What skills and experience we're looking for

The highly successful, thriving and popular Science department is seeking a new Science Teacher to join us on a part-time (0.6) permanent basis.

The Science department runs smoothly and our students achieve well across Key stages 3 to 5. Our core purpose is to fully engage all our students and ignite their curiosity and determination so they can achieve their full potential. The Science department has eleven laboratories at the main Tunbridge Wells campus and six further laboratories at the Sevenoaks campus. All are fully equipped for high quality teaching and learning and one laboratory is specialised for teaching A Level Chemistry. The Science department is supported by a team of four technicians. At KS3 students follow an adapted and extended version of the Activate Science scheme and at GCSE we teach the AQA syllabus with all students studying separate Science GCSE’s.

The ideal candidate will be passionate about the Science curriculum and how this can be taught in an inspiring way to maximise student engagement and success. They will be able to provide effective support to the Science department and steer areas of common interest across the department in order to enhance the quality of learning and achievement.

We welcome applications from creative and dynamic teachers who can contribute to this vision. The successful applicant will be someone who can inspire students. Applications are welcome from experienced teachers and ECTs at this popular and over-subscribed boys’ grammar school with mixed sixth form.

Staff will benefit from a positive working environment, with strong support for professional development and specialist teaching rooms. We aim for high standards and the pursuit of academic excellence, helping every student to reach their full potential through the development of skills, concepts and knowledge, within the framework of a caring community.
