We are looking for an excellent practitioner, who shares our passion for seeing young people flourish. Our school is a good school, which is extremely popular. We are oversubscribed with over 1200 students on roll. For many years, outcomes have been extremely positive, and students have moved on to achieve their aspirations. However, we do not pride ourselves only on our academic performance but on our student-centred approach and the range of opportunities we provide our students through our curriculum and through our extra-curricular offer. That is The Heath Standard.

There are no expectations regarding experience and the successful candidate would be a well organised, vibrant, innovative practitioner who has in depth curriculum knowledge. We have eleven staff who make up the science team including TLR holders and SLT, who provide superb support to their leader and their peers. Our facilities are excellent and our students love to learn. This is a fantastic opportunity to develop personally and further raise standards across the department.
