Salary: MPS1 – UPS3 £30,000 – £46,525 per annum 

John Taylor Multi Academy Trust (JTMAT) believes in the power of education to improve lives – and the world. As a partner academy in JTMAT, we are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic teacher of science to join our evolving organisation.

The successful candidate will be experienced to A level, or alternatively this post is also suitable for new entrants to the profession. At KS3 we follow the AQA KS3 specification and are continuing this pathway through to GCSE. We are fortunate to be able to offer both the AQA Combined Science and Separate Science qualifications to our students at KS4. We have many opportunities for an enthusiastic scientist to shape the future of our science offer, as we look to develop, refine, and build our curriculum, develop exciting whole school STEAM projects, and collaborate and enhance our welcoming and innovative team.

We welcome applications from those who want to work flexibly, or if you are looking for a full-time role.

John Taylor Free School is a “young” school which opened in September 2018 with a full cohort of 210 Year 7 students. We are in the fortunate position of being oversubscribed for the first 5 years. We are committed to a culture of Professional Learning for staff – we want you to succeed and thrive too.

If you have a passion for excellence and share our vision, we can offer you the opportunity to be part of a successful and progressive Trust, which is committed to ensuring learning is at the heart of all we do.
