Welcome to Wodensborough

Our “inclusive and welcoming” school “is improving across all key areas” and we are now full and over-subscribed at Key Stage 3 for the second consecutive year. Personal development, behaviour and welfare are now “Good” as are Leadership and Management. We are very much on the journey to becoming a “Good” school and we are immensely proud of our achievements to date. We invest in our staff and value their work and their contribution to raising standards.

We are proud to serve our local community and we are proud to be part of the Ormiston Academies Trust, a family of schools who are all committed to being the trust that makes the biggest difference.

We are seeking to appoint a teacher – either newly qualified or more experienced – who shares our passion and commitment to ensuring the very highest standards of provision for all pupils and who can join us on journey to excellence.

Due to rapidly increasing pupil numbers within the school, we need to expand our team. We are looking for an exceptional teacher of Science who is able to engage and inspire learners of all abilities. Experience in working across Key Stages 3 and 4 is essential. In addition to a passion for your subject, you will be able to demonstrate your belief that all children can achieve regardless of starting points and have a proven track record in improving outcomes in your subject area.

You will join a supportive, highly talented and committed team of Science specialists. You will also be part of a wider body of staff who are proud to work at Wodensborough and who share an unwavering commitment to changing lives for young people in our local community.
