We are delighted to be recruiting for a dynamic and inspirational Teacher of Chemistry to join an exciting and well-resourced department at an all-boys senior school in central London.

What we’re looking for

The post represents an exciting opportunity for a teacher with the necessary vision and ambition to help the school offer a first-rate academic education for boys. As a Teacher of Chemistry at our school you will have the opportunity to build your experience of working with a team of specialists and to develop the teaching of Chemistry in interesting and innovative ways.

The post would suit a talented teacher looking to develop their careers and who would like the freedom and challenge of working in a newly-established school. Teaching staff at our school have experience of teaching in both the maintained and independent sectors and colleagues looking to move into independent education are warmly encouraged to apply. 

Job Description

There are currently around 270 boys between the ages of 11 and 17 on roll, spanning Year 7 to Year 12. The school’s size and reputation is growing rapidly and our new building opened only a short walk from the original building in Marylebone. We have also this year opened our new Sixth Form Centre.

The school was founded to offer a progressive education in the heart of London. The school’s focus on an all-round education means that high standards are expected of the boys in all areas of school life. The school provides the boys with a broad educational experience, which includes Philosophy and thinking Skills in the curriculum, to ensure that they are able to think critically and to problem solve but also to ensure they can be creative and collaborative in their approach, so that they develop a sense of social responsibility and respect for others.

Our location in the heart of London will open up exciting opportunities for teaching as the school has access to everything London has to offer in terms of arts and culture, science and technology and business and commerce; giving our pupils the best preparation for adult life in an ever-changing world.

The Science Department

The Science Department is made up of six specialists who, between them, have a breadth of experience teaching in and leading departments at some of the country’s top independent schools.

There are three Science Heads of Department (one of whom is also overall Head of Science), with three further subject specialists and two highly skilled technicians. The Science Department occupies the top floor of our Marylebone site, with five laboratories and two prep rooms. Further facilities for teaching science will open next year.

Boys in Years 7-9 have 4.5 hours of science per week. At GCSE boys have 6 hours per week. Boys are taught by subject specialists in our well-equipped labs, with a strong emphasis on practical work to support the academic challenge of the course. The science teachers draw on a wealth of experience at previous schools to provide the boys with an absolutely first-rate experience in the classroom.

The Department benefits from interactive boards in all labs, three sets of iPads, as well as a wealth of experimental kit with which the boys learn science in a hands-on and exciting way.
