Teacher of Science job summary

Due to the successful promotion of a current member of the Science team we are looking for a talented, inspirational and dynamic teacher to join our team of science specialists. There will also be an opportunity for a TLR to lead on Biology or Chemistry, for the right candidate.

Our vision is to develop world class students who have the belief in themselves that anything is possible and go on to lead happy and successful lives. If you are a driven and dedicated practitioner who is eager to grow and learn, by building effective relationships and instilling in students a love of science, then we want to hear from you.

The Misbourne is an aspirational and friendly place to work where every student and member of staff is a valued member of our community. You will be working alongside a strong and committed curriculum leader and a supportive team including three experienced science technicians. The team work collaboratively and share a desire for an ambitious science curriculum to be at the forefront of our students’ education. We are always looking for new opportunities and forward-thinking developments.

We will work closely with you to support your career goals and offer high-calibre CPD and opportunities for future promotion within your subject and the wider school. We are looking for one thing in return: striving for excellence in everything we do.

Although we are looking for someone with the ability to teach all three sciences to GCSE, each team member has their particular area(s) of specialism. Frequent departmental CPD utilises this expertise to help ensure the whole team deliver the same high quality across the curriculum. The ability to teach A-Level is desirable but not essential as we will be keen to support you in developing your A-Level teaching, whatever your specialism or career stage.

What we offer you:

- A dedicated specialist lab for all your lessons.
- Practical and administrative support from a team of experienced technicians.
- An evidence-informed approach to school improvement, only implementing what we feel will make the biggest difference to the lives and outcomes of our young people, being mindful of staff workload.
- Well-embedded electronic resources to support teaching and reduce workload.
- A genuine commitment to support your career development through our CPD programme.
- We are a key provider of initial teacher training in the local area, working with several local teaching schools and universities including the Astra Teaching School Alliance.
- We are passionate about developing and growing STEM subjects as part of our school vision; collaboration with other subject areas is a priority for us.
- Staff wellbeing is at the forefront of all decisions that are made
Opportunities to get involved in/lead a range of co-curricular experiences from across the school
- A two-week October half term
