It is an exciting time at Becket Keys Church of England School (Outstanding, 2014). We are working hard to build upon the exam successes of our founding cohorts, whilst also establishing our new 6th Form into its sixth year.

As part of our growth plan, we are seeking a teacher for our highly successful Science Department. If you can deliver rigorous and engaging teaching to students, we want to hear from you! ECTs would be welcome to apply; we have an excellent track record of supporting teachers in the early stages of their career. However, we also would benefit from someone joining the team who has recent A level teaching experience, so more experienced staff are also encouraged to consider this opportunity.

We are open minded to welcome scientists of any specialism. You will need to be ready to teach across our full science curriculum at Key Stage 3 and then specialise for Key Stage 4 and 5. We have an engaging curriculum that features a great deal of practical science - students really enjoy their science lessons here. We are looking for energetic and passionate teachers who enthuse about the science curriculum.

There are opportunities to contribute to school wide curriculum development especially in STEM activities that enrich our students' experience. If you are looking for a first leadership role, this could be for you!

The Department has a supportive and welcoming team who are always happy to support each other. If you are an enthusiastic candidate ready for the first step in your career or seeking a new challenge, we would like to hear from you. The Russell Education Trust offers a wealth of support and expertise to help you develop as a teacher. As such, an ECT would be welcome to apply.

The appointee will be committed to our high expectations and core values - we welcome applications from teachers irrespective of their faith or belief. However, we ask for applicants to appreciate and respect the beliefs of others and have strong moral principles.

Staff of the school benefit from priority admission for their children. Our admissions policy effectively guarantees staff a place in the school for their children. With over 800 applications for our 150 places each year, this is a significant perk! In addition, staff will be provided with a comprehensive induction programme and laptop, childcare vouchers are available, and childcare is available at a neighbouring provision with discounted rates for staff members.

For further information about our school, please visit our website at Please email us at if you would like to discuss this role further. Visits are encouraged, so please email us for details of our forthcoming tours.
