Teacher of Science
The rate of pay will be Main Pay Scale / Upper Pay Scale
Governors are seeking applications from suitable applicants for a full-time Teacher of Science to join us in September 2021. Part-time may be considered for outstanding candidates.
We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic biology/chemistry/physics/science teacher to join our experienced faculty of Science staff. The successful applicant will be required to teach at all levels of the biology/ chemistry/ physics/ science curriculum throughout the secondary phases, although their deployment will be dependent upon their strengths and experience.
It is important that the successful candidate is a good fit in our team, and so they may be highly experienced or just starting out on their teaching journey, what matters to us is their passion for teaching, strength as a classroom practitioner and love of their subject area. NQTs who can demonstrate the potential to be outstanding teachers are encouraged to apply.
The College encourages applications from those of the Catholic faith, but it is not a barrier to appointment if candidates do not have that faith background provided they support the ethos of the College. We are extremely proud of our ethos which comes in very large part from our Jesuit Associate School membership and Catholic Diocesan heritage. This teaches us to be grateful for the gift of teaching that we have and to be generous in using it for the good of our pupils.
Given the current circumstances surrounding Covid19, it is likely interviews will be managed differently to our normal process and may involve a mix of online and in person (with appropriate social distancing measures) activities by arrangement with the shortlisted candidates.
Closing date for applications is 9am, 19th April 2021, although the College reserves the right to interview as soon as it has a suitable field of candidates and so encourages early applications.
We welcome further discussions about the post and these can be conducted using a variety of online platforms or by telephone. Please make contact with us to discuss this if it will be helpful to you.
This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people/vulnerable adults and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
