We are seeking a Science Technician to work alongside our existing team of technicians in our collaborative, supportive and ambitious Science Department.  This position offers you the chance to be part of our warm and friendly school community, working in a department committed to our school values of Everyone Learning, Everyone Caring. Experience is not a necessity, as specialist training will be provided if required.

 

We are renowned for placing a high value on staff wellbeing and professional development at all levels.


Situated just east of Oxford in a unique parkland site, Wheatley Park School is a flourishing 11- 18 academy with a vibrant comprehensive intake. 


Education has the power to change lives, communities and society for the better.

Schools in RLT are united by a common belief in the benefits of working together, and by our commitment to shared principles.


OUR VISION is for our schools and SCITT to improve rapidly, continuously and sustainably: to be better faster together.

OUR ‘WHY?’ is that children and young people ‘only get one go’ in school and therefore as part of RLT we aim to ensure the best possible ‘go’ for our pupils.

OUR ‘HOW?’ is through the highest support and challenge for our schools and each other, underpinned by our principles.


Our employees benefit from a wide variety of support including extensive  continuing professional learning and development opportunities, wellbeing and staff networks and access to Defined Benefit Pension Schemes (TPS and LGPS) for all staff. For more information on what it is like to work for the Trust, and the benefits you could access, please see our “Working in RLT” guide.
