Teacher of Chemistry
Maternity cover, Full-time/Part-time

We are looking to appoint a teacher of Chemistry to join our team of committed scientists.  This opening would be to provide cover for a member of the team who will be on maternity leave from 4th June to approximately October half term.

The Science Faculty at Knights Templar School is a thriving team of 11 teachers, well supported by 5 Science Technicians and 2 departmental LSA’s.  Science at KTS has recently undergone some exciting changes in structure and staffing, along with moving into our state of the art Science Centre in Autumn 2016.  Chemistry is a popular subject area with students and is promoted extensively by all staff, both within the curriculum and by extra-curricular activities. 

The successful applicant will be able to deliver high quality teaching and learning and have a clear focus on the achievement of young people.    The post would be an excellent opportunity for either an NQT or an experienced teacher and a desire to teach at A level would be welcomed.  NQTs at Knights Templar will receive full support in their induction year and will benefit from our outstanding coaching and mentoring programme.  Knights Templar also offer an excellent range of CPD opportunities for staff.

In September 2017, Ofsted graded the school as “good” and they commented that ‘You have high expectations for pupils, which permeate throughout the school and which have a positive impact on the progress pupils make from their different starting points.’

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

Closing date:      9am, Friday, 23rd March 2018
Interview date:     to be confirmed

Application packs are available to download from the school website.  Completed application forms, along with a covering letter (no more than two sides on skills and strengths relating to the post) to be returned by email to
