Always oversubscribed, we are expanding our school so that more local families can experience the excellent education offered here at Admiral Lord Nelson School for over two decades! Therefore, we are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic Science teacher who works well in a team. We are looking for a specialist with strong subject knowledge, who quickly builds relationships with students and breaks down barriers to learning. We want a teacher who inspires children to achieve their potential and loves to see their students experiencing the joy of success every day in their learning!

Salterns Academy Trust is a learning community where every member of staff understands the difference they can make to our students’ outcomes, both academically and to their personal development. Our commitment to being a UNICEF Rights Respecting School is at the heart of our inclusive ethos and curriculum, with mutually respectful relationships forming the foundation of our happy, successful school. At Admiral Lord Nelson School, we work collegiately with our partner school, Trafalgar School in the pursuit of excellence in Science education so that we are significantly improving the life chances of all of our young people in Portsmouth.

We have a national reputation for being a truly inclusive school with excellent standards and principled curriculum design, having a very high Ebacc entry. Our deep-rooted and longstanding commitment to being a UNICEF Rights Respecting School led to us being the only school invited to a garden party with all the Soccer Aid celebrities hosted by the Prime Minister at 10 Downing Street and we have recently been reaccredited with UNICEF RRS Gold Award status in recognition of our ambassadorial work. We are equally passionate about promoting creativity across all aspects of our curriculum, for which we were the first school in England to hold a Triple Artsmark Platinum Award and were designated the TES Creative School of the Year for 2019. This is a genuinely exciting school to be part of, morally driven by our core values of Inclusivity, Wellbeing and High Expectations; we really do value our staff and place the voice of our incredible students at the heart of all we do!
