Senior Science Technician job summary

The role

We are looking for a Senior Science Technician who will work closely with our science teachers and students in The Academy's labs and classrooms.

If you are an accomplished technician who would relish the chance to make your mark in a school that has already made a huge transformation and continues to do so, this is the perfect role for you.

This position provides the ideal opportunity for an ambitious and dynamic technician with vision to help shape an ethos of care, respect, high achievement and challenge. Our last Ofsted inspection, in April 2019, graded the school as ‘Good’ overall with ‘Outstanding’ behaviour and leadership. Over the last five years, we have achieved:

A phenomenal increase in exam results from 39% to 76% of students gaining 5+ good passes including English and Maths in 2019;
A Progress 8 score improvement from -0.45 to +0.6 in 2019, meaning we are now in the top 10% of schools nationally;
A 150% increase in student numbers enrolled in Year 7 - from 72 to 180.

At TTA we are committed to developing our people and, as part of the largest group of academies and independent schools in the country, United Learning, we offer unrivalled professional development and career progression.

We are seeking someone who is a highly organised self starter, able to work unsupervised or as part of a team. You must have experience of being able to manage the customer expectations around planning and monitoring tasks/processes. You must have a proven track record in enforcing systems, policies and procedures. We would like the successful candidate to be ICT literate and be able to use standard IT systems and programs

This is an exciting time to join TTA; if you share our high expectations and are passionate about making a difference, we look forward to receiving your application.

The school

The Totteridge Academy (TTA) is a fantastic secondary school in North London. With approximately 900 students, and a new Sixth Form which opened in September 2020, TTA is continuing to grow and develop. We are looking for passionate and enthusiastic staff to join our team. Here are some quotes from our 2021-22 staff survey:

“I feel 100% supported by my department and other staff. The student and teacher bond is like I've not seen before, which is amazing.”

“Teaching and learning is extremely well led, resulting in consistent teaching across the school and therefore much improved attainment from pupils. It is the single most stand-out quality in this school that makes me very proud, and has improved my teaching immensely”

“The culture of collaboration and continuous improvement is fantastic. I feel as though I would be welcomed, supported and appreciated by any member of staff.”

“The community is extremely supportive, and the staff genuinely care for the children, their education and supporting one another, both professionally and personally.”

“So many of the middle leaders are just world class. They lead by example and have relentlessly high expectations and good humour to boot. Teaching and learning at this school is exceptionally well led.”

We provide a high-quality education in a safe, caring, and focused environment. We teach skills and knowledge, enabling our students to become responsible, well-rounded citizens, equipped with the tools to make effective choices for their futures. We pride ourselves on our inclusive environment with a rich and nurturing culture. We celebrate our differences whilst standing together as a united learning community.

After a significant jump in GCSE results over the three years (pre-pandemic), we are continuing this upward trend. Our school philosophy of kaizen (continuous improvement) enables our students and staff to aim high at all times so that every individual can attain his or her best. We celebrate and are proud of the achievements of all of our students, valuing individuality and nurturing happy, confident, and hard-working young people.

We have high expectations at The Totteridge Academy and reject the view that success in life is pre-determined or that our talents are fixed. We improve through practice; calm, focused classrooms led by knowledgeable, passionate teachers.
