What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking to appoint a well-qualified, effective and enthusiastic specialist in Science to join us at this highly successful, heavily over-subscribed school which is firmly established as one of the highest performing secondary schools in the region (and in the top 10% of schools nationally). We gained ‘Good’ in our 2023 Ofsted inspection and as part of the Local Authority’s quality assurance strategy, we have gained Category 1 status, which is the highest category of school performance, for four years running.

The successful candidate must demonstrate a strong passion for working with young people and a genuine desire to improve their life chances. They must demonstrate their understanding in the pedagogy of teaching and learning, alongside the skills required for effective classroom management. All candidates must demonstrate their commitment to ensure our students develop as young people and secure the best outcomes possible for their future.

What the school offers its staff

We invite applications from excellent classroom practitioners who can motivate, engage and inspire our students and work collaboratively with colleagues.

In return, we offer an incredibly positive working environment, passionately believing that our human resources are our most important and valuable resources. Therefore, our staff wellbeing strategy is at the heart of our ongoing improvement work, meaning that middle and senior leaders are committed to ensuring that all staff are happy, cared for, listened to and professionally equipped to fulfil their role to the highest possible standard. Furthermore, opportunities for career progression regularly arise, with the Academy having an excellent record of training and developing our own teachers and leaders from within.

The development of our staff is core to our well-being strategy and central in ensuring that we are able to deliver our mission. We will offer you:

  • High standards and high expectations whilst ensuring workload is balanced
  • Professional development opportunities to develop both pedagogy and leadership
  • Friendly and supportive staff body
  • Highly compliant and polite students
  • A work laptop
  • Increased non-contact time to allow for further lesson planning and preparation
  • Friendly cover arrangements
  • A visible and supportive Senior Leadership Team
  • A collective team of staff working under our mission to improve the Academy further
