Why should you choose us?

We are focused exclusively on the STEM curriculum and the individual needs of every young person in our charge. We are not entirely bound by the usual performance measures of mainstream schools because of our specialist curriculum and unique mission. Our focus on the “purpose” and “context” of learning leads to high levels of engagement and an ethos built on mutual respect, rather than compliance. Many of our students have previously not thrived in large mainstream schools and, in this small, safe environment, we have the unique ability to understand every young person individually, their dreams, ambitions, challenges and strengths.

We benefit from industry standard machinery and equipment including, state the art technology to facilitate 21st century teaching, including fifteen 3D printers, two laser cutters, three Bridgeport Vertical millers, three Colchester manual lathes and CNC (Computer Numerically Controlled) 5-axis milling machines and lathes, waterjet cutter and high spec PCs for the use of every taught student. The machinery and equipment is localised in open plan rooms to facilitate independent, real-life skill development, fit for the future. In addition to this, the department consists exclusively of graduate scientists and Engineers, with a wide range of specialism.

We are looking for a passionate leader of maths and science, with credentials of any of the following physics, and/or maths teaching - the role will involve teaching GCSE maths. Ideally, a maths/science graduate, though an Engineering graduate may well have the credentials needed for this role.


  •  Salary up to £ 51,872 
  •  A school that is fully dedicated to developing every child to reach their full potential, irrespective of their starting points.
  •  Collaborative working within our shared family of schools to support our endeavours to work smarter and achieve an effective balance between home and work.
  •  A dedicated and friendly team of professionals who are keen to develop and learn.
  •  Excellent CPD opportunities to grow and to develop through mentorship and coaching.
  •  A successful ECT support programme.
  •  Onsite parking.
  •  Onsite canteen with locally sourced ingredients.
