King Edward VI School Lichfield is seeking an enthusiastic and talented Science teacher to join our high-performing successful department. This post is fixed term due to staffing changes in the department. The post is 0.7 fte and has every Friday off plus every other Thursday. However, we could also offer some additional hours to a teacher looking for a full time role. We would ideally recruit a teacher with a specialism in Biology although the overriding priority is to secure an excellent practitioner so applications from Physics or Chemistry specialists will also be considered.
As a teacher you will teach Science up to at least GCSE and ideally specialise in Biology at Key Stage 4. Science is popular and successful from Key Stage 3 through to our thriving, successful Sixth Form. In 2023, 80% of Year 11 students achieved at least two GCSE science grades at 9-4 and for the large cohort taking the Triple Science pathway, 50+% of all results were at 9-7 grades. Progress is very strong at GCSE in both Separate Sciences and Combined Science. We have a strong uptake for A-level, with multiple groups for all sciences in both Year 12 & 13. We also teach a successful Level 3 Diploma in Medical Science.
We are looking for a teacher with infectious enthusiasm, excellent communication skills alongside the ability to develop and maintain positive relationships with students, colleagues and parents. We expect the successful candidate to show a passion for their subject, work as part of a team and be willing to participate in all aspects of school life.
King Edward VI School is a popular 11-18 comprehensive school rated Good by OfSTED in 2022 with recognition of outstanding practice and a highly positive ethos. The school is well-regarded within the community and has a reputation for high quality teaching; we have recently expanded, adding an additional form group to accommodate the growing number of children in the local area. Lichfield is a small, vibrant cathedral city which is easily accessible from the surrounding areas.
This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people/vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
This position is subject to a criminal records check from the Disclosure & Barring Service (Formerly CRB) which will require you to disclose all criminal convictions.
