SCIENCE TEACHER VACANCY

For a September 2020 start due to the retirement of our Head of Science: We are looking for a skilled and enthusiastic science teacher for senior school aged pupils, at our specialist school for pupils with dyslexia and related difficulties. All our pupils take Science GCSEs and need to be taught in a creative and multisensory way. The rewards are huge as we see excellent progress and achievement in pupils who have struggled to learn in a mainstream setting. Class sizes are very small, usually 5 – 7, and behaviour is very good. You will need to be a warm, patient and innovative teacher, with a desire to understand the often complex needs of our pupils.

 

NQTs considered.

 

Salary: up to £40K depending on experience.

 

Hours of work: Starting in April 2020 or September 2020, the position is full time, working 5 days per week between the hours of 8:30am and 4:00pm during school term time, plus such additional hours as may be needed to enable you to carry out effectively your professional duties. The salary for the role is based on experience and qualifications.

 

Knowl Hill School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all pupils attending the school. As the duties of this post involve regular contact with children, any offer to the successful candidates will be conditional upon an Enhanced Disclosure being obtained via the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
