The role

An exciting opportunity has arisen within our Science faculty. We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic Teacher of Science to play a significant part within a dedicated and supportive team. You will be working in, and making significant contributions to a team that is committed to continually raising standards. We are a large faculty with a range of subject specialists and two full time technicians to support practical learning in the classroom.

The leadership of the academy is completely determined to create an environment in which teachers can get on with their core role: delivering excellent lessons. To this end, the student behaviour system is clear and simple and easy to administer in lessons. If action is needed beyond these simple steps, the pastoral and senior teams take all the burden away from the teachers, conducting detentions, following up and dealing with parents on your behalf. Teachers at the academy speak of this as one of the major benefits of working here. In addition to this, teachers are trusted to be professionals through:

No unannounced observations
No lesson grading
3 extra INSET days per year for joint team planning
A feedback and recognition policy that lets teachers decide the best feedback mechanism for their own classes, rather than having this prescribed centrally
