Science Teacher – to start September 2022. This role is suitable for ECT applicants.
This is an exciting role for an enthusiastic teacher as we prepare our students for GCSE and beyond (the school’s first GCSEs will be in 2023). Our oldest Year group started Year 10 in September 2021 so this post is ideally suited to a teacher who is passionate about curriculum design and development, especially at KS4. You will be joining an innovative, ambitious and energetic staff group that seeks to deliver an outstanding curriculum, and will be well supported by an experienced Senior Leadership Team.
Ada Lovelace has an innovative curriculum model – core subjects including science are taught in the morning in 50-minute periods, and science is studied every day by every student. These lessons cover the academic core, with the Practical and Creative subject options, taking place in the afternoon. All students in Key Stage 3 have an afternoon a week of Applied Science session in which they explore the subject in a real world context.
