FTE Temporary (Maternity Cover)

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic Scientist to join a fully committed, mutually supportive and forward looking department in our 11-18 school.

Thomas Adams has a strong reputation and is regularly oversubscribed.

The department is very successful across all key stages and Science subjects are very popular at A Level. The ability to offer some Biology at both KS4 and A Level could be an advantage, although our priority will always be for an outstanding practitioner in the classroom. A willingness to be part of a team and to contribute to the overall benefit of the students is essential. The teaching of Science takes place in well-resourced, modern laboratories, supported by an experienced technician team. There are departmental TLR’s which are regularly reviewed and could be within the scope of the right candidate. The ability to offer Chemistry at KS4 and 5 could be an advantage.

Thomas Adams is now a member of the 3-18 Education Trust, a collaboration of successful schools in Shropshire, all with the same goal of excellence in education.

We have two main sites on our 30 acre campus in Wem, a small rural market town.

Our Lowe Hill buildings cater for years 7 – 11, providing excellent facilities for all curricular areas. At our Noble Street site, we have our Sixth Form, housed in the attractive grammar school building. We also have our thriving boarding provision, Adams House, which accommodates students from throughout the UK and overseas.
