We are a large 'Outstanding' 11-18 Academy and we are looking for a brilliant and dynamic Science practitioner who is passionate about their subject and able to lead by example and inspire others.
Holyrood Academy is entering an exciting period of its development, having joined on the 1st September 2019 the high performing Uffculme Academy trust. We are excited to join a Trust who's aim is to be the leading education provider in the South West. The Academy has been graded 'Outstanding' by Ofsted since 2010. We are a large 11-18 Academy with 1250 students, including 150 post-16 students.
Holyrood is based in the market town of Chard in South Somerset. We are lucky enough to be situated in a beautiful part of the country surrounded by lovely countryside with the rugged Jurassic coastline on our doorstep.
We are looking to appoint a high quality, enthusiastic teacher of science to join our large, successful science department. If you have the desire to make a real difference to the lives of young children and want to join a team of highly dedicated staff, then we would love to hear from you.
At KS4, students currently study either Combined Science or GCSE Biology, Chemistry and Physics. The KS3 curriculum prepares students for these qualifications by emphasising practical and investigative approaches to learning, setting students' acquired knowledge in a real-world context. The department's goal is for all students to understand the relevance of their science learning to their everyday lives, and for the majority to want to pursue their science learning further. In the Sixth form, as well as offering A levels in the single sciences we also offer the BTEC Level 3 Applied Science.
What can we offer you ?
- A supporting, friendly and caring work environment
- a highly professional, talented, innovative and happy teaching and support team who are committed to progression and change in order to further the development of the school
- A supportive Trust who are keen to develop individuals at every stage of their career.
- Access to some of the best educational leaders in the South West
- A trust who is committed to supporting the health and well-being of staff.
