Teacher of Science (p/t or f/t) Start January 2025 job summary

About the role:- The Cherwell School wishes to appoint a talented and inspirational Teacher of Science to join us from January 2025. We welcome applications from candidates with specialism(s) in either Biology, Chemistry or Physics. The successful candidate should have the ability and experience to teach their subject up to A Level.

As a Teacher of Science, you will deliver enthusiastic and engaging teaching, creating a stimulating classroom environment that inspires students to fulfil their potential in Sciences. We are looking for someone with good subject knowledge, who is seeking to develop their skills in this vibrant school. This is an excellent opportunity for professional development in a very supportive and caring school with a strong team of like-minded individuals.

We welcome applications from both ECT’s and experienced teachers.


About our school:- We are a high performing and oversubscribed comprehensive school in Oxford with approximately 2,000 students on roll, including 680 in the Sixth Form. We are delighted that we were judged ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted (October 2022), 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.

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

If you would like to have a confidential conversation about the role, prior to application, please email Louise Scott (lscott@cherwellschool.org) or phone 01865 558719.

Education has the power to change lives, communities and society for the better. At RLT we believe that we can achieve more for our pupils, trainees, staff and communities by working together rather than alone.

Our employees benefit from a wide variety of support including extensive continuing professional learning and development opportunities, wellbeing and staff networks and access to Defined Benefit Pension Schemes (TPS and LGPS) for all staff. For more information on what it is like to work for the Trust, and the benefits you could access, please see our “Working in RLT” guide.
