Science Teacher job summary

Ormiston Sir Stanley Matthews Academy (OSSMA) is a non-denominational, non-selective school, welcoming students of all backgrounds from the local community. Our mission is to equip every student with the knowledge, learning power and character necessary for success both at the next stage of their education and beyond. We believe in ‘aspiration beyond limits,’ that there is nothing our students are not capable of attaining, and ‘success beyond measure,’ where our students’ achievements are judged on more than just exam grades. Students, teachers, staff and parents are committed to making this vision a reality in a vibrant and inclusive learning community in which everyone can succeed.

We offer a rich interconnected curriculum based on our academy values that reaches beyond the classroom. Every moment in the day is a learning opportunity for every member of our community. Literacy and oracy are at the heart of our academy. Students read challenging texts that supplement the curriculum and offer greater cultural capital for all. All students develop their oracy skills from the moment they join the academy, developing their confidence to speak articulately and confidently in public and to be able to structure conversation and debate. We offer an incredibly wide range of personal development opportunities to ensure that our students can engage in the same opportunities as any child in this country. Staff development is central to ensuring that we are able to deliver to our students such a rich and varied educational offer.

We will offer you:

  • Professional and personal development;
  • Friendly staff and motivated students;
  • A comprehensive range of extra-curricular activities;
  • Innovative approaches to reducing workload, improving wellbeing and work-life balance whilst retaining high standards;
  • An empowered workforce with a genuine voice in improving the Academy further;
  • A Microsoft Surface for use at both work and home;
  • A unified, dedicated and supportive team of staff as well as the support of 2 full time technicians

What we are looking for:

We are looking to appoint an experienced, dynamic, strong, and inspirational teacher of Science to join our experienced and fully staffed team. The successful candidate must have a passion for Science. They must demonstrate a clear interest in developing Science teaching and learning and research informed practice, whilst working alongside a team passionate about securing the best possible outcomes for students. Candidates will be required to teach across specialisms up to GCSE level and be keen to stretch our highest attaining pupils.

At Ormiston Sir Stanley Matthews, we recruit those people who display the character and competence to really drive our academy forward and accelerate achievement standards for all our students. It is therefore essential that candidates can identify with, and be committed to, upholding the values of the Ormiston Sir Stanley Matthews ethos. We are looking for someone who is able to demonstrate that they can make a significant contribution to a team, have impact on pupil outcomes and demonstrate a deep understanding of Science curriculum and pedagogy.

This is an exceptional opportunity to make a difference to the future of education with an academy that is ever improving and a department that is striving to be one of the highest performing in the city. If you share the academy's vision and ambitions, possess a strong desire to work within an ethos of creative collaboration and partnership and want to have a positive impact on young people, families and our community, then we would be delighted to hear from you.
