We are looking for a fully qualified, highly enthusiastic teacher of Science for a successful school located in Maidenhead. The successful teacher will join a thriving Science Department which is one of the most successful departments in the school.
You will be working alongside well qualified and experienced professionals who provide superb learning and enrichment for their students. Their KS4 and KS5 Science courses are incredibly popular with large uptakes for A Level Science.
The school are warmly inviting applications from qualified teachers of Science, Physics, Chemistry and Biology.
The department is well resourced with high quality laboratories and a fantastic team of technicians. The school itself is a highly successful mixed comprehensive school serving the children of Maidenhead. 1400 boys and girls of all abilities develop the skills and qualities to enable them to excel in the future. The school is led by a superb SLT and the school is highly ambitious, high-achieving and fully inclusive where their students are challenged and supported to achieve excellence.
The school is well placed for access, with good transport links to and from London and surrounding counties. The successful teacher will be joining at an exciting time as they enter the second year of access to phase one of an on-site expansion project, the building of a state-of-the-art three-storey teaching block incorporating science laboratories, classrooms, additional staff rooms and a meeting room. The school believe passionately in music, drama, the arts and sport and have a Dance studio, two Drama studios, a recording studio and practice rooms and an all-weather astroturf to support these.
I have visited this school many times and I have always been struck by the friendly and harmonious campus atmosphere. There is a fantastic line support and a Senior Leadership Team who genuinely want to see you succeed and develop. NQTs are allocated a mentor, a reduced timetable and the opportunity to attend training sessions run by specialists from within the school.
Career opportunities allowing you to grow professionally within the school include working parties and coaching for experienced teachers and leadership training for aspiring and existing middle and senior leaders. There are excellent on-site facilities including use of a fully equipped and well-maintained gym, a café serving hot food and freshly made snacks and staff rooms with plenty of working space, your own laptop, student laptops and interactive whiteboards. In addition, freshly brewed coffee is ready for you during break-time with the occasional treat to help you through the week!
