We seek to appoint a dynamic and enthusiastic teacher to join our Science team. The School opened with a Science Specialism and it continues to enjoy a prime position in the JCoSS curriculum. The Faculty currently includes Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Psychology, and is housed in excellent facilities with ample resources and a strong sense of Faculty cohesion. Results are excellent: our first GCSE cohort achieved A*-C pass rates well over 90% in all papers. We currently teach the AQA Science specifications at both Key Stage 4 and 5.

 

We need a well-qualified science teacher to teach general Science at Key Stage 3 and their specialism to Key Stage 4. There may be the opportunity for a suitably qualified candidate to teach their specialism at Key Stage 5. These possibilities would be explored at interview.

Required for September 2017

Closing Date: 9am Thursday, 11th May

Interviews: Monday, 15th May, but we reserve the right to interview before the closing date.

The YLC role is at the heart of our academic pastoral structures. Supervised by the Assistant Headteacher for KS5 and supported by a 6th form team of 8 (which includes admin support, careers, UCAS and Oxbridge support and extra-curricular leadership) you will be accountable for the well-being, learning and behaviour for a cohort of 160+ students. The roles of YLC 12 and 13 rotate, so you will induct your year group into the expectations of the 6th form, support them throughout their studies, prepare them for UCAS and other applications, and manage them through final exams and leave-taking from the school. The role is excellent preparation for senior leadership and involves input into many key areas of school life and student experience. Our YLCs teach a two-thirds timetable (approx. 16 hours per week): a variety of subjects can be considered, and there is an advantage for external candidates if they are able to teach Maths, Physics, Geography or English.
