Description

We are looking for a well-qualified and enthusiastic teacher of Science to join our successful Science department. This post could suit an ECT as well as a more experienced candidate. A specialism in Chemistry or Physics is desirable but is not essential.

The department is comprised of seven members of staff, including the Head of Department. Currently there are six GCSE classes, including one Triple Science class and three KS5 classes. Our key stage 4 and 5 results have been on a three year upward trend, making this an excellent time to join the Science team. The Department benefits from a weekly timetabled collaborative planning period.

The person appointed will be well supported through our teaching and learning coach, a well-established professional studies programme and through a comprehensive induction process. The school offers bespoke CPD opportunities ranging from National Professional Qualifications support to supporting MA programmes.

Our most recent OFSTED inspection in February 2019 made the following comments about teaching and relationships at school:

  • Teachers are wholehearted in their desire for pupils to achieve well. Relationships between teachers and pupils are constructive and are built on trust and mutual respect. This enables pupils to have the confidence to ask for help and support when they are stuck or unsure.
  • Pupils conduct themselves in an orderly manner. They are welcoming, self- assured and act in a polite and respectful way. Lunchtimes are calm, with groups of pupils engaged in friendly conversation.
  • The majority of pupils display a positive attitude towards their learning. They are keen to succeed and value the efforts made by their teachers in supporting them in lessons
  • We are a school that have a desire and understanding of how to succeed and provide an environment that is stimulating to students and staff alike. We understand that this can only be achieved by investing in our staff and ensuring they are supported in their own professional development. We have high expectations of staff, as we do students. If you are someone who wants to develop as a professional and have a real impact on individuals then we are the place for you.

You will be joining a highly skilled staff, who are supportive, show determination and resolve. We have a desire to continue our journey to being the best we can be, we are true believers in ‘Better never stops’ as it is the continual development that makes us what we are. We are also a school where team work and enjoyment is central to our success as it is these that keeps us going when times are tough.
