Are you our new Science Teacher? This is a full time, permanent post and is available from 1 September 2021. You must be able to teach at least one specialism (Biology, Chemistry or Physics) to A Level.
We are a successful and heavily oversubscribed 11-18 co-educational, Church of England, comprehensive school of over 1700 students, serving families from the whole of greater Bristol and beyond. We are located at the heart of the city and have a diverse student community with considerable parental support. Our diversity is a strength and something we celebrate. The Redcliffe Sixth Form Centre currently houses more than 600 students taken from our own school and from many other schools across the City.
The School is proud of its academic record, and in 2020 86.7% of GCSE grades were at grade 4 or above. 88.2% of students achieved 5 or more grade 4s or above. 44.1% of students achieved 3 or more grade 7s or above. Sixth form results are high with a 99.7% pass rate and 88.6% at grade C or above. 64% of grades were at grade B or above 34.5% at grade A or above. Most sixth form students continue on to Higher Education, including 10 awarded Oxbridge places, and 1 going to a university in America.
The School was judged in January 2012 and again in April 2015 to be outstanding by Ofsted, and outstanding in our church school (SIAMS) inspection, in each and every category. Ofsted judged Leadership and Management, Behaviour and Safety of Pupils, Quality of Teaching, Achievement of Pupils, and Sixth Form Provision, all as Outstanding.
The Science team seek to deliver lessons which challenge all students by using a full variety of teaching and learning strategies. The student lies at the heart of the assessment process and we use a wide range of formative, evaluative and summative approaches to support them in their learning. We would welcome a colleague with a passion for science teaching who loves to see scientists of all abilities enjoying their science, learning actively and making rapid progress. We provide a variety of development opportunities including outreach to other schools.
Science is a friendly department with a well-qualified, committed team of subject specialists, who enjoy working collaboratively. The department is well supported with three technicians and has a large number of dedicated rooms which are all situated together.
What we are looking for
We are looking to appoint a talented teacher able to teach all three subject areas to GCSE as part of a Combined Science GCSE course. The ability to teach at least one specialism (Physics, Chemistry or Biology) to KS5 is essential.
