What skills and experience we're looking for

The Directors of Uffculme Academy Trust are seeking to appoint two Teachers of Science (preferably with a Chemistry specialism) to join our Outstanding school for the start of the Autumn Term 2023. This vacancy would be suitable for ECT, RQTs and experienced teachers.

The successful candidates will be, or have the potential to be, an outstanding teacher who inspires a keen interest in Science in students and who is able to deliver the exceptional results which we have come to expect from our students. (Note - whilst we are ideally seeking a Chemistry specialism, our priority is to appoint the strongest candidates.). A full contribution to our extensive extra-curricular programme will be expected. The Science Department has outstanding experience and leadership. In return we can offer you support from an excellent team of colleagues where morale is high, fantastic facilities and young people who genuinely want to learn.

What the school offers its staff

Uffculme is a flourishing, popular, high performing School located on the beautiful Devon/Somerset border with easy motorway access to the regional centres of Taunton and Exeter. We are fully comprehensive and committed to inclusion. The February 2014 OfSTED inspection classed the School as ‘Outstanding’. Uffculme is one of the highest performing non-selective schools in the country. Consequently, we have received many national awards and accolades over recent times in recognition of the quality of the education provided here at Uffculme.

Within this context, the Science Department is one of the flagship departments of the school with typically over 70% of students opting to study separate sciences and 80% of students achieving Grades 9-4.

Whilst our examination results speak for themselves, they don’t tell the whole story. They are based on a culture of high expectations; exceptional levels of student participation and active involvement in the life of the school; and great relationships between staff and students. We make no apologies for wanting it all as a school: happy staff, happy students, outstanding results, amazing opportunities, and a culture which rewards and values success in all its forms.
