Required for September 2024 

Thomas Aquinas Catholic School & Sixth Form is seeking to appoint an outstanding Head of Science from September 2024.

We are seeking someone who has a desire to instil in our wonderful students a love of science and help form them as young people. We only want somebody driven by a sense of mission and vocation. As such, we will be flexible for the right person in terms of working arrangements, pay and responsibilities. Knowledgeable and talented leaders - determined to make a sustained impact - are encouraged to discuss additional incentives that are available for the right person.

The person appointed will build on solid foundations already in place and contribute to whole school policy as well as overseeing STEM opportunities across the Multi Academy (3-19). This is an excellent opportunity to work with great colleagues, grow professionally and, if desired, advance your own career towards senior leadership.  

St Thomas Aquinas is a large and thriving Catholic comprehensive school in the south of Birmingham. It is undoubtably a vibrant community where staff and students from all faiths live out the school mission. Examination results in summer 2022 and 2023 were excellent and in the top group of schools nationally. The Catholic Schools Inspectorate judged the school to be ‘Outstanding’ in all areas and the school has very recently been through a very successful Ofsted inspection. As a result, we are an oversubscribed school and becoming more and more popular with families.

This is a wonderful opportunity for the right candidate to build something special and make a huge contribution in a major Catholic comprehensive school.


Prospective candidates are encouraged to contact and informally visit the school.  


The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment.  An enhanced DBS check is required for all successful candidates.


Closing date for applications is 9am on Friday 17th May 2024.

Interviews will take place on Tuesday 21st May 2024.
