Job description

NQT Chemistry Teacher
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a dedicated teacher to develop their career within our passionate and ever courageous community

We are a courageous, compassionate community - empowering excellence. We are a value lead organisation, being bold within every aspect of our lives at school.
We want all staff to thrive and demonstrate leadership and determination when leading our students and pupils within our rich and diverse community. We opened in 2012 with the vision to create a centre of excellence in the community.
We empower our teams by valuing personal and team development. This is through weekly CPD sessions, frequent line management meetings and allowing staff to develop their own ideas and projects. Our staff’s wellbeing is key to creating a friendly supportive community within the school. Guided by our internal wellbeing committee we have a wide range of initiatives designed to improve the motivation and lives of our staff. This is supported by the Ark rewards scheme offering reduced gym membership, free counselling and support services and other perks.
We value the energy and new ideas NQT’s have to bring. Many of our core team were hired at Bolingbroke as NQT’s. We have a strong support structure in place with regular observations, feedback and training.
This role at the centre of our school and within a successful, empowering and dynamic Science department. This is an opportunity to show what non-selective education can achieve for all pupils and students in our community.
