What skills and experience we're looking for

The Royal School is seeking a highly motivated and innovative Science Teacher to join the department from September 2024 in this heavily oversubscribed day and boarding free school. STEM subjects are at the heart of our education philosophy and student uptake in A-level and triple science subjects is high. The aptitude to teach a range of abilities from ages 11-18 is therefore essential. The ability and enthusiasm to teach across the science disciplines with a flair and passion is crucial as well as a flexibility to contribute within the department and to the development of a love of science from Reception to Y13. We are looking for the best candidate to join the team so applications are welcome from biologists, physicists and chemists and the ability to teach up to GCSE would be desired. The days required would be Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Are you the person to stretch, challenge, support and inspire our students in and outside of the laboratory?

  • Opportunities for you and your family to attend boarding activities e.g. parties, Alton Towers, visits to cities and museums.

The school’s distinctive ethos and culture where a truly holistic view of the personal development of the child is central to all that we do. The wider ‘enrichment’ programme at this all-through 4-19 boarding and day school is essential and helps develop confident pupils well equipped for life beyond the school. All staff contribute to this extensive programme with their personal interests and to join in with existing activities.
