Stromness Academy

Teacher of Chemistry/Science and Mathematics

21 hours per week (0.6 FTE)
Temporary up to 28 October 2022

Stromness Academy is seeking an enthusiastic and skilled teacher to join our Science and Maths departments. We are looking for a motivated teacher, committed to collegiate working and to maximising opportunities for all pupils.

Stromness Academy is a six year secondary school on a well-appointed campus in Orkney, voted the best place in the UK to bring up children. Our catchment area covers the town of Stromness and the West Mainland, a dispersed population with over two thirds of our pupils being bussed into school. The small size of our school (approximately 350 on roll), and our classes, means we know our pupils well and are able to be flexible to meet their needs. We are committed to providing a positive and purposeful environment where all our pupils achieve, as set out in our newly created school vision and ambitious School Improvement Plan. This is an exciting opportunity for the right candidate to become part of a forward-looking school and a rich and vibrant community.

Further information about the school and our activities can be found on our website

You must be registered, or in the process of registering, with the General Teaching Council for Scotland.

This post is subject to membership of the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme in respect of regulated work with children.

Salary will be based on the Main Grade scale of the SNCT Salary Tables plus a Distant Islands Allowance. We offer a generous relocation package.

Closing Date: Wednesday 4 August 2021
