Kings Monkton is a successful co-educational independent school in the heart of Cardiff for children from 3-18 years old. Our vision is to give our children the future they deserve and pride ourselves on our inclusive, friendly and high achieving ethos. We offer our children small classes of 18, a caring and supportive environment, and excellent learning and teaching opportunities.
We are currently looking for an innovative and outstanding Science teacher to
teach KS3 Science, GCSE and the ability to offer A Level in either Biology, Chemistry or Physics would be an advantage. The ability and experience of delivering BTEC Science would also be desirable. The post has arisen due to the expansion of our school and the retirement of a part time teacher. Our Science Faculty is incredibly successful, with excellent results and extremely high standards throughout the school. We offer both Double and Triple Science with early entry for some pupils in Year 10, and BTEC science for a very small number of pupils. Our pupils are very focused and many are looking for a career in the sciences or engineering. As such, the successful candidate must be an outstanding teacher with a passion for their subject and the ability to get the very best out of our children. You will join a team that includes a full time biologist; chemistry teacher and Physics teacher as well as a dedicated Science Technician.
The interview will be based on a practical experiment; a lesson observation and a formal panel and pupil panel interview. As such, we would welcome interested candidates to visit our school and to meet with me and the staff. Please contact me if you would like to take up this offer.
Interviews will take place on Friday 18th October and we welcome potential candidates to visit our school on Friday 11th October from 08.30. Closing date for applications is Monday 14th October at 09.00.
There will be an opportunity to work with pupils throughout the school and a commitment to after school activities and events is essential.
As we are based in the heart of the City of Cardiff we have excellent access to all the local venues and make full use of this opportunity. If you would like to play your part in creating outstanding provision for our pupils, we would very much like to hear from you.
Kings Monkton Independent School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, and applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Criminal Records Bureau.
