Deputy Learning Director of Science + £2,000 Recruitment and Retention Bonus job summary

Deputy Learning Director of Science

We are a vibrant, forward-thinking school that places significant value on professional learning and career development. We are seeking an inspirational, highly motivated and innovative Deputy Learning Director of Science to join our welcoming science team to help drive forward further developments in the curriculum. The successful candidate will be able to teach science across KS3 and 4, and either Biology, Chemistry or Physics at GCSE Triple Science and A-level.

The science department achieves great results year on year. Triple science is being grown with regards to entry and we have good numbers choose all three specialisms for a-Level. A good proportion of those students go on to study Science based degrees at university.

At Kingsthorpe College, we believe that an understanding of science is essential for our pupils to engage with the modern world. Regardless of their level of scientific study, we believe that pupils should be able to leave Kingsthorpe College with the scientific knowledge needed to think more deeply about their world. We believe that science is a process; it embodies a method and process of enquiry, evidence gathering and questioning which is unique to science, yet transferrable to other disciplines.

This faculty are friendly, hard-working, innovative and committed to stimulating student interest in the world around them and enjoyment in their studies. We place significant emphasis on working collegiately as a faculty to share our expertise and subsequently enhance the learning experience with our students. Every member of the staff is involved in a variety of professional learning programmes that take place across the academic year.

We welcome applications from both experienced and early career teachers.

The position will start in September or, if possible, after May Half Term

Closing date for applications is: Monday 15th April 2024 at 9:00am

(We may interview suitable candidates prior to the closing date.)

Kingsthorpe College is the kind of school which is dedicated to ensuring that we make a difference, in any way that we can, to both our community and our young people. We are passionate about providing opportunities for all our students to achieve artistic, athletic and academic excellence. We very much believe that our role is to help develop successful learners, confident individuals, and responsible citizens. In addition to ensuring that all our young people achieve their potential in these areas, there is also a genuine commitment to respect for individuals which is demonstrated in the daily life of the College.

One of the first things you notice when you walk into the College is how friendly everybody is to each other – how frequently people smile, take an interest in other people, and find something positive and encouraging to say. We always take the time to celebrate success.

For us, high quality relationships are at the heart of everything that we do. We want our young people to be happy, confident, curious, and resilient learners. We know that this can only happen if relationships, built on trust and mutual respect, are central to all aspects of our work. We believe that when young people feel safe and secure, everything is possible, and we promise to do our utmost to make sure that we unlock the potential in everyone.

All we can ask from our students is that they do their best, and we value hard work, determination, and thoughtfulness highly. We want all our young people to ask themselves just one question at the end of every day – was I better today than I was yesterday? So whilst passing exams, and gaining the necessary qualifications to take that next step, is hugely important, we are equally committed to providing our young people with the space and resources to develop their character. We are proud of the extracurricular provision that we are able to offer, and we work hard to give our students plenty of opportunities to develop their confidence and creativity – both in and out of lessons.

We also believe in clarity of communication, and the power of feedback. We always welcome open and honest dialogue between all those involved in and with the College. We are committed to a restless excellence which can only be achieved through regular feedback, and you will always find us receptive to this. We are excited and optimistic about what the future holds for the young people and community which we serve.

Of course the best way to experience KC is by visiting us, and you will always find our doors open. If you would like to come and see us, please do get in touch.
