Kenilworth Multi Academy Trust has two vacancies to cover a period of maternity leave for two Teachers of Science from early January 2022, working 3 days per week and from the end of March 2022 for a full time role. The vacancy is based at Kenilworth School and Sixth Form.
Kenilworth School and Sixth Form is rated as Outstanding by Ofsted (2013) and as the only secondary school in the community of Kenilworth, is oversubscribed with motivated and well behaved pupils.
The school is well resourced to support the delivery of the subject. The post holder will join a supportive team with opportunities for professional development
Our educational ethos encourages our students to be responsive, resilient, to have reasoning, be reflective and resourceful in their learning.
Due to two members of the team going on maternity leave in 2022, two opportunities have arisen for a part-time and a full time Teacher of Science to join a busy, dynamic and thriving department of twenty teachers. The successful applicant should be aspirational, creative, dynamic, innovative and have a genuine engaging enthusiasm for the teaching and learning of science. The department is well supported with a team of Science Technicians.
As a Teacher of Science you should be able to teach science across all ability ranges from years 7 to 10 only.
We can offer you:
• Excellent CPD opportunities
• A supportive team of colleagues within the Department and across the school
• A positive, community school environment with an innovative learning culture
• A dedicated and forward looking management team, with highly skilled staff upholding high expectations and aspirations for our students
• PiXL network access and other on-line resources to support the development of student learning
• A wide enrichment programme in which you can participate
• Employee well-being benefits via our healthcare programme to include health diagnostics, physiotherapy, 24/7 GP and mental health support, retail and gym discount, free flu vaccination, a laptop, free parking and use of an on-site fitness suite
We would welcome applications from NQTs or experienced teachers.
Kenilworth Multi Academy Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Candidates will therefore undertake an enhanced DBS check.

About Kenilworth School and Sixth Form
Kenilworth School and Sixth Form is recognised as being graded 'Excellent' in all areas (Ofsted February 2013) but we are ambitious and continue to better ourselves in every way possible. It became a Multi Academy Trust in January 2019 and currently has one other school within the Trust.
We combine high aspirations with a care for individual students. Our students are happy and confident individuals, who enjoy good relationships with their fellow students and the staff. We are a friendly, orderly school with a well-earned reputation for academic, sporting and personal achievement. In this environment students are given every chance to grow and achieve success.
We emphasize the development of skills such as team building, effort, responsibility, healthy competition and leadership. Our students achieve their best because of the range of experiences that we provide in an environment that is positive, supportive and forward-thinking.
Kenilworth School & Sixth Form embraces its role as a comprehensive school serving the whole community. In addition to the good work carried in the classroom there are many clubs and activities that take place outside of school hours. Our former pupils are to be found in many diverse and successful roles, most having moved through further and higher education. Students regularly achieve excellent academic results, well above the national average, and the Sixth Form Centre is very successful in providing a transition to higher education.
Students achieve their best when school and home work is in harmony. We value the contribution made by parents, Trustees, governors and the community to ensure that we maintain high standards in all aspects of school life.
