Oaklands School is a fully inclusive school with a wealth of opportunities for all learners to achieve their full potential. We are a school which serves the local community and promotes co-operation, responsibility and respect.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a high achieving school at GCSE and A level. We have an outstanding and talented Science Faculty with an established record of fantastic exam performance. Our science value added scores have been significantly above national average and regularly we are in the top 20% of all schools. Entries into separate sciences at GCSE are consistently high (Nearly 50%) and many of these students go on to take up Science at A level, which are consistently popular.

We welcome applications from candidates from a range of experience levels from graduates with a Biology background. Whatever the experience level, we are looking for candidates with strong qualifications who are confident in teaching Biology to A level. The school will be willing to develop and offer progression routes for positions of responsibility within the department and also for wider school opportunities.

At Oaklands we have highly committed and dedicated staff who work very hard so that our students can achieve their high expectations. If you think you can take our Science Faculty to greater heights, we look forward to hearing from you.

We are keen to hear from you if you:-

  • Are an excellent teacher

  • Are flexible and adaptable

  • Are ambitious, hard-working and a team player
