Teacher of Chemistry

Required for January 2021

The school is seeking to appoint a well-qualified teacher of Chemistry to A level for January 2021

Chemistry is a popular subject at the school with approximately 150 students from our mixed sixth form currently studying Chemistry in Year 12 and 13. All of our boys in KS4 study Chemistry as part of their triple award AQA GCSE qualification and we teach a bespoke combined science course at KS3 in Years 7 and 8. The successful candidate will be rewarded by working in a department where all unnecessary workload is stripped away and the emphasis is placed firmly on teaching. All lessons take place in dedicated laboratories and are supported by a subject specific Chemistry technician. In short, we look to free our teachers so they can teach the very best lessons in their own style while working under the guidance of the Head of Chemistry and Director of Science.

The successful candidate will be an enthusiastic and passionate subject specialist capable both of delivering the curriculum and of working with a team of scientists involved in cutting edge student centred projects.  We have a dedicated research session on our timetable where students work with technology from CERN, work on genetic engineering with staff from the University of Kent and learn novel chemical techniques as part of the Chemistry Society. Students from the school often choose scientific research as the subject of their Extended Project Qualification, take part in Olympiads and even publish journal articles. This is an opportunity to work in a world class department with international recognition giving you the freedom to conduct genuine scientific research in an area of your own interest.

We welcome applications from experienced colleagues and NQTs as we have the scope to tailor the role to all experience levels.

Simon Langton Grammar School for Boys is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment.  Successful applicants will be required to undertake an Enhanced DBS
