Current Vacancies

Director of Science

Full time
Contract Term:
MPS/UPS Plus TLR 1/5 £11,405
Start Date:
Easter 2024
Closing Date:

Director of Science (suitable for MPS/UPS)

‘Leaders have created a culture in which the school’s values of kindness, decency and a strong work ethic are lived out by pupils and staff’ Ofsted July 2023

We are looking to appoint an exceptional leader as Director of Science. The successful candidate will themselves be an excellent teacher with strong pedagogical and subject pedagogical knowledge. Your specialism is not important but rather your talent to lead and manage a motivated and diverse team with varying degrees of experience in order to further raise levels of attainment and progress.  The successful candidate will have a genuine opportunity to innovate and design the systems required to attain the high standards expected of the role

The most decisive factor in our decision making will be your passion, commitment and vision for this important area of school. You must demonstrate an ability to inspire children and young people, be creative, dynamic, enthusiastic, hardworking and resilient. Our school is high-performing and we are ambitious for every single one of our pupils.  

Pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), achieve well across the curriculum and exceptionally in subjects such as English and mathematics.’ Ofsted July 2023

This opportunity is open to professionals with the ability to drive forward the Science curriculum and those with a proven track record of improving outcomes within a Science Department.  We seek only to appoint those of the highest calibre. In return, you will join a happy and harmonious school community that prides itself on valuing its best asset, the staff. 

‘Leaders at all levels act with integrity. They place pupils’ interests at the centre of their decision-making. Leaders consider the impact of their decisions on staff well-being. Staff recognise leaders’ consideration and feel valued in their roles.’ Ofsted July 2023

We offer an excellent professional development programme in-house and support colleagues to attend external training linked to their role and career ambitions. Our approach to performance management has been transformed and is now based upon self-propelled learning linked to one school priority as opposed to a series of individual targets. Whilst at our school, colleagues are expected to have a strong work ethic, they are treated as individuals and with kindness and decency. The work-life balance of colleagues is taken very seriously by the Headteacher and both staff turn-over and absence are very low. This is a great place to work!

We do not take recruitment lightly.  Choosing a teacher to be responsible for so many student outcomes is taken very seriously and not ever done for the sake of filling a gap. It is really equally important to us that the right candidate chooses our school because they believe in what we are trying to achieve and the way in which we do this.  The job is never done and every year we have different students arriving all with their unique personalities, aspirations and desires. We celebrate this and do whatever it takes to make sure they have the best possible memories of school but also the right academic profile.

The school is deceptively accessible within the Yorkshire and Humberside area, with colleagues travelling from as far afield as Grimsby, Leeds, York and Wakefield. The school is set in the village of Auckley and benefits from extensive grounds. New College Doncaster is situated next door where many of our young people progress to post-16. 

We do encourage those interested in joining us to visit the school to get a feel for our culture and ethos. Application forms can be found on the TES vacancies section and the school website together with further information. Please contact HR Manager, Paula Kynman, 01302 770579,
