Malmesbury School requires a dynamic, enthusiastic and well-qualified teacher of Science to join the Science Faculty. The ability to teach Physics or Chemistry to A Level would be an advantage. The school occupies a modern building with a suite of laboratories built around a faculty office and prep rooms. All labs have an interactive whiteboard or Clevertouch screen and computer. Students follow either AQA Trilogy Combined Science or the AQA Separate Sciences at GCSE with exam results for the last few years being exceptional. We have large numbers of students studying at least one science subject (Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Psychology) at A-level. The Science Faculty has an ethos of “Inspiring and Equipping young people to discover their world” and we believe in using practical work to inspire our students and to support them in developing their investigative skills. In 2018 the school was awarded the Platinum Science Mark, which recognises the outstanding work of the Science Faculty. The faculty has a very successful YouTube Channel and a Facebook page which we encourage you to visit. Staff have easy access to high quality CPD such as subject specialist training and the Outstanding Teacher Programme through the Avon Teaching School Alliance.
At Malmesbury School our vision is to be a happy, caring and excellent community. We are proud to be a truly comprehensive school providing an education of the highest quality for all the students within Malmesbury and the surrounding area.
In March 2015 we established the Athelstan Multi Academy Trust which consists of three secondary schools (Malmesbury School, Bradon Forest School and The Dean Academy), two in North Wiltshire and one in Gloucestershire. The Trust offers further career development opportunities for colleagues to work across more than one school.
Malmesbury School is a highly successful school that offers unparalleled support and opportunities to staff who wish to develop their skills and leadership. The school is well situated just north of the M4 (J17), within easy travelling distance of Bristol, Bath, and Swindon and just on the edge of the Cotswolds.
The closing date for applications is noon on Monday 20th January 2020 with interviews taking place week beginning 27th January 2020.
