Job summary

Required for September 2021. This is an exciting opportunity for an inspiring and dedicated teacher of Chemistry, to join an outstanding team of practitioners. Candidates wishing to apply should have a passion for their subject and the ability to teach to GCSE and Advanced level. Applications from experienced teachers and NQTs will be considered.

Our students routinely achieve excellent results. In 2019, 86% of students achieved grade 4+ in GCSE Combined Science, 100% in GCSE Biology, 92% in GCSE Chemistry and 98% in GCSE Physics. Biology, Physics and Chemistry are popular at Advanced level and many students go on to study Science at Higher Education.

Ranelagh is an 11-18 coeducational, Anglican Academy (converter) which is oversubscribed and has an excellent reputation for academic achievement and positive school ethos. The school has had four ‘outstanding’ OFSTED reports, with Grade 1 across all areas, but we are not complacent and as such the provision for professional learning and development is something of which we are all very proud.

This post may be suitable for a Newly Qualified Teacher. Potential candidates may also wish to know that our admissions policy enables the school to prioritise the admission of children of staff recruited to posts in which there is a demonstrable skill shortage.

If you have a very good knowledge and understanding of the subject and you are an excellent teacher looking to develop your career in a supportive and progressive environment, we would welcome an application from you. Opportunities for personal development are excellent.

This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment.

About Ranelagh School

Dear Colleague

Thank you for your interest in the post of Teacher of Chemistry at Ranelagh School. In this letter, we aim to provide you with some further insight into our school and our priorities.

Our school has an excellent reputation at local and national level. The last inspection by Ofsted in 2015 judged us to be outstanding in all areas. This was our fourth outstanding report and, whilst we are very proud of this achievement, we are in no way complacent.

In addition to excellence in terms of academic outcomes, our purpose is to provide a supportive, stimulating and secure environment in which young people can thrive. As such we seek to employ inspirational and energetic staff, committed to the school’s ethos. In return, we aim to provide opportunities for continuing professional growth and development for all staff, beginning with a well-established induction programme.

Given that we spend such a significant proportion of our time in the workplace, it is important to take pride and pleasure in what we do here. Teaching and non-teaching staff collaborate well. They are mindful of one another’s well-being and there is a strong sense of collective purpose.

If you are interested in learning more about the role, then please do contact me. If you would like to apply please submit your application form available on the website www.ranelagh.bonitas.org.uk.

We look forward to hearing from you.
Yours sincerely,

Mr Timothy Griffith
