Teacher of Science required from January 2018
There is the possibility of a TLR 1a for experienced colleagues who are appointed to the additional post of Head of House.
PROUD TO MAKE SUCCESS HAPPEN
Uxbridge High School is an ambitious and dynamic converter academy with over 1,200 students aged 11 -18. We have much to celebrate at Uxbridge High School including a committed and focused staff, outstanding facilities, strong relationships with the community and school partners, supportive Governors and a thriving sixth form. We value the successes of every child, whatever their starting point. All of this takes place within a truly comprehensive and multicultural school that reflects life in modern Britain.
Our school values have been developed by students and staff and form the basis of our ethos and culture. All members of our school community subscribe and work towards always being: Positive, Respectful, Open Minded, Unique, Determined: Proud to Make Success Happen.
The school is seeking to appoint a new member of staff, who preferably specialises in Biology and Physics, to work within our hard working and dedicated Science team of ten staff. Science is a popular subject at the school, both at Key Stage 4 and especially at Sixth Form, with results regularly exceeding National Averages. All lessons are taught in our well maintained, specialist laboratories. All candidates must be able to teach to A Level. The post is open to someone looking for their first post as an NQT or to a more experienced practitioner.
We would particularly welcome applications from more experienced colleagues looking to combine a teaching post with the whole school pastoral role of Head of House for which a TLR 1a is available.
These roles are pivotal to our success and would support the school in the delivery of the Science curriculum area by aiming for conditions in which teachers can operate at their optimum effectiveness so that all students achieve their full potential.
The successful candidates will be:
- leading by example, through outstanding practice and professionalism;
- caring about students, their learning, and their futures;
- driven to make a difference, to overcome barriers, to be relentless in enabling all students to make exceptional progress;
- Committed to your own personal development and to collaborative, consultative working.
We would welcome applications from exceptional teachers and leaders who can evidence their experience of delivering innovation and aspiration and who can make an integral contribution to Uxbridge High School.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff to share this commitment. Applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the DBS.
