Are you ambitious? Do you like teaching? Above all, do you care about young people?
If the answer is yes to these three questions, then why don’t you come and work with us at Wigston Academies Trust?
We are looking for a dedicated and passionate Teacher of Science to assist in leading, managing, monitoring, evaluating and improving the teaching and learning of Science within the Trust to cover maternity leave.
Our schools have a proud, strong record of high quality pastoral care and we are a friendly staff who care about what we do and how it impacts on our students. We are rapidly expanding too due to a renewed confidence in our community.
Teachers that come and work for us do well. If you are keen to learn and make sure that young people are at the heart of everything you do, then there are many opportunities for you here and at all levels.
If you would like to visit us before you apply, you will be very welcome. Please contact Melanie Woods who will arrange a visit.
We have two schools in our Trust, Wigston Academy (11 to 16) and Wigston College (16 to 19) and there are opportunities to teach in all three key stages. We also have a pre-school, Tiger Tots.
All three establishments are rated by OFSTED as good for their leadership and the behaviour of their students. OFSTED say:
- Pupils are keen to do well. They follow instructions from their teachers promptly.
- Pastoral care is a strength of the school. Pupils and parents say that they appreciate and value the care and support provided in meeting the needs of individual pupils.
- The behaviour of pupils is good, as demonstrated by their calm conduct around the school site. They wear their uniform smartly and are punctual in getting to lessons.
Closing date for applications: 10am, Thursday, 26th May 2022
