Senior Science Lead

We are now looking for a positive, dynamic and resilient Senior Science Lead to join our
fantastic team in our secondary section.

We believe in loving and cherishing our students, we also have the same ethos for our staff.
We have a well-being strategy where we ensure we do everything we can to support and
develop our staff. Some of the examples are:

The growth mind-set underpins everything we do. We do not believe that some pupils are
bright and that others are not. We believe in the limitless capacity for everyone to achieve
great things. We believe that what we become and what we achieve comes from great
teaching, hard work and fantastic support. We do not allow it to come from your
background. We are looking for a Senior Science Lead who shares this mindset and who is
passionate and motivated by these beliefs.

Our pupils make rapid progress and achieve academic excellence in an environment of love
and care. Our school is a strong family where expectations are high, values are positive and
children are treasured. Our goal is to equip our pupils with the knowledge, skills and
character to lead successful lives.

We provide pupils with a curriculum of the highest quality. We have new state-of-the art
buildings with a wide range of extensive facilities. Our pedagogical approach is rooted in the
science of how children learn. We ask lots of questions, we explain in small steps, we link to
prior learning and we guide first practice. Our pupils think hard about their learning. We
read a lot because it has a profound impact on educational outcomes.

Our teachers get to know the pupils as individuals and build meaningful relationships that
last. We ensure that all of our pupils feel they belong. We explicitly teach our pupils to live
by positive shared values and to hold these deep in their hearts. We are a Rights Respecting
Gold accredited school. This creates our wonderful learning environments and great
behaviours’. We offer a wide range of innovative clubs.​

We maintain a great work-life balance.

An equal opportunities employer.
