What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking to appoint an excellent practitioner to join our successful Science Department as a parttime Teacher of Science.

Our values underpin our“Waingels Ready”expectations that we have for everyone within the Waingels community. These expectations form the basis of everything we do, and everything we believe in as a school and as a community.

We are also very proud of the achievements of our students. Under the new measures our students at Key Stage 4 have made very good progress. We are delighted that the vast majority of our students stay on to our Sixth Form and that over 95% of our leavers gain a place at University or choose to enter apprenticeships and employment.For Science 70% of students achieved at least two 9-4 grades at GCSE level.

We are looking for a colleague who is an excellent classroom practitioner and has the passion to build the profile of Science within the school. We have motivated and committed A level students, many of whom choose to continue to study Science at University and we would like to continue to develop this enthusiasm further down the school. The department consists of 12 experienced Science teachers and 3 experienced Science technicians.

If appointed, you would join a strong and friendly team of professionals who continually strive for excellence and improve their practice through a range of CPD activities, including professional dialogue and discussion of evidence based pedagogy. The successful applicant will be required to teach KS3 and KS4 with the possibility of teaching KS5 in the future.


What the school offers its staff

Science is taught in 10 themes in a spiral curriculum, revisiting ideas and topics throughout students’ time at school. At KS4 we offer a broad range of qualifications from Separate Science GCSEs, Combined Science GCSE and Entry Level Science. At KS5, as well as teaching Biology, Chemistry and Physics A Level, we run a Level 3 BTEC course in Applied Human Biology.

Our students follow an academic core curriculum throughout Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. This includes the study of History, Geography and a Language as well as English, Maths and Science. But our students also have the opportunity to do a range of practical and vocational subjects including a wide range of creative and performing arts, physical education and other humanities like Business studies, Psychology and Economics.

Outside the formal curriculum we offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities and clubs. Our students travel the world – recent trips have been to China, Poland, Berlin, Skiing in Utah, and Barcelona, along with many opportunities to attend fieldwork, theatres and museums more locally. Our students are also very active in the community working alongside local and overseas charities to raise money for good causes.

If you feel your values and ethos align with ours, this is an exciting opportunity for you! We are looking for someone with energy and vision that is ambitious for themselves and the young people of the school.

Working with us offers you the opportunity to;

  • Join a positive school where effort and success is celebrated
  • Engage in excellent and personalised professional development opportunities
  • Have the support of a dynamic leadership team to ‘take risks’ in a supportive environment
