This role provides the opportunity for an experienced teacher or a newly qualified one to join our team with a view to rapidly moving into the A Level teaching team preferably for Chemistry or Physics.

If you get along well with other people and if you enjoy working with highly motivated students, we want to hear from you!

Science is one of the strongest departments in the school and consistently delivers exceptionally high standards in both progress and attainment terms. Students thoroughly enjoy Science lessons at this school with good numbers continuing to A Level. Students are taught a highly practical hands-on curriculum to ensure they develop lab skills alongside superb curriculum knowledge. We are supported by the Russell Education Trust and the successful candidate will have regular support, assistance, and guidance from our excellent senior science adviser on a weekly basis.

We have a lot of information about the school on the website, but we are also keen to welcome applicants to come for a tour and a face-to-face meeting with the head of department.
