The Basildon Academies

HEAD OF SCIENCE

Teacher Scale: M1 to UPS3 plus £10,000 ARA (Academy Responsibility Allowance).

We are looking for an exceptional existing or developing leader to join our academy. The successful candidate will have ambition and will work closely with our SLT to develop and realise this ambition.

We are an aspirational academy operating across two school sites.  The Lower Academy specialises in the teaching of our Key Stage 3 students, whilst the Upper Academy specialises in teaching Key Stage 4 and 5.   This post will be based at the Upper Academy.

The right candidate will be an outstanding science teacher, able to demonstrate impact in a leadership role or the potential to achieve this, and have an enthusiasm that will inspire science students to outstanding outcomes. 

In December 2015 both of our Academies were graded as ‘Good’ by Ofsted and our goal over the next 12 months is to achieve ‘Outstanding’. We are confident we can achieve this and are looking for colleagues who share the drive and passion necessary to ensure every student achieves their potential.

We are also dedicated to ensuring our staff fulfil their potential.  As a member of our team you will receive excellent bespoke CPD that will support you as an outstanding practitioner. We will also provide opportunities to engage in leadership programmes to support professional development.

If you can enthuse, engage, motivate and challenge students to make exceptional progress then please download and complete our application form and return it to our Academy Support Manager Lisa Church: lchurch@basildonacademies.org.uk

Closing Date: Friday 27th April 2018 at midday. 
Position Available: September 2018 (earlier start negotiable)

Tours of the Academies will be available for shortlisted candidates. 

The Basildon Academies are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects staff to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be subject to DBS and health checks.
