Assistant Subject Leader: Science

A fabulous opportunity is awaiting you; the chance to support the design and shape of
innovative and creative pedagogical practice in a new all-through academy as our Assistant
Subject Leader in Science.

King’s Academy Binfield (KAB) and King’s Academy Oakwood (KAO) are looking to appoint
a highly motivated, dynamic and innovative Assistant Subject Leader: Science with an
excellent track record, to play an intrinsic role in our new all-through academy in Bracknell
Forest.

KAB opened in a superb building in September 2018 with 120 Year 7 students. In September
2019 a further 150 Year 7 students, along with year R and nursery students joined the
academy. Also in September 2019, KAO, a brand new 1 FE primary school a mile away,
opened with Year R and a mixed (for this year only) Year 1/2. KAB and KAO will continue to
grow year on year to a roll of over 1800 students, aged 3-18. Both academies are run
cohesively sharing the same leadership, staff, values, curriculum, opportunities and
expectations of excellence.

We are looking to recruit a passionate and knowledgeable assistant subject lead to join our
science department (any specialism). The successful candidate will initially oversee our
growing Key Stage 3 with scope for overseeing other areas of the department as we and the
school grow.

The principle focus of the Science curriculum at King’s Academy Binfield is to deepen and
develop students' understanding, building upon what they have learned in KS2, giving a
strong grasp of the fundamentals across biology, chemistry and physics. We provide
students with the tools and understanding that not only prepare them for the next level of
their education, but also for evaluating and making sense of the changing world around
them.

We are looking for someone who aligns with our ethos and can help our growing department
continue to grow from strength to strength giving the successful candidate the opportunity to
grow and develop professionally.

Applicants should be excellent classroom teachers and have the ability to motivate, inspire
and lead staff and students to excel. The successful candidate will show great leadership
potential, will be a team player, will get stuck in and involve themselves in the wider aspects
of academy life. A genuine commitment to our ‘whatever it takes’ ethos is essential to enable
every young person at KAB and KAO to thrive.

As a rapidly growing school, this is a rare and exciting opportunity for a skilful leader who
can bring creativity, innovation and dynamism across the academies. Potential is just as
important as experience.

KAB and KAO are part of the King’s Group Academies MAT, led by a team of former and
current Ofsted ‘outstanding’ head teachers and Her Majesty’s Inspectors (HMI).
King’s Education separately operates British schools abroad, educating over 4,000 students
in countries such as Spain, Latvia and Panama, offering exciting opportunities for genuine
international collaboration. Please note link to King’s Group Academies Vision and Mission -https://kingsacademies.uk/aboutus/vision-and-mission/

Unfortunately at this time, visits to us are not possible, however we would be delighted to
arrange an informal chat, so please do contact in the first instance, Amber Walker, PA to the
Executive Principal at amber.walker@kingsacademies.uk

King’s Academy Binfield and King’s Academy Oakwood are committed to safeguarding and
promoting the welfare of children and young students and expects all staff to share this
commitment. The successful applicant will need to undertake an Enhanced DBS check.
