To commence Autumn Term 2022

Science is a key subject within the Castle Donington Curriculum. The Science Department is currently housed in four specialist rooms with plans for expansion in 2023. Students study Science for three lessons a week at KS3 and experience a full extra-curricular programme of clubs and activities. Triple Science is offered as an option to all students at KS4 and is a very popular GCSE alongside the AQA Combined Science-Trilogy course. Science is a well-regarded department in the school, delivering to students in KS3 and KS4 in broad ability groups. The Science Team is made up of subject specialists in all three disciplines, however we would particularly welcome candidates who could offer Chemistry or Physics. We have recently appointed a new and experienced Head of Science who is excited to be able to take the department forward. We are also fortunate to have a highly qualified full time Science Technician in the team.

The successful candidate would need to be able to operate within a close, dynamic and forward-thinking team. The Science Department is committed to developing challenging, engaging and exciting learning experiences for our students. The team has a passion for Science and the successful candidate must share this enthusiasm. You will demonstrate a clear understanding of AQA GCSE courses, whilst contributing to maintaining and developing the existing KS3 curriculum.  You will be able to demonstrate impact in achieving further increases in attainment and progress for all students. 

All teachers at Castle Donington College are also Tutors. The pastoral care and monitoring of progress of students is an essential part of the teacher’s role.
