A full-time teacher of science (chemistry) is required for September 2021 to teach Year 9 and GCSE chemistry, with a shared responsibility for Year 7 and 8 general science. There may also be the opportunity to teach A-level for the right candidate. This is a new role within the department and is in response to an increase in pupil numbers.
Claremont Fan Court has a strong science tradition and standards in this department are high; GCSE chemistry achieved 80% A* to A grades last summer. Applicants will be expected to demonstrate an effective teaching style, have a sound knowledge of general science, and have a strong degree in the chemical sciences.
The role could suit an NQT for whom first class support will be given or an experienced teacher looking for a new challenge. A willingness to contribute to the co-curricular and pastoral life of the school is essential.
In return you can expect all the benefits of a thriving independent school: a competitive and progressive salary, pension, professional development, laptop, cycle scheme, lunches in term time, free parking and single accommodation on site may be available or a means tested rent subsidy.
“The quality of the pupils academic and other achievements is excellent” (ISI inspection January 2017)

Claremont Fan Court School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Applicants will be required to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
The post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and the school is therefore permitted to ask job applicants to declare all convictions and cautions (including those which are "spent" unless they are "protected" under the DBS filtering rules) in order to assess their suitability to work with children.
