We are seeking to appoint a well-qualified, effective and enthusiastic specialist in Science from November 2020 to cover a colleagues maternity leave, at this highly successful, heavily over-subscribed school which is firmly established as one of the highest performing secondary schools in the region (and in the top 5% - 10% of schools nationally).  We gained ‘Good’ in our 2018 Ofsted inspection and as part of the Local Authority’s quality assurance strategy, we have gained Category 1 status, which is the highest category of school performance, for four years running.


Science has an excellent reputation within the Academy as one of the highest performing subject areas. Both attainment and progress in Science is very strong at GCSE and at A-Level, with many students choosing to study Science subjects in the Sixth Form. The successful candidate needs to have the necessary knowledge and skills to teach Science from Year 7 to GCSE. 

A Level teaching is available for suitably qualified and experienced teachers. 


We invite applications from excellent classroom practitioners who can motivate, engage and inspire our students and work collaboratively with colleagues. 


In return, we offer an incredibly positive working environment, passionately believing that our human resources are our most important and valuable resources. Therefore, our staff wellbeing strategy is at the heart of our ongoing improvement work, meaning that middle and senior leaders are committed to ensuring that all staff are happy, cared for, listened to and professionally equipped to fulfil their role to the highest possible standard. Furthermore, opportunities for career progression regularly arise, with the Academy having an excellent record of training and developing our own teachers and leaders from within.


Salary: Pay range between £24,371 - £40,489 per annum according to the Academy Pay Policy.


CLOSING DATE: Monday 28th September 2020, 9.00 am
