Science Teacher

Teacher of Science 


September 2024  

Full time or Flexible Working Options available 


The Elizabethan Academy is a successful 11-19 stand-alone academy. Students and staff benefit from excellent facilities in our modern and purpose-built school. We are looking to recruit a Teacher of Science to share our commitment and determination to providing a learning environment that enables all young people to thrive.  

We have all-encompassing professional development opportunities with a structured path to enable career progression. This includes secondments at other schools in the East Midlands and staff coaching. We are also a “Brilliant School” and have recently been awarded the Wellbeing Award for Schools. 

This post could suit an ECT as well as a more experienced applicant.  

The successful candidate will join a hardworking, forward thinking, and supportive department. Whilst we are currently seeing a growing uptake in all three sciences at A-Level we also have strong links with the local Primary Schools which brings the opportunity to be involved in our Primary Science Events. We have a strong focus on STEM within the school and a passion across these areas would be an advantage. 

We are able to consider any science specialism.  

The Academy also has an off-site alternate provision centre at the beautiful Idle Valley Nature reserve which could provide the successful candidate with an exciting opportunity to be involved in something a little bit different. 

Our ideal candidate will: 

  • be passionate about teaching science and committed to achieving excellent results for their students.  

  • demonstrate high levels of ambition and optimism regarding what the academy and its students can achieve. 

  • have the resolve to make a real difference to the lives of pupils. 

  • be committed to the Academy’s ethos of high expectations with no excuses. 


The Academy is committed to equality of experience for all staff and students. We operate safer recruitment, robust child protection procedures and require evidence of DBS clearance for all employees. Checks will also be made with previous employers.
