The Reach Free School is looking to appoint an enthusiastic and committed Science teacher to join our team of talented, energetic and visionary teachers.
Science is a popular and well-resourced subject at The Reach Free School. In KS3 pupils have four Science lessons every week. At KS4 this increases to five Science lessons for those studying Combined Science and eight lessons for those studying Triple Science. For KS3/KS4 the ability to teach multiple disciplines is required with an emphasis on contributing to the design and provision of an engaging curriculum, which provides pupils with the opportunity to achieve their individual potential. Our modern Science laboratories are well equipped to ensure that all substantial knowledge gained can then be applied practically. This is further enhanced by our popular Science electives which not only allow for discovery but also inspire a love of learning across the disciplines. The successful candidate will also have the opportunity to develop and deliver the Post-16 Science courses that are offered.
We are looking for an expert practitioner with successful teaching experience across the age and ability range, and someone who demonstrates a good understanding of the potential of technology to enhance learning.
You will have a passion for all the Sciences, and a track record of excellent teaching, collaboration and creativity. You will hold and embody the highest expectations of your pupils and will have the drive and ambition to create an outstanding environment for learning, in Science and beyond.
The Reach Free School is looking for its teachers to:
Be outstanding practitioners who inspire pupils and colleagues
Be creative in delivering a rigorous, academic curriculum
Believe that every child can and will succeed
Be committed to securing the best outcomes for all pupils at the school with an understanding of how data can be used to maximise progress
Have a passion for education and be open to innovative approaches in everyday aspects of school life
Offer enrichment and extra-curricular experiences related to their subject area and beyond
Contribute to the overall development of the school
Be flexible, collaborative and resilient
In return we will offer you:
A unique opportunity to help build on the school’s successes to date
A happy and supportive working environment with high expectations and standards
Access to the latest technology to assist in developing your teaching and learning
Competitive salaries, based on skills and experience
A network of outstanding practitioners to collaborate with and learn from
The potential for further management opportunities

About The Reach Free School
The Reach Free School is an 11 to 18 school in Rickmansworth, which serves pupils of all backgrounds and abilities. Opened in September 2013, the school was founded by a group of teachers and local parents in response to a significant demand for more secondary school places in the area.
All involved with the school have high aspirations for our pupils and high expectations of them. As such we expect all pupils to:
Commit their best efforts to all that they do
Support each other to achieve their potential
Work with their teachers to exceed their goals
Demonstrate exemplary behaviour in all that they do
Take pride in their school and its community within its walls and beyond
The Reach Free School plays an active role in the community, working with local businesses, supporting local events and providing a hub for local services. Pupils are very much involved in the school’s wider responsibilities, developing skills in leadership and decision making, communication and collaboration and independent, self led learning.
A sense of purpose and responsibility pervades lessons and activities at The Reach Free School and it is important that our pupils recognise their own responsibilities as members of the community. It is this that underpins The Reach Free School’s ethos; Achievement, Community, Enjoyment – ACE.
