Further details about the role

We are seeking two qualified and enthusiastic teachers to join our Science team from September.

Our Science teachers are already able to deliver Biology, Chemistry and Physics - so when it comes to supporting a new member of staff, they can cater for any specialism and understand what it takes to become a fully rounded Science teacher. We do expect all our Science staff to learn to teach all three sciences at Key Stage 3 and 4, but we prefer to use specialists wherever possible for Single Science GCSEs. We will provide all teaching materials and coach you to build your skills across all sciences, if you need more support.

Orchard School serves a richly diverse community in North Bristol. Our students are wonderful – they value their teachers, knowing that you can make a real difference to their lives. The mission statement of the school, “inspire today, empower for life”, lies at the heart of all that the school does.

We are a friendly school, with a warm and welcoming staff body. We work together, we look after our staff wellbeing, and plan for sustainable, impactful development. Every member of staff is entitled to a coach and we develop all staff through regular, incremental coaching. Our most recent Ofsted report demonstrates we are a seriously good school, committed to becoming the outstanding school our community deserves.

We constantly strive to provide exceptional education through evidence-informed practice. We take the continuing professional development of staff very seriously, offering excellent CPLD. We are the Chartered College of Teaching Hub for Bristol, and fund membership of the Chartered College for all our teaching staff so you can engage with research and contribute positively to CPLD within the school, across our multi academy trust, and beyond.

Commitment to safeguarding
