What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking to appoint a well-qualified, effective and enthusiastic specialist in Science to join us at this highly successful, heavily over-subscribed school which is firmly established as one of the highest performing secondary schools in the region (and in the top 10% of schools nationally). We gained ‘Good’ in our 2018 Ofsted inspection and as part of the Local Authority’s quality assurance strategy, we have gained Category 1 status, which is the highest category of school performance, for four years running.

Job Purpose:

  • To lead Chemistry within the Science department, ensuring high standards of teaching and learning, a good environment for learning and the well-being of staff and students.
  • To work with the Core Subject Leader to lead the planning and delivering the subject development plan focusing on a specified subject.
  • To ensure that Science outcomes show very good progress towards aspirational academy targets.
  • To contribute towards and coordinate provision for enhancing the wider curriculum experience in Science.

Furthermore, opportunities for career progression regularly arise, with the Academy having an excellent record of training and developing our own teachers and leaders from within.

The development of our staff is core to our well-being strategy and central in ensuring that we are able to deliver our mission. We will offer you:

  • High standards and high expectations whilst ensuring workload is balanced
  • Professional development opportunities to develop both pedagogy and leadership
  • Friendly and supportive staff body
  • Highly compliant and polite students
