Job/Person Summary

ECTs welcome

We are seeking to appoint a committed, driven and inspiring Teacher of Science (all subject specialists welcomed) to join our academy in September 2024 preferably.  We provide exceptional opportunities to develop the unique interests and talents of our students, and to prepare them for life in modern Britain.  Strong relationships and first-class support across the community ensure that students are safe, happy and successful.

You will be operating from a purpose built and well equipped Science block, our team consists of a group of talented specialist teachers and a full-time technician.

We recognise that Science education does not stop when students leave the classroom door.  We have a number of strong partnerships with local businesses and other organisations who add to our offer outside of the classroom.  These include strong links with our partners at ExxonMobil, who run the local oil refinery.  Trips and visits are commonplace.  For example, recently a group of our Year 8 students became real-life engineers for the day and were successful in winning the Institution of Engineering and Technology’s Faraday Challenge.

New Forest Academy is a successful and popular 11-16 community school adjacent to the New Forest National Park and we are proud to serve the South Waterside community in Hampshire.

As a small school we are fortunate to be able to really get to know each and every student. Staff who work here see this a real benefit and you will join a school where tailored CPD and effective communication is firmly embedded. We are a 'good' school, with outstanding features. 

Our vision is to enable ambitious futures for all members of our academy community.  We strive to ensure that expert teaching of our exciting curriculum allows students from all backgrounds to fulfil their academic potential.  We achieve this by sequencing the most important and compelling knowledge backwards from ambitious curriculum aims, and adapting what we teach to our local context.  Our passionate team of subject experts deliver chosen content through research-based, best practice approaches.  We provide exceptional opportunities to develop the unique interests and talents of our students, and to prepare them for life in modern Britain.  Strong relationships and first-class support across the community ensure that students are safe, happy and successful.
If you are successful, you will join a school where all colleagues play their part and contribute to whole school improvement through our distributed leadership model. If you embody these values and have high expectations, you will be very successful working with us.
