Teacher of Science job summary

Our transition to evolve into an 11-16 secondary school is planned to begin in September 2026 so this post will be ideal for secondary practitioners. We will still have KS2 students for the next few years so anyone with KS2 and SATs experience would also be most welcome to apply.

We already have a secondary approach to our curriculum delivery with specialist teachers providing engaging, challenging and inspiring lessons across all four year groups. Our science curriculum aims to:

Inspire and excite students about science.

Stimulate curiosity, awareness, and challenge through scientific enquiry.

Provide opportunities for collaboration and independent work to develop substantive and disciplinary knowledge.

We intend to make learning fun, active, and thought-provoking by delivering practically driven lessons that challenge, enthuse and engage students. Scientific investigation and the development of key skills is at the heart of our approach to teaching and learning. Above all, science is to be enjoyed.

Commitment to safeguarding

We are committed to the safeguarding and promotion of children’s welfare. We also have a sincere commitment to equal opportunity and to the celebration of diversity, including in our staff recruitment. We welcome applications from all sections of our community very warmly, and we recognise the huge strength and opportunity that comes from diversity in all aspects of our make-up. We will need to obtain references in advance of interview for any candidate short- listed, and all job offers are subject to satisfactory enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service clearance.

Holywell School is a caring, distinctively Christian, community-focussed Church of England School. We aim to continue the historic tradition of Church of England Schools by providing a Christian Values-inspired education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. As a school, we are a loving, supportive community with high aspirations for all. We promote inclusion, we are proud to belong and we value each individual. We look after each other, believe in second chances and aim to be the best we can be so we can serve and support the common good.

Our vision is to ‘Live life in all its fullness’. We aim to be an outstanding Christian learning community where everyone is valued as a unique individual and where everyone feels safe. We will aim to be the best we can possibly be, to treat others as we wish to be treated and to make a positive difference to our community and beyond. We strive to be peaceful problem-solvers with open minds and hearts, living God’s love and being kind.

We are a popular and oversubscribed school of 700 students. 2021-2022 will see our final year of expansion. Although situated in the Local Authority of Central Bedfordshire, we straddle the border and have half of our population from Bedford Borough schools. Students are largely drawn from the two villages of Cranfield and Wootton. There is an increasing number of ‘out-of-catchment’ students who are applying to the school because of its good reputation. As part of Central Bedfordshire’s ‘Schools for the Future’ development programme, we are currently exploring a long-term plan to evolve into an 11-16 secondary school.
