We are looking for an exceptional Science teacher to join our team. If you are an outstanding practitioner looking for an opportunity to make your mark in transforming a school with huge capacity for improvement, this is the perfect opportunity for you.
Having come under new leadership in 2016, The Totteridge Academy has made rapid progress which is evidenced in the dramatic transition from 40% to 69% of students gaining good passes in English and Maths, and an improved Progress 8 score of +0.39, compared to -0.45 in 2016.
One of our core values at The Totteridge Academy is that our teachers are given the autonomy to teach their subject in the way they truly believe, and each department drives their own Teaching and Learning philosophies by designing their own handbook. An ideal candidate for this post is someone with the vision and expertise to guide the science team in developing this critical collaborative document, to which all science teachers are held to account.
At The Totteridge Academy, our fantastic staff subscribe to the principle of ‘kaizen’ (continuous improvement), wherein each and every member of our team strives to be better every day. This is achieved through an open culture of peer-observation and the constant sharing of outstanding practice.
We are committed to developing our people and, as part of the largest group of academies and independent schools, we offer unrivalled professional development and career progression through United Learning, our Multi Academy Trust.
This truly is an exciting time to join The Totteridge Academy; if you share our high expectations and care deeply about transforming the life chances of children, then we look forward to receiving your application.
