Full Time or Part Time

MPS/UPS plus fringe

Start date: September 2024

We are looking to appoint a talented, enthusiastic and ambitious teacher of Science, preferably speciality in Chemistry or Physics, to join our highly successful Science Faculty. Our Science results at GCSE and A level are outstanding, with 92% achieving grade 9-4 at GCSE combined science and 100% achieving 9-4 in Triple Science qualifications. A very high proportion of students take triple science. Our huge sixth form offers plenty of opportunities to teach at KS5, with 3 classes each year in every science A level and with outstanding results (above 85% A*-B in all three subjects). The department benefits from highly specialist facilities, including 6 new labs in addition to 8 original labs and a large technician team. This is an exciting opportunity for someone who wants to join a high performing school and gain significant experience to further enhance their career,like one of our staff members:

"Having studied biomedical sciences to masters level, I initially worked as a Research Assistant. I then went on to travel and work as a teacher of English in Thailand and South Korea. I really enjoyed the teaching but missed the science, so I decided to return to my specialism through teacher training at the University of Hertfordshire. Sandringham was one of my training placements and I really enjoyed it here. The faculty is really supportive and I loved teaching here during the placement, so I applied for a teaching role as soon as it became available. I am now in my third year having completed the ECT process and I am really enjoying taking on new challenges this year, such as A level teaching, where I can really use my subject expertise. I have also loved being part of the wider school, such as participating in residential trips abroad and forming a great relationship with my form group. The school offers excellent CPD opportunities throughout the ECT journey and this support is continuing - I am about to embark on A level CPD through STEM learning. It has been a great place to start my teaching career and develop my experience and expertise." - Sara, Science Teacher
