Teacher of Science
Required 1st September 2024
We are seeking to appoint a talented, passionate and skilled Teacher of Science to join a successful and experienced department in our Church of England 11-18 comprehensive school.
Hutton is a single sex boys school from 11-16 which is oversubscribed in most year groups and has 704 students currently on roll. The school is co-educational from 16-18 with 149 students currently on roll. The school was judged ‘Good’ by Ofsted in May 2022 and ‘Outstanding’ by SIAMS in February 2018.
The Science Department is currently made up of 11 members of staff, including a Subject leader for Science and Chemistry and subject leaders of Biology and Physics and we are looking for an additional member to join our team. We are a well-resourced department, with 8 fully furnished science laboratories and 1 science classroom. We are supported by 2 technicians and a specialist Science teaching assistant. Our success can be credited to our hard-working students, supportive parents and committed and dedicated staff both within the Science Department and school as a whole.
Science is taught up to Key Stage 5 in Biology, Chemistry and Physics with teachers teaching within their subject specialisms in the majority of cases. We follow the AQA specification with a large percentage of students being given the opportunity to study Separate Science at Key Stage 4. Many of our students chose to continue their studies to A Level standard at Hutton and we are well equipped to meet the demands of required practical tasks.
We are looking for a colleague who can use their skills and knowledge to motivate, support and inspire our students to achieve their full potential. Candidates will ideally have the ability to teach either Biology or Chemistry up to Key Stage 5. This post would be suitable for Early Career Teachers.

The school is committed to the safeguarding and well-being of all young people and expects all employees to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be subject to Enhanced DBS clearance.
