Head of Science
Required Easter 2021
Full Time, permanent, across the 11-19 campus; salary at L10.
We are looking for an ambitious and inspirational, experienced teacher to head up our Science department and in time maybe more.
This is a fantastic opportunity for an exceptional second in Science who is ready for promotion, or a current Head of Science looking to broaden their experience. There will be wider opportunities for leadership available across our Trust in the future.
We value our staff and believe in them. We offer you training and support to develop not just as a teacher but as a future senior leader so we would like the successful candidate to undertake an NPQ course. You will receive high quality coaching from our headteacher or executive headteacher and we offer the chance to work with a friendly, supportive and experienced team of colleagues across the whole Trust.
Do you want to join us? You will come to a school full of sparky, creative and intelligent students. You will find a capable and experienced team of adults that support children’s learning and who are very proud that OFSTED rates our pastoral care as a strength of our schools. We have one non-negotiable: you must be passionate about the care, happiness and learning of the children you’ll work with. It is also vitally important that you bring a sense of humour. If you have not got one, please do not apply.
Wigston Academies Trust is a Trust formed of two schools and a pre-school: Wigston Academy (11-16), Wigston College (16-19) and Tiger Tots led by one Headteacher and an Executive Headteacher based in the Leicestershire town of Wigston. OFSTED rates the behaviour of our children, as well as our leadership and management, as good not just at the Academy but also at the College and in our pre-school.
Come and have a look round and talk to us – we’d love to meet you and we are happy to organise a socially distanced visit.
Closing date for applications: 10am, Monday, 1st February 2021
