St James School - Teacher of Science

St James is looking to appoint an excellent Teacher of Science to join our Science Department from September 2019.  The successful candidate will be passionate about their subject and an excellent classroom practitioner who delivers innovative, engaging and challenging lessons that ensure all students achieve their best.

We are an 11-16 mixed comprehensive school of 900 students situated in the East of Exeter on a relatively new, purpose-built site which offers excellent facilities for all our departments.  We are an innovative and aspirational school that is driven by the highest of expectations in all that we do. We offer a rich and personalised learning environment for all of our students and work hard together to ensure everyone succeeds on a pastoral, extracurricular and academic basis.  Ofsted judged us to be a strong Good in our inspection in January 2018, but acknowledged that we were on a clear trajectory to achieve Outstanding in the near future.

We want to be the best; we want to offer the best, we want our students to achieve their best.  If you share our passion, vision and drive and are prepared to go that extra mile to support our students, then we would welcome your application.

 Our staff are incredibly committed and passionate about all that they do and are rewarded with bespoke CPD provision, in-house career progression opportunities, regular staff wellbeing events and are actively encouraged and supported to partake in nationally recognised qualifications like the NPQs.  As a school we prioritise our staff’s wellbeing, as illustrated in the Why Work at St James sheet in our application pack.

We would welcome applications from NQTs and RQTs.  We provide a personalised and comprehensive programme of support to our NQTs which progresses into year two to ensure RQTs continue to receive guidance and coaching.
