faculty with a range of subject specialists and two full time technicians to support practical learning in the classroom.

Northampton Academy is a transformational comprehensive and non-selective school of approximately 1700 students, serving a diverse community. We were proud to be judged ‘good and improving’ in our most recent Ofsted in November 2019, with clear indication we could be outstanding. Our values, which underpin every decision we take, are RESPECT, DETERMINATION and AMBITION. We have a comprehensive student character-building programme, which has been nationally recognised through the Character Kitemark.

The leadership of the academy is completely determined to create an environment in which teachers can get on with their core role: delivering excellent lessons. To this end, the student behaviour system is clear and simple and easy to administer in lessons. If action is needed beyond these simple steps, the pastoral and senior teams take all the burden away from the teachers, conducting detentions, following up and dealing with parents on your behalf. Teachers at the academy speak of this as one of the major benefits of working here. In addition to this, teachers are trusted to be professionals through:

• A genuine ‘flexi-working’ approach with at least one opportunity a week to come in late or leave early for every teaching member of staff
• No unannounced observations
• No lesson grading
• 3 extra INSET days per year for joint team planning
• A feedback and recognition policy that lets teachers decide the best feedback mechanism for their own classes, rather than having this prescribed centrally

Northampton Academy is committed to equal opportunities and to the protection and safety of all students and adults. We expect all staff and volunteers to share these commitments.

The post will be subject to an enhanced DBS Disclosure.
