Teacher of Science (Chemistry/Physics)

Beechwood School, Long Readings Lane, Slough, SL2 1QE

MPS/UPS (Fringe)
Required for April 2024

Beechwood School is looking for a qualified teacher who can teach Chemistry or Physics up to A Level to join our Science department in April/September 2024. The science department offers A-levels in the 3 sciences and BTEC in applied Science. This is therefore an opportunity to teach up to A-Levels.

This is an exciting time to join the department as we now offer a knowledge-rich curriculum that is sequenced to support all students to retain and use knowledge. The school supports all teachers to become quickly established through our instructional coaching programme for new staff. Our classrooms are disruption free, with staff on walk during lessons to ensure that there are no disruptions in lessons and the corridors. We are relentlessly focused on improving the quality of teaching and the expertise of all of our teachers. We have dedicated time in the school calendar for co-planning and subject specific CPD in subject teams, this has resulted in reduced workload as our teachers do not plan lessons individually. We take workload reduction seriously. Our students work hard at home to complement the brilliant teaching that takes place in lessons. We use online platforms to support spaced retrieval at home and teach our students about effective learning strategies.

If you are interested in finding out more then please read the welcome letter from our Headteacher and feel free to visit the school in advance of applying.

Beechwood School is committed to flexible working and we welcome applications from colleagues who may wish to be considered in a part-time/job share capacity.
