We are looking to appoint a person who can teach Science at
KS3, and from KS4 through to KS5 to teach Biology, as part of an already
existing team. We are seeking an outstanding and dynamic science teacher to
contribute to the development and success of the Biology team. This is an exciting opportunity to develop
your Biology teaching in an excellent, highly academic school. Science follows
the AQA exam board at GCSE Biology and AQA at A level Biology.
Boston High School is a girls’ selective school founded in
1914 and moved to its current location just outside the main town centre in
beautiful grounds, with its own playing fields in 1937. The School converted to
Academy status on 1 January 2013, keeping its name, uniform, selective process
and traditions. There are currently
approximately 850 students on roll, with 250 in the Sixth Form.
This is an academic school and we strive, as do our
students, to push to our very best in terms of attainment. But this is not all
the school is about. There is a rare atmosphere here – one of inquisitive
intellectual exploration, a commitment to others and the real feeling that we
are a community. We have a strong Student Leadership Team, Subject Prefects and
a house system which encourages all to be involved. Clubs run from sport to
Dissection Club to the prestigious Young Journalists (whose work can be seen on
our website) and beyond. There are fantastic musical opportunities for students
with productions and concerts held each year. The Duke of Edinburgh Award
Scheme flourishes and school trips this year include ones to The Battlefields, Stratford,
Murcia and Dieppe, to name a few. We have links with Japan, accommodating
exchange students every two years.
Every teaching room has an integrated data-projector. We are
a SIMS school.
Results in public examinations are outstanding, with the
majority of our students progressing to university, including Oxford and
Cambridge and medical/veterinary courses. In terms of academic performance we
are the top performer in the area by some not inconsiderable way.
The Leadership Team consists of the
Headteacher, two Deputy Headteachers, and two Assistant Headteachers. There is an excellent and much-appreciated
programme of induction for ECTs and new staff.
This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, consequently an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service Check (DBS) will be required.
