What skills and experience we're looking for

Are you passionate about teaching Science? If the answer is yes, this is a fantastic opportunity for you!

Our ethos is that students achieve their best when they enjoy their learning. We believe every student has a talent and it is our duty to guide, nurture and support each individual on their journey towards greatness.

This is an exciting opportunity for an ECT or experienced teacher to make a real difference to students in Falmouth School. We are looking for candidates who embody a culture of outstanding practice and have a passion for science that has positively impacted on students’ outcomes, behaviour and engagement in their learning.
