What the school offers its staff

Why Work for us?

We think you will love working with us and here are some of the reasons why:

  • We are a welcoming and supportive school with strong values and a caring ethos.
  • Our staff are a hardworking team dedicated to helping children succeed.
  • Our children are engaged and eager to learn.

Further details about the role

We are excited to introduce you to our Science department at Whitelands Academy. This department is staffed by three very experienced Science teachers and one expert technician with a wealth of practical experience from research laboratories.

Our department consists of five spacious, modern laboratories, filled with a wide range of new equipment. Students receive seven hours of Science education per fortnight and are offered a range of extra-curricular science clubs after school.

We are in an exciting phase of our development where we are currently writing our KS4 curriculum. We believe that our curriculum should create students who have a deep understanding of all the skills necessary to enter the scientific world and so believe that the understanding and ability to practically research are equally as crucial as understanding and remembering the scientific knowledge.


If you can enthuse students about the world of Science and are passionate about developing the best possible education for students, then please do apply!

Experience will not be a determining factor in securing this role. The successful candidate will grow with our school: we will develop you, providing one-to-one support, coaching and access to an extensive training network.

Commitment to safeguarding

The White Horse Federation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. If successful for this role, you will be expected to apply for a disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service before an appointment is confirmed. Please note that references will be sought on shortlisted candidates before the interview.
