Science Technician

We are seeking to appoint a Science Technician to start as soon as possible to join a successful and expanding science department. Our current science technician has been with us since the school began in 2013 with year 7. However, with the ever-increasing size of the science department she now requires the support of an additional member of staff. The role does not require previous experience of being a science technician as we can provide training if necessary, but it will require you to be a positive, flexible and responsible member of staff who is capable of working well as part of a team.


What you can do is always more important to us than what you have done, so applications are welcome from anyone with a passion for learning and a genuine commitment to bringing out the best in everyone.


Wye School is a free school with a comprehensive intake, across the whole ability range.  It opened in September 2013 and this year for the first time we have the full age range of students in years

7-13.  We are three form entry, with a PAN of 90, and are over-subscribed for all year groups.
