About the role




Teachers Pay Scale

Start date:  September 2020 (July for NQTs)

We are seeking an enthusiastic and dynamic teacher to join our high achieving and experienced Science team.  We offer a comprehensive induction and development programme for all new staff, and we are always keen to support and work with NQTs. Roundwood Park prides itself in identifying talent and developing its staff.

We are particularly interested to recruit a Chemist, but we will always prefer the right teaching skills and attributes over the specialism.  The Sciences are extremely popular and well-subscribed at Roundwood Park, and we have students aspiring to the very highest grades and the best university courses.  However, NQTs would begin with teaching at KS3 & 4.

Roundwood Park is a forward looking and ambitious 11-18 co-educational comprehensive school with 1265 students on roll and enjoys a very good local reputation. We offer a comprehensive induction programme for all new staff. As a school graded ‘Outstanding’ by OFSTED, we were one of the first schools in the county to convert to Academy status in 2011. Roundwood Park is a school with a strong reputation as an innovative and exciting place in which to learn and to teach.  It is a place where traditional values of smart appearance, excellent behaviour and acting with integrity mingle with modern learning and high academic standards. Additional information about the school can be found on our website
