You will be committed to continuous improvement and strive to be the best teacher you can be. As such you will deliver exceptional lessons and secure outstanding learning, progress, and attainment for every pupil.

At Mercia School, Science lessons are:

1. Based on a carefully constructed, sequenced and ambitious curriculum.

2. Demanding and carefully planned so that all pupils make strong progress and secure necessary disciplinary knowledge.

3. Taught in a traditional way that gives pupils time to practice and master content.

4. Engaging with an emphasis on practical science and science in industry.

5. Focused on learning, retention and strong foundations, and preparation and readiness for GCSE and A Level study.

All teachers contribute to the pupil elective and enrichment programme and are expected to engage in all aspects of school life.

What the school offers its staff

Reasons to join Mercia School:

  • Outstanding School - Mercia is one of a small number of schools that is graded as outstanding. You will have access to sector-leading practice
  • Team - You will join an ambitious, talented and positive team of leaders and staff.
  • Support - Leaders and teachers have fantastic initial and on-going support to fulfil their roles. Senior Leaders work hard to support teachers and ensure their time is protected.
  • Exceptional behaviour - Pupils at Mercia behave impeccably. We believe teachers should be able to teach and pupils should have an appetite to learn. Our centralised and consistent behaviour systems improve wellbeing for all.
