The Cherwell School is a high performing and oversubscribed comprehensive school in Oxford (approximately 2,000 students on roll, including 680 in the Sixth Form). We achieved GCSE progress results in the top 5% of all schools in 2019. We are pleased that we hold an ‘Outstanding’ rating by Ofsted as we feel this is a fair reflection of the school, not least as we recognize that we have the capacity to develop and improve further. We consider ourselves to be a school which has at its heart “opportunity, responsibility, excellence” and we aim to make this a deeper reality for all of our students and staff in the years to come.

We are seeking to appoint a qualified teacher (holds, or will hold QTS by September 2022) who has a genuine excitement for excellence in the teaching and learning of Science. The successful candidate should enjoy working with young people and be able to make a positive contribution to our successful Science faculty. We welcome applications from candidates with specialisms in either Biology, Chemistry or Physics or with PE/Sports Science backgrounds. This is a fantastic opportunity for an individual who is passionate about the provision of a rich learning experience for students. Should you wish to be part of our future, we welcome your application.

Our aims are supported by our designation as a National Teaching School and as a School Centred Initial Teacher Training provider. We are committed to the professional learning and career development of our staff and work in conjunction with the River Learning Trust to continue to raise standards.

We value the wellbeing of our staff and aim to support colleagues throughout their working lives. Staff report high levels of wellbeing and attribute this to factors such as:
• Well designed, sequenced and resourced curricula which are centralised
• Feedback and marking approaches which are carefully considered for impact and workload
• Clear, centralised Behaviour for Learning System; pastoral teams supported by non-teaching deputy year leaders
• Lower than typical contact hours for classroom teachers and middle leaders
• Excellent in-house and external CPD opportunities and regular opportunities for career development within the school and trust
• Professional support for ECTs provided by experienced teams of staff
