An opportunity has arisen for a talented, innovative and inspirational teacher of chemistry to join the Chemistry department. There is a vibrant, collaborative spirit within the department. The ideal candidate is someone with high professional standards, enthusiasm, energy and a clear sense of teamwork. They also need to demonstrate a real passion for the subject, and have the ability to convey this to the pupils. The applicant will be expected to fulfil the teaching requirements as directed by the Head of Department, according to the overall aims of the School. The teacher can expect to teach classes from Lower School 1 (Year 7) to the Upper Sixth (Year 13).
The Chemistry department is a well-equipped, bright building, which had a considerable refurbishment in the summer of 2018, and all laboratories are of a high specification. There is also a science lecture theatre and a discovery room creating an attractive teaching environment. The department is very well supported by two dedicated lab technicians which enables us to incorporate a significant level of practical work and demonstrations into our teaching which we believe strongly enhances students’ experiences.
The teacher will also be expected to offer support to the learning, pastoral and co-curricular needs of the individual students through the House system, as a tutor and the co-curricular programme. It is expected that these duties will be carried out to a high standard to ensure the all-round quality of education for all of the pupils.
