Required for September 2019, an enthusiastic, creative and highly-skilled biology specialist to teach across the age and ability range at KS3 and 4 within a high-achieving team. The Science Department at Linton Village College is successful and highly regarded locally and nationally. Results sit within the first quintile nationally for value added, and GCSE pass rates have been consistently very high for many years. At Linton, we are committed to educating the whole child and therefore offer a wide range of enrichment opportunities and STEM activities.

While we are happy to consider candidates at all stages of their career, we are keen to recruit a capable and motivated teacher of science to contribute to the development of the biology curriculum and extra-curricular provision. A Teaching and Learning Responsibility and/or Recruitment and Retention payment may be available for the right candidate. The successful candidate will teach biology at Key Stage 4 and all sciences at Key Stage 3.

Linton Village College offers an excellent standard of education. Ensuring a high quality learning experience for all of our students on a daily basis is our core priority. This is underpinned by a school community in which strong relationships, effective pastoral care and enrichment opportunities are of paramount importance. We have very high expectations and provide a nurturing, friendly and supportive environment in which everyone can thrive and achieve.

As the lead school in a large and vibrant Teaching School Alliance (CASSA) and within a cross-phase Multi-Academy Trust (CHET), it is an exciting time to join us. We support colleagues’ professional development in national programmes as well as through high quality CASSA training. We also enjoy effective links with primary partner schools, sixth form colleges and the Faculty of Education at the University of Cambridge.

The College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. Appointments will be subject to DBS clearance and satisfactory references.
