Required for September 2024 – To cover a maternity leave.  Experienced and Early Careers Teachers welcome to apply.

This is an excellent opportunity for a well-qualified, enthusiastic Chemistry Teacher to join a successful 11-18 girls’ grammar school in Reading to cover a maternity leave for one year. Graded ‘Outstanding’ in its recent OFSTED inspection in November 2022, Kendrick School is a centre of academic excellence with a track record of high performance and achievement.

Applicants need to be able to teach Chemistry throughout the school including A Level, and Science at KS3. The ability to teach a second Science subject at KS4 would be valuable, but not essential.

Kendrick School is a centre of academic excellence with a track record of high performance and achievement. There are large numbers of students who study Chemistry at A Level with many students going on to study Chemistry related subjects at university.

This position would suit a recently qualified teacher or more experienced teacher who is able to impart passion and enthusiasm for the subject to highly motivated, creative and engaging students.

Kendrick School has a very good track record of developing ECTs and the successful candidate would be joining a supportive and experienced department. Sponsorship is available but applicants would be expected to have knowledge of GCSE and A Level education system.

The recent Ofsted report, November 2022 stated:

“Pupils’ behaviour is exemplary both in lessons and around the school. They respect and exemplify the values within the school pledge. Pupils love being here. Attendance is high, pupils are punctual, and lessons are free from any low-level disruption”.

Kendrick School is a welcoming, inclusive and happy community.  Benefits include a free Employee Assistance Programme, car parking, a contributory pension scheme, training and development and use of the swimming pool and sporting facilities.

Further details and an application form can be downloaded from our website – https://www.kendrick.reading.sch.uk or obtained by emailing aemberson@kendrick.reading.sch.uk.

Closing date: 9.00am Monday 22nd April 2024
Interviews: Thursday 25th April 2024
