Teacher of Science (Physics or Chemistry) 

Carre’s Grammar School is looking to appoint a Teacher of Science.   This is a fantastic opportunity to make a difference in one of the school’s key departments.  The vacancy has arisen due to the retirement of a member of staff and the post would be ideal for an NQT, or someone seeking a new challenge. A part time role could be considered but you must be able to teach Physics or Chemistry to A Level.

We have 800 students on roll; boys only 11-16, and co-educational in the Sixth Form.  The school has long been synonymous with excellence and the school’s reputation for providing a first rate all-round education for local students has been strengthened even further over recent years.  Our academic results speak for themselves while our achievements in Sport, Music and other activities are outstanding. We have been recognised as a Good school with Outstanding features by Ofsted and were delighted with this outcome, which recognised the strengths of the school and supported our own perceived areas for improvement.  The Science department is a real asset in the school, with a large uptake in an expanding Sixth Form.

We have been recognised as one of the top schools in the country based on our performance in the last few academic years, and students have regularly accepted offers for Oxbridge and the top Universities.  The friendly, cheerful atmosphere of the school helps our students enjoy learning and, as they grow into young men and women, we enable them to take increasing responsibility for themselves and for others around them.

To the right candidate, this post will be an extremely rewarding experience, an opportunity to really make a difference.  

Further information and application form is available on our website at: http://www.carres.uk/site/default.asp .

If you wish to apply, please submit the application form and a letter of no more than 2 sides of A4 in which you should cover:  

  • Your experience of teaching to date;
  • Your educational philosophy;
  • Why this particular post would suit you;
  • Relevant interests that would enrich students at Carre’s.  

Completed applications should be emailed to the Head’s PA at: Julie.body@carres.uk 

Closing Date - 12:00 midday on Monday 1 June 2020. 

Interviews will take place during the week commencing Monday 1 June, but we reserve the right to interview suitable candidates before the closing date if appropriate. 

When interviews do take place the school will contact you directly.

When interviews are taking place schools will follow all Government and Public Health/NHS Guidelines.
