QEGSMAT are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic Teacher of Biology to join our passionate and high achieving team with the opportunity to teach A-Level (KS5) at Chellaston Academy. To start September 2024. 

At Chellaston Academy, our vision is to Inspire each other to realise our potential through Integrity, Care, and Excellence'. In September 2023 Chellaston Academy was rated as ‘GOOD’ by Ofsted. “The school’s ICE (integrity, care and excellence) values permeate the school’s work, and pupils also know that the high expectations that staff have help them to achieve academically and personally.” “The school has devised a curriculum that is both broad and ambitious, and there are high academic expectations of pupils.” In addition, leaders have engaged staff well when making large-scale changes to improve the school. Staff feel that leaders are considerate of their workload and well-being. They are proud to work at this school. 

Chellaston Academy is a proud member of QEGSMAT. The Trust’s values are for students to ‘Question, Explore; Give; and Succeed’. Our exceptional staff, strong leadership, motivated children, as well as excellent facilities, provide the successful formula for this. 

At QEGSMAT we believe and promote that exceptional workforce creates exceptional results; they transform lives and transform futures. We support every pupil to achieve their full potential and become a confident, resilient, and compassionate individual who can make a positive contribution to society.  

Members of staff who work at Chellaston Academy enjoy:

  • A happy and vibrant culture of integrity, Care and Excellence.
  • A positive and enjoyable climate where we are trauma informed and our 'kids do us proud'!
  • An inclusive, autonomous learning environment where you CAN make a difference.
  • An environment where the wellbeing of staff is a priority and staff are involved in decision making.
  • Purposeful and bespoke professional and personal development.
  • An environment where Chellaston are leaders in our sector providing exciting wider opportunities. 

Why work for us? 

  • At QEGSMAT, we value the hard work and dedication of our team members, and as such we believe that progression should be a simple process. That’s why we are proud to offer an Automatic Pay Review program, rather than the traditional annual pay and performance review, as part of our comprehensive benefits package.
  • Continual access to CPD opportunities. QEGSMAT works with a large number of organisations to develop staff to fulfil their aspirations and potential. We are committed to providing first-rate training and development to all our staff within this evolving Trust.
  • We are committed to promoting equality, challenging discrimination, and developing community cohesion. We welcome applications from all sections of the community.
  • All staff have access to our Employee Assistance Programme which provides confidential, independent and unbiased information and guidance 24/7. This can also include bespoke counselling sessions for staff if needed.
  • All roles are subject to nationally agreed terms and conditions of service.
  • With access to Teacher Pension Scheme employer contributions of 28.68% for Teachers.
  • Family-friendly policies.
  • Access to Flu Vaccines.
  • Opportunity to work flexibly.
