Teacher of Science job summary

Teacher of Science

We are a vibrant, forward-thinking school that places significant value on professional learning and career development. We are seeking an inspirational, highly motivated and innovative teacher of science to join our welcoming science team to help drive forward further developments in the curriculum. The successful candidate will be able to teach science across KS3 and 4, with Chemistry or Physics as a specialism (However, candidates with Biology and their specialism will also be considered).

Kingsthorpe College is an oversubscribed 11-18 Academy with approximately 1400 students on roll (200 students Post 16). We were graded by Ofsted as Good in all areas in December 2019, and we are now looking forward to the next stage of our journey from good to great. In September 2021, we joined Orbis Education Trust, and this has unlocked further possibilities for colleagues to develop, progress, and make a significant contribution to inspiring the students within our schools. We therefore believe it is an exciting time to join #TeamKC and be part of a community, which is resolute in its drive to help our students leave with the confidence and skills to be able to take part in the great conversations of our times. Kingsthorpe is on a journey to world-class status. Please look at our website https://www.kingsthorpecollege.org.uk for a comprehensive view of our school.

The science department achieves outstanding results year on year, which are above the national average. Triple Science and A-level are popular options across the school, we have excellent exam results at both GCSE and A Level. A good proportion of those students go on to study Science based degrees at university.

At Kingsthorpe College, we believe that an understanding of science is essential for our pupils to engage with the modern world. Regardless of their level of scientific study, pupils should be able to leave Kingsthorpe College with the scientific knowledge needed to think more deeply about their world. Now, more than ever, pupils will need to be equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to make reasoned choices and judgements based on evidence.

This faculty are friendly, hard-working, innovative, and committed to stimulating student interest in the world around them and enjoyment in their studies. We place significant emphasis on working collegiately as a faculty to share our expertise and subsequently enhance the learning experience with our students. Every member of the staff team is involved in a variety of professional learning programmes that take place across the academic year.

The position will start in April OR September 2024 depending on candidate availability

Closing date for applications is: Monday 26th February 2024 at 9:00am

Kingsthorpe College is the kind of school which is dedicated to ensuring that we make a difference, in any way that we can, to both our community and our young people. We are passionate about providing opportunities for all our students to achieve artistic, athletic and academic excellence. We very much believe that our role is to help develop successful learners, confident individuals, and responsible citizens. In addition to ensuring that all our young people achieve their potential in these areas, there is also a genuine commitment to respect for individuals which is demonstrated in the daily life of the College.

One of the first things you notice when you walk into the College is how friendly everybody is to each other – how frequently people smile, take an interest in other people, and find something positive and encouraging to say. We always take the time to celebrate success.

For us, high quality relationships are at the heart of everything that we do. We want our young people to be happy, confident, curious, and resilient learners. We know that this can only happen if relationships, built on trust and mutual respect, are central to all aspects of our work. We believe that when young people feel safe and secure, everything is possible, and we promise to do our utmost to make sure that we unlock the potential in everyone.

All we can ask from our students is that they do their best, and we value hard work, determination, and thoughtfulness highly. We want all our young people to ask themselves just one question at the end of every day – was I better today than I was yesterday? So whilst passing exams, and gaining the necessary qualifications to take that next step, is hugely important, we are equally committed to providing our young people with the space and resources to develop their character. We are proud of the extracurricular provision that we are able to offer, and we work hard to give our students plenty of opportunities to develop their confidence and creativity – both in and out of lessons.

We also believe in clarity of communication, and the power of feedback. We always welcome open and honest dialogue between all those involved in and with the College. We are committed to a restless excellence which can only be achieved through regular feedback, and you will always find us receptive to this. We are excited and optimistic about what the future holds for the young people and community which we serve.

Of course the best way to experience KC is by visiting us, and you will always find our doors open. If you would like to come and see us, please do get in touch.
