What skills and experience we're looking for

Wadebridge School is a popular and highly successful school located in the South West of England on the North Coast of Cornwall. We are looking to appoint a lively and enthusiastic graduate with a passion for Science. The position would suit both an experienced teacher or an Early Careers teacher. Ideally we would need the position to be filled for a September start but will negotiate a mutually convenient start date with the right candidate.

What the school offers its staff

At Wadebridge we try to balance an unwavering focus on progress and achievement for all, with working tirelessly to support our young people in every aspect of their lives; standing alongside them to build the skills and strategies needed in order to remove barriers to their learning and/or social and emotional development. As a school we are committed to promoting the health and wellbeing of everyone in our school community and this starts with our staff: health and wellbeing is the number one priority on all our school improvement and professional growth plans. In 2020 our work in this area was recognised by Carnegie Centre of Excellence for Mental Health in Schools when we were achieved a Gold Award (the full report can be accessed here).

Some of the strategies we have implemented include:-

  • Over 110 colleagues at all levels have completed a two-day training programme with MHFA England to be certificated as Mental Health First Aiders
  • We have an extensive and highly effective student support team
  • A dedicated team of Health Champions focussing on strategies to promote positive staff wellbeing
  • Fully paid wellbeing time built into the school calendar each half term

Further details about the role

Science has generous allocations of curriculum time and we deliver a spiral curriculum in both Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. The successful candidate will be required to teach Science across the full ability range at Key Stages 3 and 4. We start GCSE Science in Year 9 with around 80% of pupils studying AQA Trilogy and the others choosing separate Biology, Chemistry, Physics courses in both Science option groups.

The Science department at Wadebridge School is well resourced and consists of a committed team of ten teachers, three technicians and a subject specific HLTA who are supported and led by an experienced management team.

Commitment to safeguarding

Wadebridge School is committed to safeguarding children and the successful applicant will be required to undertake an enhanced DBS check. All short-listed candidates will be subject to appropriate on-line/social media searches.
