To start in September 2024, we are seeking a Head of Science to lead the teaching of Science across Laxton Junior school.

Laxton Junior School

At Laxton Junior School, our children and their learning are the centre of all that we do. In a caring and supportive environment, they become exceptional, lifelong learners, who confidently embrace the wide-ranging opportunities that we offer and are able to face challenges with determination and resilience. We believe that all learning opportunities should be challenging, inspiring and engaging and, through our talented and passionate staff, we ensure this contributes to fantastic progress across and beyond the curriculum. As a non-selective school, the personalised learning programmes that we have in place ensure that all our children, from those with additional learning needs to those working beyond age-related expectations, receive the perfect balance of support and challenge, alongside a sense of fun and enjoyment that must accompany the school experience.

The Role

You should have a genuine passion for Science and STEAM education and an ability to inspire this in others. Embracing a growth mindset, you will actively pursue opportunities to enhance your teaching proficiency whilst fostering collaborative partnerships with colleagues across departments, eagerly exchanging ideas and driving innovation forward. If you’re excited by the prospect of nurturing young scientists and being part of a supportive, collaborative environment, we would love to hear from you.
