SJH is an excellent school that has improved immensely in recent years and, as a result, has been oversubscribed for the last five years. Our ethos is for our students to strive ‘to greater heights’. This ethos is built on a core set of values, which underpins everything that we do. These are Ambition, Endeavour and Respect.

We offer a state-of-the-art College facility which is equipped with an entirely new IT infrastructure, including touch screens and visualisers in every classroom. We pride ourselves on managing the workload of staff by offering a disruption free learning environment, only three assessment points throughout the year, no lesson observations, no lesson planners and no book marking. We have weekly CPD sessions for all teaching staff, including whole school staff sessions and sessions directed by Curriculum Leaders to work with their teams. We prioritise and work hard on the things that are important and have impact.

The design of our curriculum is clear and is based on the acquisitions of knowledge and skills through effective planning and sequencing. The implementation of our curriculum is simple: effective deliver, effective teaching and effective assessment. We offer the full curriculum entitlement to our students, featuring a three-year Key Stage3/two-year Key Stage 4. We have a comprehensive offer of qualifications, both at Key Stage 4 and 5 and we give teachers the opportunity to teach across all phases.

We are looking to appoint a highly motivated and enthusiastic science teacher to teach across all key stages. We have a well-established team of teachers and a very well-resourced department with a dedicated technician team to support our Biology, Chemistry and Physics subject specialisms. The department has specialist science laboratories and a fantastic, dedicated team. We have planned and resourced lessons with a lesson structure that supports students to learn effectively.

We welcome applications from highly motivated and experienced teachers with the vision and ability to commit towards the department. If you would like to find out more about the College, please visit our website. We would welcome any potential candidates to come and visit the College during the day to meet the team and experience the learning environment for themselves.
