Sutton High School is seeking an engaging and passionate teacher to deliver Biology to highly motivated girls in Key Stages 3, 4 & 5.

They will contribute to providing an excellent education by teaching with expertise and enthusiasm, offering support to the learning of individual students and contributing to the school’s pastoral system.

Science is taught as a combined subject in Years 7 and 8, with Biology as a separate subject from Year 9 upwards.

The successful candidate should have the capability to teach up to A level. The ability to offer a second subject, such as Psychology, would be an advantage, but is not essential.
