Teacher of Chemistry 

September 2020

Location: Hereford   Description: Full time, permanent

Hereford Cathedral School seeks to appoint a full-time Teacher of Chemistry from September 2020. 

Hereford Cathedral School seeks to appoint a full-time teacher of Chemistry from September 2020. Applicants must be able to teach GCSE and A Level Chemistry and other sciences up to GCSE. The post will suit a high-calibre graduate, either an NQT or more experienced teacher, with the enthusiasm, energy and commitment to really inspire their pupils.

The Chemistry Department teaches approximately a third of all Sixth Form students at AS Level and A Level. Invariably our GCSE results are excellent, with approximately 90% of all candidates achieving A*/A grades in the last five years.

In addition to academic teaching, the successful candidate will also be asked to contribute fully to the pastoral and extra-curricular life of the school. They will need to have first rate interpersonal skills, with the ability to work well and communicate effectively with pupils, colleagues and parents. In addition, energy, vision and high expectations are essential qualities for this position. An ability to teach another subject, although perhaps useful, is not essential.  

The School follows DfE recognised arrangements leading to NQT status and has considerable success in supporting new teachers in their Induction Year.

Hereford Cathedral School has a well-established and thriving extra-curricular programme, and the successful applicant will be expected to play an active part in this.
