MPS/UPS & TLR 1B (£10,586)

Required from 01 September 2023

We are seeking to appoint a qualified, creative and enthusiastic Head of Science who is passionate about

Science and determined to make a difference. The post is a permanent contract.

The school has been through change in recent years including joining the Lighthouse Schools Partnership

(LSP) Multi Academy Trust alongside several our feeder schools and Gordano and Backwell secondary


The school has a distinctive character and ethos which is unashamedly child-centred and emotionally

intelligent in the way relationships are managed between staff, parents, students, and governors. The

school has a House system at the heart of its culture with vertical tutoring as a key facilitator. There are

four houses - Bilbie, Hauteville, Moreton and Rodney.

The successful candidate will be a highly ambitious and outstanding teacher who wishes to further develop

their career. The post holder will be highly driven and motivated to lead and continually improve the

Science Department.

The Science Department has a good balance of specialists and want to maintain an excellent tradition of

specialist teaching for the separate sciences.

Science has a very high profile at Chew Valley School. A level teaching is a particularly important part of

our teaching and many of our sixth formers go on to study Science at Russell Group Universities. The

Science Department makes a significant contribution to STEM education and there are many opportunities

provided for linking education in science to practical applications in the world of work and research.

The Science Department is an extremely friendly one with a range of experience and expertise, supported

by a dedicated Lab Assistant team. 

Closing Date: 1st March 2023

Interviews will be held on Monday 13 March 2023.
