Required from 1 September 2021

Due to the promotion of the current post-holder to a Head of Science position, we have a vacancy for a highly motivated and reflective teacher to carry out a key leadership role in supporting the Curriculum Leader: Science, and help to improve the quality of teaching in this rapidly improving school and expanding sixth form. Over the last three years we have assembled an excellent group of senior leaders and teachers who are having a significant impact on the quality of teaching and student outcomes. With an aspirational culture, and a commitment to evidence informed teaching, we want to achieve more. We received a very positive Ofsted inspection in May 2018 and our A Level progress figures that year were the best in County Durham. We have made significant improvements to our curriculum, teaching, and professional development programme and we are committed to reducing teacher workload.

Framwellgate School Durham is an 11-18 non-selective secondary school and Single Academy Trust. The school roll has increased by 35% in three years and in September 2021 we will have more than 1300 students on roll.

The successful candidate will possess subject expertise alongside energy and enthusiasm. They will believe that every young person deserves the very best education. A commitment to raising achievement, and a willingness to learn, train and develop as a teacher are all essential. We can offer you an environment where student behaviour is excellent, prior attainment levels are amongst the highest in the North-East, and our students and staff are a pleasure to work with. With over 20 new teachers, including a number of NQTs appointed over the last three years, we have quickly become a vibrant and exciting school in which to develop your career.

This post would suit someone wishing to take their first steps into subject leadership. Ideally, we would prefer applications from those with Chemistry or Biology specialisms
