Isca Academy

Teacher of Science

Permanent, Full-Time, starting September 2020 (or sooner if possible)

 Do you have a relentless drive to achieve outstanding progress and attainment with children regardless of their background and prior learning?

We are seeking to appoint a highly motivated, capable and innovative teacher, with a proven commitment to inclusive and inspiring teaching where each and every child can succeed. You will be an enthusiastic specialist able to teach Science across KS3 and KS4. The post represents an exciting opportunity to be part of a vibrant and ambitious Academy working within the Ted Wragg Multi-Academy Trust.

Our school is located on a campus with purpose-built accommodation, offering spacious and excellent teaching and learning facilities. We currently have a roll of 920 students, growing to full capacity in 2021. Isca Academy prides itself on providing high quality comprehensive education. Our students have a broad range of abilities and aspirations on entry, from able, gifted and talented to students needing more support with literacy and social skills. Our focus remains on every student in our school exceeding expectations, whatever their starting point. Beyond academic credentials, we firmly believe in the value of a more rounded education which promotes creativity, self-belief and confidence, and as such, offer an exceptional extra-curricular and outdoor education programme.

The Science Department offers a challenging shared curriculum for year 7 and 8. Teachers can spend less time planning and resourcing lessons and more time scaffolding the learning materials provided to help meet the needs of their students to improve progress. We are moving towards a shared curriculum for years 9 – 11 also, and we will work together across our collaborative and supportive team of enthusiastic specialists to provide the very best lessons for our students.  As the Academy expands, the department is looking for an individual who can contribute to our vision, who combines excellent teaching and high expectations with energy and innovation, and who can offer both inspirational classroom experiences and extra-curricular opportunities for our students within the field of Science.

The Ted Wragg Multi Academy Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All applicants will be subject to a full Disclosure and Barring Service check before appointment is confirmed.
