What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking for an enthusiastic, engaging, creative and proactive Science Teacher. Applicants will have experience in teaching students of all abilities and supporting them to reach their academic potential. You will be joining a well-established and friendly team of specialist teachers of Science who work collaboratively to ensure quality first teaching is the priority for all students.

Teachers of Science teach both KS3 and KS4 in ability sets. KS3 students are taught Science over 7 lessons over the two weeks. At KS4 students have Biology, Chemistry and Physics lessons, and we try where possible for teachers to teach within their specialism. The majority of students take OCR Gateway Combined Science and have 9 lessons over two weeks, 3 in each subject area. Students are also offered OCR Triple Science as a guided option and have 14 lessons over two weeks, 5 Chemistry, 5 Physics and 4 Biology. A comprehensive scheme of work is in place with shared resources.

What the school offers its staff

We are a very well-resourced department in terms of experience, equipment and shared teaching resources. Each member of staff is provided with a staff laptop, and each teacher within the science department has a visualiser. We have 6 modern spacious laboratories, and one science theory classroom, serviced by one modern prep room with two experienced technicians. As a school we have 3 bookable computer rooms which we can use for our lessons. Currently each teacher is based in one laboratory, and has responsibility for this space. As a department we value CPD opportunities and have sent staff on a variety of CPD courses, including residential courses at the National STEM Centre in York.

As a school we are proud to offer our KS3 students timetabled Enrichment each week. All staff are expected to offer an activity for this Enrichment which could be related to the teacher’s specialist subject or an area in which they are passionate about. This is an excellent opportunity for both staff and students to benefit from a wider curriculum and gives an opportunity for staff to promote our school ethos with students beyond the boundaries of their classrooms.

This role will also include being responsible for the pastoral care of a Mentor group. Mentor groups run as part of a Chapter system within their year group.

This vacancy is suitable for NQT Graduates

*We are offering a Recruitment bonus of up to £5,000 for the right candidate, subject to Terms and Conditions.
