Job description

It is an exciting time at Becket Keys Church of England School (Outstanding, 2014). We are working hard to build upon the exam successes of our founding cohorts, whilst also establishing our new 6th Form into its third year making this a fantastic opportunity to teach Science up to KS5.

Due to the continued expansion of our new school, especially in demand for Sixth Form science places, we are seeking a new science teacher to join our highly successful department.

We are open minded to welcome scientists of any specialism. You will need to be ready to teach across our full science curriculum at Key Stage 3 and then specialise for Key Stage 4 and 5. We have an engaging curriculum that features a great deal of practical science – students really enjoy their science lessons here. We are looking for energetic and passionate teachers who enthuse about the science curriculum.

There are opportunities to contribute to school wide curriculum development especially in STEM activities that enrich our students’ experience. If you are looking for a first leadership role, this could be for you!

The Department has a supportive and welcoming team who are always happy to support each other. If you are an enthusiastic candidate ready for the first step in your career or seeking a new challenge, we would like to hear from you. The Russell Education Trust offers a wealth of support and expertise to help you develop as a teacher. As such, a Newly Qualified Teacher would be welcome to apply. We already have an NQT joining our team in September and you would work collaboratively through your training year under the guidance and support of our advisory team and mentor.
