You will have experience teaching biology, chemistry, and physics to students across KS3 and KS4; supporting students throughout their GCSE’s and filling them with confidence in their own abilities to achieve the grades they are capable of.

It is important within this role that you can identify student’s strengths and weaknesses in order to work on the topics that students need additional support with. As science is a core subject, you need to be able to manage expectations well of students and manage the classroom effectively so that students have an environment where they can continually make progress. Assessing students learning is a regular part of the role through formative and summative assessments, including fun things like quizzes and projects where students can get creative whilst solidifying their understanding of science. Due to having a large class of students, it is important that you can differentiate instruction to meet the diverse needs and abilities of students, including those with varying academic backgrounds, learning styles and special education needs. You will adapt your teaching strategies and materials as necessary to ensure all students can access the curriculum and achieve success; its all about giving students every opportunity to succeed. Within this role you will contribute to the planning of programmes of study and schemes of work appropriate to the needs of all pupils.

With a modern building, new technology and a range of materials, the school are offering an exciting opportunity to become part of a successful team in a forward thinking, high achieving environment. The science department is a highly progressive department, which has a large team of committed teachers who work together for the benefit of all pupils.
