What skills and experience we're looking for

We are offering an exciting opportunity for a skilled and enthusiastic Teacher of Science to join our experienced, supportive and successful Science team.

The successful candidate would be expected to teach GCSE Physics to our high attaining students across a range of classes in Years 9-11 and to contribute to the teaching of the Year 7/8 Science course. Physics is a popular choice for students in the Sixth Form and so the potential to teach A Level is an advantage as is the ability to teach Mathematics, and/or a second science subject to GCSE. We are therefore looking for a suitably qualified and/or experienced candidate. Applications from early career teachers with an appropriate academic background are welcome.

What the school offers its staff

Langley Grammar School is a co-educational 11-18 selective school with academy status, located within easy reach of Langley station and the M4.The school was inspected by Ofsted in November 2021, and was graded outstanding in all categories. We have approximately 1240 students, over 330 of whom are in the Sixth Form. The school is heavily over-subscribed and draws students from a wide geographical area and range of backgrounds. Alongside promoting excellent academic outcomes, our school ethos supports students to become confident and well rounded, independent and creative, responsible and caring. Our students are capable, hardworking and a delight to teach. We are a National Teaching School with a record of nationally recognised innovative practice, and an Apple Distinguished School in recognition of our leading-edge use of technology for learning. In recent years major building programmes have included the construction of excellent sports facilities, a distinctive Sixth Form Centre and new classrooms, workshops, laboratories, ICT suites and staff accommodation. In February 2020 we took possession of our new teaching block and the current building programme was completed in autumn 2021. We enjoy fantastic new teaching spaces and communal areas.

Further details about the role

Applications should be returned by midday on Monday 27th March 2023 to Mrs Dionne Cheyne, Head’s PA at vacancies@lgs.slough.sch.uk. Interviews will be held thereafter. We reserve the right to interview promising candidates prior to the closing date.
