Required for Jan 2021
(Permanent, Full Time)
Barnwood Park is seeking to appoint a Teacher of Science, to start in January 2021, who will be able to teach Biology, Chemistry and Physics at both Key Stage 3 and GCSE. We are looking to appoint a dynamic and enthusiastic teacher with high expectations, who will be passionate about their subject, able to inspire and motivate young people; they must be committed to the highest standards of teaching and learning, through lesson planning, and high quality assessment.
This is a very exciting time to be considering joining us as we changed from being a girls’ comprehensive school to being a mixed comprehensive school in September 2018 and started expanding our numbers in 2019. We have gone through a period of steep slope improvement over the last few years, since 2012. We won an award from the DfE in 2015 for being one of the most improved schools in the country and we were officially recognised as a Good school by Ofsted in 2019.
We have recently undergone a major refurbishment which saw the addition of a new Sports Hall, new Dance and Drama Studios, a new IT suite, an additional DT room and a new Physics Lab.
We have a very high staff retention rate and are looking for someone who will join our committed team and support the school in its relentless focus on teaching and learning, seeking to increase the rates of progress and student achievements. We have a comprehensive and exciting CPD programme for staff, so whether you are an experienced teacher or an NQT, we can offer you plenty of opportunities to develop.
In addition to this, we can also offer you:
• A strong and supportive Leadership Group
• An excellent body of motivated and innovative staff
• A diverse group of hardworking youngsters of all abilities who thrive on caring, challenging and inspiring teaching
• Professional support and development opportunities which will enable you to work creatively and innovatively in order to deliver high quality educational experiences for the students at Barnwood Park.
The departmental information will provide you with more details of the candidate specifications and school resources.
The application form and further information is available from the school website
The closing date is Wednesday 21 October
