Are you passionate about science? Are you a dynamic, enthusiastic, creative teacher? Do you want to want to work in an Outstanding school on the edge of Dartmoor National Park? If so, we want to hear from you.
Required from September 2021, we are looking for a full time Teacher of Science to teach across all Key Stages. The ability to teach OCR Cambridge National, Level 1/2 Health and Social Care is an advantage but not essential. Whether you are new to teaching or more experienced, we want an outstanding practitioner who can demonstrate their drive and desire for excellence in the classroom and inspire our students to join our supportive and innovative team.
Science is a popular and high achieving subject and we consistently have a large proportion of students opting for triple science at GCSE. We also have large numbers of students studying at least one science subject at A-level (including Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Psychology and BTEC Applied Science) with excellent exam results. If this sounds like the school for you then please get in touch.
