Line Manged By: Subject Learning Leader: Science

We currently have a Teacher of Science (chemistry specialism) position available to start as soon as possible.

This post is cover for a vacancy pending a permanent appointment.

St Peter’s is an oversubscribed school, known as a high performing school and nationally recognised for our approaches to character education. Our most recent Ofsted inspection (‘Good’ November 2019) and SIAMS inspection (‘Excellent’ May 2019) indicate the significant progress we have made in developing well rounded students who ‘live life to the full’.

Are you a strong, visionary Science teacher with passion, energy and creativity? Do you inspire young people to excel? Do you want to work with an experienced team of supportive professionals who aim high and achieve excellent results?

We are looking to appoint an outstanding teacher of Science to join our team as soon as possible. Science is a strength at St Peter’s where students enjoy a rich and varied curriculum. They achieve very high results and consistently make excellent progress.

NQTs as well as more experienced teachers are encouraged to apply.

Candidates will be expected to:
• Be able to teach Key Stage 3 Science;
• Be able to teach Key Stage 4 Chemistry/Physics;
• Have excellent classroom management skills;
• Have an engaging style of teaching that can inspire and motivate all levels of ability.

Our students make working here a real pleasure and, as such, we have high expectation for both our students and ourselves.

We offer:
• A welcoming and friendly team of excellent staff;
• A supportive working environment;
• Students with a drive to succeed.

A willingness and ability to offer time and energy to our wellbeing programme and/or extra-curricular provision (which we believe adds significant value to our character based approaches to education, including our Duke of Edinburgh and Ten Tors), will be taken into consideration for applications.

As a Church of England Aided School, in cases of equal merit preference will be given to candidates who are in sympathy with the foundation.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults, and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
