Subject Leader for Biology job summary

Nishkam Schools are Sikh ethos multi-faith schools that take a distinctive approach to many traditional faith schools. We are committed to academic excellence grounded in a selfless approach to life (nishkam).


The Sikh dharam (faith or religious responsibility) is emphatic in respecting all faiths and not seeking converts, maximising our contribution towards a cohesive society. It has a unique multi-faith ethos and the School will reflect this by positively nurturing children of all faiths and those of no particular belief. Worshipping collectively and within specific faith groups is an innovative characteristic of the Schools, as children learn from faith, not just about faith.


Nishkam Schools aim to nurture lifelong learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and compassionate contributors to society. We have, as a trust, grown and have become a family of teachers and students that have the same attitude, respect and love for becoming better human beings and improving our minds and hearts to make a difference in our homes, community and the wider world. If global is local then we are here to show our neighbours that we can all work together and improve not only our education in learning and teaching but our life experience to become selfless humble individuals.


We believe that to build strong communities and responsible citizens, our efforts must go beyond our current standard models of education and encompass a holistic approach. We believe that faith-based organisations have a significant role to play as part of the wider community; the heritage they draw upon illuminates some of the deeper quests for meaning and value in human life, going onto inspire a new vision and greater responsibility in our endeavours. We believe that our faith-inspired virtues define the character of education and that they should be intrinsic to a positive outlook on life. Virtues are awakened and strengthened in us when they are practised in front of us every day. At the Schools, we work to ensure both our educators and learners are instinctively exercising virtues in every thought, decision and action. 


“All the world is my school and all humanity my teacher”, George Whitman. We are improving, developing and finding innovative ways to bring a new way of education to the world. The first multi-faith trust in the country showing the way forward to all that we can share our common values to strive for excellence.


We thank you for considering joining us on this journey and look forward to receiving your application.
