The Swan School, Oxford - Second in Charge of Faculty (Science)
This is a rare and exciting opportunity to be part of starting an exceptional comprehensive school. As second in charge of science for The Swan’s team, you will help to build the foundations of an outstanding school from the ground up. In this role you will work with the Head of Faculty to develop the subject area, which will include enhancement of the existing KS3 curriculum, preparation for GCSE, and the planning and delivery of all three sciences at A-Level. The role will lead one specific science subject from KS3 to 5. A chemistry specialism is desired, but not essential.
The successful candidate will share our ambitions for our students. You will relish the challenge of creating a new school that will be different to other comprehensive schools in the city. You will be a highly motivated team player with leadership potential, a creative thinker who is unafraid to try new approaches, and a reflective practitioner, keen to continue learning in order to achieve the best possible outcomes for our students.

The Swan School, part of the River Learning Trust, is Oxford’s first new secondary school for over 50 years, and opened in September 2019. When full, we will have approximately 1,200 students on roll, of whom around 300 will be in the Sixth Form. Our students will be drawn from a local catchment area and the school will be at the heart of the community.
Learning from the most successful approaches at the best schools, The Swan School provides a uniquely challenging and structured experience in a caring and disciplined environment. The ethos is academic; we regard an excellent academic education as the entitlement of all young people, no matter what their background or previous experiences of learning. Students are inspired and nurtured, acquiring the knowledge and skills to think critically and creatively. They will learn to be confident, resilient and ambitious, and will have high expectations in terms of their own achievements and their contribution to wider society.
