What skills and experience we're looking for

Due to an increase in student numbers, for September 2023 we are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic individual with drive, character and excellent subject knowledge to join our Science Department. This is a full time permanent appointment.

The successful candidate will work within a supportive environment and provide effective and engaging learning opportunities that meet the needs of all students. Applicants will be highly motivated and have a passion to ensure that our learners achieve the very best that they can at all times. The core purpose of the role will be to uphold the fundamental standards of pride, respect and achievement with all learners but also ensure that all students receive the highest standard of bespoke support.

Burnside College is a good school, with outstanding sixth form provision. We put teaching and learning first and are committed to providing a high quality and inclusive learning experience for all. Furthermore, we are committed to the development of staff and you will be joining a supportive school with an excellent environment in which to continue your professional development.

This post would suit an excellent classroom practitioner looking for their first post or someone with a passion for teaching and learning looking for a new challenge.

What the school offers its staff

Burnside College is characterised by its strong community spirit and friendly working environment. Respect is one of our core values and is tangible throughout the school. We believe that strong relationships are the fabric of any successful school. Interactions at Burnside between staff, and with pupils, are based on mutual respect and are positive.

The school has been through a considerable period of change in recent years in order to raise standards and provide the best possible quality of education for our pupils. We were delighted that this was recognised in our 2020 Ofsted inspection. Burnside College was acknowledged to be a good school in all areas with outstanding sixth form provision. Staff are proud to work at our school and proud of the young people in our community.

These improvements have been secured through a real team effort between school leaders and staff. We have a relentless focus on teaching and learning and ensure we routinely consider the latest educational thinking in order to reflect on and refine what happens in classrooms. This goes hand in hand with a strong, caring, system of pastoral support and a focus on the personal development of our pupils.

There is an expectation at Burnside that staff will be determined to do the very best for the young people of Wallsend and always work positively, with the best interest of young people at heart. In return the school offers excellent support and professional development. We offer high quality staff training which is personalised to the experience and needs of the individual. A particular strength is the effective programme of support in place for NQTs and early years teachers. School leaders are considerate of the workload and wellbeing of staff, and the school provides good career progression opportunities.
