Teacher of Science
(Biology Specialism an Advantage)
Full-time, MPS

We are looking to appoint a teacher of Science to join our team of committed scientists. The Science Faculty at Knights Templar School is a thriving team of 13 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.  Science 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.  NQTs at Knights Templar will receive full support in their induction year and will benefit from our outstanding coaching and mentoring programme.  This starts in the Summer term with an expenses paid induction period. Knights Templar also offer an excellent range of CPD opportunities for staff.

The school is in the pretty market town of Baldock, situated 33 miles north of London, within 30-40 minutes of both Cambridge and London by road or train. 

In October 2012 Ofsted graded the school as “good” with Behaviour and Safety of Pupils being judged as “outstanding”.  They commented that “students have exemplary personal and social skills” and that they have “an excellent attitude to learning”. 

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

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

Closing date: 9am Monday, 22nd May 2017
