Lavington School is looking for a temporary teacher of science. This is an approximately 0.7 maternity cover post from September (for an NQT) or November (for an experienced teacher). This is a high achieving academy that is imaginative and creative in its approach to teaching and learning. Staff training, development opportunities and career progression are key to our success. We benefit from a wonderful rural setting, surrounded by beautiful and historic countryside. The majority of our students live in nearby villages, and thrive in our supportive, positive, nurturing, environment, achieving academic excellence for all.
We are fully committed to providing high quality education for children whatever their age. We are at an exciting phase in our development. In April 2019 we formed Equa Multi Academy Trust with five local rural primary schools to provide an all through education system. In addition, we are in our second year of delivering sixth form education, as a satellite of Devizes School. The sixth form is expanding, with an increase in numbers and wider range of courses offered here, including A Level Biology, Chemistry and Psychology.
This is an ideal opportunity for an ambitious newly qualified science teacher to gain their first post, or for an experienced teacher. The ability to teach physics or chemistry, preferably to A level, would be an advantage.
The closing date for applications is Monday 13th July 2020 and interviews will be held later the same week.
Further information about the school can be found on the school website.
Lavington School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.We particularly welcome applications from under represented groups including ethnicity, gender, transgender, age, disability, sexual orientation or religion.
