What skills and experience we're looking for

An opportunity has arisen to join our Science Faculty to support the teaching of Science at GCSE and A-level. We are looking for an enthusiastic and positive practitioner, ideally with previous experience of successful A-level teaching. Our priority is very much to recruit the best classroom practitioners who can ensure our students arrive at the Academy exited about the day ahead and leave each day talking about the excellent learning they have experienced.

What the school offers its staff

Great Western Academy runs a successful enrichment program for all students from 3.10 to 4.15 Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. The subjects studied are as diverse as Astronomy, Orchestra, Volleyball, Pokemon and Scrabble. Enrichment broadens and deepens a student’s range of experiences at school and gives them the opportunity to learn with other age groups. All teachers will run one enrichment session a week as part of their directed hours. It is an opportunity to engage students’ interest in an area of your own interest.

Great Western Academy aims to radically improve the life chances of every student who attends. Our new building and state-of-the-art facilities help us to achieve this, but it is the fantastic team of staff who turn our vision into reality. If you have the proven ability to inspire students in the classroom and beyond then this provides you with an exciting opportunity to further shape your practice and develop your career.

Additional benefits of working at GWA include:

  • Average class sizes of 26 in years 7 to 11
  • Excellent CPD opportunities
  • State of the art facilities
  • Leading edge ICT, including a laptop provided for all staff
  • Free parking
  • Free Medical and Wellbeing Support Service
  • Easy access to the A419 with free parking on site

Commitment to safeguarding

Great Western Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and we expect all staff to share this commitment and undergo appropriate checks. All posts within the Trust are therefore subject to an Enhanced DBS and barred list check.
