What skills and experience we're looking for

Science is one of the most highly regarded subject areas at Admiral Lord Nelson School, in which students are successful in terms of exam performance, enjoyment of their learning and preparation for their future lives. It is a department which is extremely well-led by a supportive Curriculum Director, ably supported by an excellent team of TLR post-holders. You willbe joining a well-established, research driven Science department and become part of an innovative team of teachers who enjoy working together to create shared resources. Reducing unnecessary work load is a key focus for our school and this is reflected in our feedback policy which is effective and time efficient, promoting student progress without over burdening staff. All teachers have their own specialist classroom, which is well-equipped including access to a visualiser and a range of excellent scientific equipment. The department is also leading the drive on Chromebooks to further enhance the quality of education that we provide within our Science curriculum, both in school in lessons and for Independent Learning.

Sharing good practice is common place amongst all departments in our school and our professional learning programme will give you the chance to really think about what makes for great teaching and learning. We pride ourselves on helping great teachers become the best they can be no matter where they are in their career. ECTs with the potential to become outstanding practitioners will be offered a full induction process and on-going professional development. If you are ambitious and looking to take the next step we will invest in your development and offer rapid career progression for those who aspire to be become middle leaders or senior leaders of the future.
