Job Description

One of our top performing client schools in West London is looking to appoint a Biology teacher to start ASAP. The right candidate will be expected to support the Catholic Ethos of the school.

At KS3, 93% of the students are making 5 levels of progress. At KS4, students have a choice between three pathways. The most popular one being GCSE Separate Science following the OCR specification and providing students with three separate GCSE grades. The school also offers a GCSE core and additional science or an entry level.

Here are the results obtained by students in that school for triple science:
Biology A* - C = 100% (National Average = 93%) / A* - A =90% (National Average = 6%), Chemistry A* - C = 100% (National Average = 93%) /A* - A = 62% (National Average = 48%), Physics A* - C = 100% (National Average = 93%) / A* - A = 60% (National Average = 46%)

The school is well served by numerous bus services which will take you to the main tube stations (central line/ district line) in less than 15 minutes. It has recently been refurbished as it was part of the B.S.F project so it will provide you with a world class learning environment for both staff and students.

The successful candidate will:

* Have a proven track record and clear experience in raising achievement with pupils of all abilities
* Have a passion for their subject
* Have the ability to motivate and inspire pupils to their full potential
* Have an unrelenting focus on the learning experience of all their classes

* You must have the legal right to work in the UK
* You must hold QTS or a UK recognised equivalent teaching qualification
* This position is subject to an Enhanced DBS Disclosure, Overseas Police Clearances (if applicable) and professional reference checks
