This is an excellent opportunity to join our school. We are looking to appoint an exceptional candidate to the position of Teacher of Science for our all through free school. Teachers in the early stage of their career would benefit from the wealth of experience and talent amongst the teachers in Science, which is one of the outstanding departments of our school. ECTs are welcome to apply and would be supported through their two-year induction programme by a supportive and experienced mentor.

We are especially keen to hear from candidates who can offer Computer Science as a second subject.

Our ‘Good’ Ofsted judgement (November 2018) is a strong foundation on which to build and develop the school. The challenge is to sustain and further improve through every aspect of Gildredge House as the school continues to develop.

As Teacher of Science, you will join an outstanding team of inspirational teachers, where you will ensure that our students enjoy and achieve highly in their Science learning. You will be a Science specialist in the secondary phase. We ideally need a strong GCSE teacher as most of your teaching will be in Years 7 – 11. This is an exciting time to join our Outstanding Science Department, with opportunities for professional development ranging from KS2 transition with Year 6 to inspiring our students to choose Science studies at Sixth Form and at university. The ability to teach Computer Science to GCSE would be an advantage, but not essential.

Within the Science department, you will find a team who are dedicated to providing engaging, stimulating lessons to students of all abilities, and classrooms where rapport and relationships are given the highest priority. We plan with creativity and teach with enthusiasm, ensuring that every student reaches their full potential. We aim to help students develop resilience and confidence in the face of a challenging curriculum, not only to prepare them for demanding examinations but also to foster a lifelong love of science and the world around them.

Gildredge House offers:

  • continuity of education for boys and girls aged 4+
  • an expectation of high academic standards leading to Sixth Form studies
  • strong discipline
  • excellent pastoral care
  • a range of extra-curricular activities
  • parent and community involvement

Our school motto: 'Aspire'

As an employee of the school, you would benefit from:

  • A two-week break in the Autumn Term, allowing for holidays to be taken out of peak season
  • A supportive induction programme for new staff to the school.
  • Investment into your career development through appropriate, regular CPD
  • Support and mentoring by a strong Senior Leadership Team and other experienced leaders.
  • Access to a full employee assistance programme, in support of wellbeing
  • Complimentary tea and coffee in our staffroom
  • On-site parking

The deadline for applications is Monday 15th April 2024 at 9.00 a.m.
