Ambition for excellence, a passion for student achievement and the desire to develop professional skills within a supportive learning community will characterise applications for this post.

Ability to teach all three Science subject areas at KS3 and KS4.

Ability to teach another subject.

The post would suit either an NQT or more experienced teacher.

Visits to the school are warmly welcomed.

As an “Investor in People”, the school provides exceptional opportunities for professional development, with an induction programme and strong support. 

The successful candidate will be required to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service Check.

This post is considered to be a customer-facing position; as such it falls within scope of the Code of Practice on English language requirement for public sector workers.  The school therefore has a statutory duty under Part 7 of the Immigration Act 2016 to ensure that the post holders have a command of spoken English sufficient for the effective performance of the job requirements. The appropriate standards are set out in the person specification. These will be applied during the recruitment/selection and probationary stages.
