We are looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic practitioner who, under the guidance of the Director of Science, will lead science across the Wellsway and IKB campus (with a particular focus on Key Stage 4 progress). Applications are welcomed from both current postholders and ambitious teachers with a proven track record of success and the desire to be an outstanding leader.

As a leader in our school, you will work closely with curriculum postholders from other areas in developing and improving teaching and learning and will be responsible for ensuring that every student enjoys an excellent experience across their science lessons.
If you are a highly effective teacher, able to form excellent educational relationships with students and staff and are confident at leading on the development of challenging and engaging schemes of learning, we would love to hear from you. The ability to teach all sciences to GCSE and either physics, chemistry or biology to A Level is essential and the ability to teach physics to A Level desirable.
