Penrice Academy is a truly outstanding school, with wonderful students and forward thinking, inspirational staff. We are highly successful with year-on-year exceptional results which now put us in the top 7% of schools nationally. We provide our students with the knowledge, skills, and attributes to be victorious as they move to the next stages of their education and lives. As a school community we have a relentless drive and ambition to provide the best possible educational experience for each and every one of our students.

Penrice Academy is part of Cornwall Education Learning Trust (CELT), a family of Cornish Primary and Secondary Schools, with a strategic vision to ‘learn together to help every child achieve more’. This is an exciting time to join our large, dynamic Trust, which is responsible for educating learners across four secondary schools, one junior school and eight primary schools with a Free School (primary) to open in September 2021. There are extensive opportunities to work collaboratively with experienced professionals and leaders across the Trust, with unparalleled CPD and career development prospects.

Our Science specialists have carefully designed a curriculum to be challenging and inspirational to all students, giving students excellent knowledge of Science and a deep understanding of the role of Science in society. We are looking to appoint a Deputy Head of Science to take a leading role in our large, creative and dynamic department, where we consistently inspire students to leave Penrice with a love of Science.

We would like an innovative teacher, with experience of leading others, to join our team, bringing further creative thought to continue our journey forwards. This role will evaluate the impact of the curriculum design, curriculum delivery and the progress of all students, alongside the Heads of Science. Using data to identify areas of development and design curriculums that continuously improve student experience and progress in Science, we aim to ensure that every student, no matter their starting point, makes maximum progress.

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced teacher to take a leading role in our Science team. We offer a diverse range of professional improvement opportunities for all staff.
