What skills and experience we're looking for

The role will provide the successful applicant with the chance to further develop and teach an exciting curriculum in KS3 and KS4 as well as teaching A-level if desired.

You will be part of a dynamic and growing teaching team and you will therefore have the chance to significantly shape the experiences of our students in the subject as they progress through our growing school.

There is the potential for this role to develop as the school and Sixth Form grows, with various leadership opportunities becoming available in future years, both subject and whole-school based.
