At Stoke High School we have an exciting opportunity for an ambitious and inspirational teacher who wants to make a real difference and who is capable of leading the Science Faculty through its next stage of development.

We are looking for:

  • either an experienced Head of Science or someone with less experience but with bags of enthusiasm and a willingness to learn
  • an inspirational science teacher, who believes in high aspirations for all students
  • someone who is committed to student success with a proven track record of success
  • an individual who is highly organised and enthusiastic
  • a teacher who is passionate about innovative learning and teaching.

The science team is an experienced and committed team of individuals. There are 5 teachers and two science technicians. You will be supported in your role as subject lead by a second in charge and a lead teacher for STEM. Every teacher has their own classroom and we have a well-equipped prep room.

We are keen to give you the best possible training. If you're excited about taking on the NPQML or NPQSL or any other training that you're interested in, then we'll support you with this.

There will be opportunities in the future to apply to join our SLT as an Associate Assistant Principal to gain whole school leadership experience.

Our school is a really exciting and interesting place to be. We have a large number of very bright and able students and a higher than average percentage of EAL, SEN and PP students.

Staff and students are very positive and it's a vibrant and exciting place to work.

We are building a £20,000 gym that staff can use, and we have regular badminton tournaments, running groups and staff socials.

We are part of one of the largest trusts in the country and there are lots of opportunities to share ideas and collaborate.

We work closely with two local secondary schools and this allows the departments to share training and resources.
Sounds interesting?

Please contact Jo Tankard, Acting Head of Faculty, on (01473) 601252 for an informal chat and to arrange a visit to the Academy.

An application form can be downloaded from our website: www.stokehighoa.co.uk

Completed applications should be emailed to: recruitment@stokehigh.co.uk or posted to the Academy, Maidenhall Approach, Ipswich, Suffolk IP2 8PL.

CVs are not accepted.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. DBS checks or police vetting will be required for relevant posts.
