Job summary

Easter 2022 or September 2022 start date available

We are a large 11-18 Academy and we are looking for a brilliant and dynamic Science practitioner who is passionate about their subject and able to lead by example and inspire others.

We are looking to appoint a high quality, enthusiastic teacher of science to join our large, successful science department. If you have the desire to make a real difference to the lives of young children and want to join a team of highly dedicated staff, then we would love to hear from you.

At KS4, students currently study either Combined Science or GCSE Biology, Chemistry and Physics. The KS3 curriculum prepares students for these qualifications by emphasising practical and investigative approaches to learning, setting students' acquired knowledge in a real-world context. The department's goal is for all students to understand the relevance of their science learning to their everyday lives, and for the majority to want to pursue their science learning further. In the Sixth form, as well as offering A levels in the single sciences we also offer the BTEC Level 3 Applied Science.
