As we continue to grow, and open our Trust-wide sixth form next year, Turner Schools is looking to recruit a research-engaged, dedicated Teacher of Science to help us ensure that our knowledge-led curriculum is effectively delivered to our ambitious, confident and successful pupils. 

As a faculty we are committed to supporting our pupils in becoming confident in their own ability, with a sense of purpose and a vision for their futures. We want all of our pupils to be successful, achieving qualifications that prepare them to succeed in their ambitions so that the Academy is a place where all children thrive and knowledge matters. We have high expectations of our pupils at the Academy; our behaviour policy assures the highest expectations of behaviour in and out of lessons, creating a calm and purposeful learning environment.  This role could be suitable for an ECT who would like to develop in the role, and we are able to offer an exceptional level of support.

For the right candidate who is an inspirational and experienced Science Teacher there could be an opportunity to take on an appropriate responsibility within the department. 

We need an inspirational Science Teacher who is highly motivated and dedicated.  The right candidate would have a passion for powerful education and research.   They will have an enthusiasm and passion for science education and must be able to translate that to the classroom.  The Science Team at Folkestone Academy are used to working collaboratively and the ability to support this approach is an important part of this role, along with working as part of the wider Trust Science department.  

The Turner Schools community strongly believes that its purpose is to serve the young people of the local coastal community with a powerful education. Come and join us to be a part of our journey.

The ideal candidate will…

  • be dedicated to improving pupils progress and raising attainment
  • possess the drive and determination to assist students in breaking down barriers inside and outside of education
  • value our respectful environment, ensuring that pupils and colleagues alike respect and support each other to ensure a calm and purposeful site
  • believe that a knowledge and research-led curriculum is the necessary catalyst, with the ability and determination to be part of the Academy’s community to support ambitious, confident and successful students

In return, Turner Schools can offer... 

  • a strong ethos and culture that promotes the belief that all pupils can achieve
  • calm and purposeful learning environments, with high pupil behaviour expectations
  • a warm and welcoming team of teachers and associate staff
  • manageable workload through sensible and efficient policies
  • personalised coaching and CPD programmes alongside an investment in your career and development through financing Masters qualifications, training courses and conferences as requested
  • a Trust which takes student and faculty welfare seriously
  • Private healthcare from Benenden Health medical, including a 24/7 prescription GP service, counselling, access to the BUPA hospital network and physiotherapy.  
  • a genuine opportunity to make a difference by being part of the exciting Trust vision.
