- Required for September 2020
We are looking for a knowledgeable, reflective and experienced practitioner to teach Science at KS3 and Biology, Chemistry or Physics at KS4 and KS5.
Science is a popular subject in all Key Stages with approximately one third of students at Key Stage 4 studying three separate Sciences to GCSE level. All three Science subjects are popular at Key Stage 5 with a significant number of students opting to study Biology, Chemistry and/or Physics to AS and A2 level.
Our vision is simple; we create futures and that includes ensuring our staff have them too! At Heart of England we are clear in our approach to professional wellbeing, which is crucial at a time of ever-shifting challenge and educational requirement.
For our staff we believe in agency and the right level of autonomy for the stage you’re at. We believe that the same intellectual curiosity that lead you to want to study your subject at university and then teach it to others is what makes you best placed to make decisions about the way you teach your subject now.
We believe that when it comes to learning and teaching our motto, “No One Way … By Design” does not signify limitless variety. Our focus is on evidence based teaching and the selection of the best method at the right time. We all bring variety to our roles, however, excellent outcomes are forged through consistent application of what has been proven to work.
In the last few years each department has designed its own new curriculum for KS3 following the sequence of knowledge and skills they believe to be essential for students as they develop through the years. Last year we introduced a new behaviour policy with the motto ‘Our One Way…By Design’ showing that clear boundaries and consistency is the bedrock of a successful school. Another thing about us: we’re not in to quick fixes or superficial tweaks; we’re in it for sustainable excellence. Our current strategic plan outlines an initial 5 year journey, not a one year journey 5 times over.
Attached to this advert is a description which aims to give a flavour of what the experience of teaching at Heart of England would be like.

Heart of England School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all its staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This post requires an enhanced CRB check.
