Ideally the School will be looking to appoint a Biology specialist, however would consider applications for other science specialists. The School do not struggle with staffing and there is no large turnover in personnel, they would like to make sure that they explore all avenues to appoint the very best teacher available for September to continue the already great Science teaching delivered at Key Stage 3 and 4.

Teaching resources at the school are excellent, the Science department is strong and has a mix of experienced teachers which makes for an enjoyable atmosphere.

The SLT and NQT Coordinator at the school are geared up to making you an effective practitioner if yet to complete NQT year. Behaviour at the school is generally excellent, however there are certain students in certain year groups that can display more challenging behaviour (which is no different to any secondary comprehensive school) and as such you will need to be able to demonstrate the appropriate strategies to manage this. They do cater for students of all abilities and as such being able to create differentiated and engaging lessons is a very desirable trait and will act as a tool to ensure behaviour is good. Science continues to be a very popular subject at the school and results at Key Stage 3 and 4 are very good.
The School will offer a competitive package and a clear pathway for progression. They have an excellent track record of promoting from within and members of the SLT were originally class teachers.
