The successful candidates will be outstanding classroom teachers in their career to date and will have a proven track record of successful ‘A’ level teaching, or the unquestionable ability to demonstrate this.

As well as demonstrating excellent teaching skills, the successful candidates will lead their subject specialism through all Key Stages. They will innovate, inspire and engage students and staff in their subject, and will work across both the Main Campus and the Nexus Campus to achieve this. The successful candidate will have a key role in the extensive co curricular programme on offer to students both at the Main Campus and at CSMS on the Nexus Campus as well as ensuring the success of our Post 16 students.

Science is a high achieving and dynamic faculty.  Results are outstanding and students make excellent progress Recent examination results at GCSE show 100% pass rates in both Additional and Core Science, with our Triple groups securing 100% A*-C. We are consistently above National average; with 2017 results being nearly 10% above in Core Science. Due to our continued drive for high attainment our students also achieve a significant number of A-A* grades; recent results saw 116 A-A* grades achieved. At A level, we offer Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Applied Science and Psychology. In 2017 we had 100% pass rate, and of this 65% were A*-B grades. 60% of our Science A level subjects achieved Alps 1 or 2, which is the highest performing A level indicator that can be achieved.  The successful candidates will play a key role in ensuring that the A level results remain amongst the best in the country.

Camborne Science & International Academy is a friendly, dynamic and innovative school in the heart of beautiful West Cornwall, which affords a high quality of life. Results in both 2016 and 2017 place us amongst the top few schools of the school league table and in 2016 CSIA was awarded ‘Best state school in Cornwall’ by the Real Schools Guide.

Our school has developed exceptional International Science and Mathematics links with top schools in Japan, Singapore, Thailand, China and South Korea. Recent collaboration has involved joint research projects, International Science and Mathematics fairs and competitions, as well as many significant student/staff visits and exchanges. The successful appointees will be encouraged to participate in this amazing and unique programme.

The successful candidates will be given full support in their career development as we believe that development of staff is a key aspect in raising standards for our students. As these posts are on the leadership pay spine, there will be an expectation that the candidates will assume a whole school or faculty role with a focus on teaching and learning or pedagogy.
