The post will include teaching science at KS3-4, and Biology to KS5 attendingCornwall school of Maths and Science(CSMS). You must be committed to delivering an exceptional science education for our young people. Innovation, dedication, and the ability to teach scientific concepts with clarity and precision are qualities we look for, and you will be able to enthuse and motivate our students with your classroom presence and passion for science. Our science department is on a journey to becoming extraordinary, and we welcome applications from colleagues looking to thrive in our supportive and forward-thinking team.

The Science Faculty is incredibly well resourced, with modern, spacious science labs and a skilled technician team to support the highest standards of practical work. We teach a bespoke curriculum in KS3 and offer Combined and Separate science at KS4.
