Longfield Academy has a great opportunity to appoint a talented and inspiring Teacher of Science who will join us from April 2024, strengthening our already successful department even further.

You will join an established department with a friendly, dedicated team who achieve excellent results.

The department is forward thinking in terms of teaching and learning and curriculum design and is keen to ensure that the students not only gain knowledge and results but also gain cultural capital through workshops, trips, after school clubs and curriculum design.
