Science is a highly successful subject at The Wavell School. Results are well above the national average with over 80% of students gaining at least two standard passes in Science and with 30% of students studying three separate Sciences.

We are looking to appoint a dynamic classroom practitioner who:

  • has excellent subject knowledge
  • is resilient and resourceful
  • who ideally can teach all Science subjects through to GCSE, although there can be some specialism at KS4 (all considered)
  • sets a high standard and who inspires students to meet this
  • makes learning exciting, leading to high levels of engagement and exam success
  • thrives within a team and who enjoys collaborative working

What the school offers its staff

We provide:

  • exceptional culture and behaviour
  • a supportive and welcoming professional environment
  • a relentless focus on staff wellbeing
  • regular opportunities for continuing professional development
  • structured support for ECTs and trainees, to help you settle and thrive in your new career
  • professional challenge, with professional development opportunities for potential managers

The Science Faculty occupies seven modern laboratories with a preparation room, staff room and resources areas. The team is ably supported by highly experienced technicians. There is a very strong and supportive team spirit.
