Portland Place School - Teacher of Science
Portland Place School
In line with mainstream sector but on the Alpha Plus Scale
Practical work and experimentation is at the heart of our Science department at Portland Place. We encourage students to be scientists and do science, rather than just read and write about it. The department believes this is the best way to learn.
Portland Place School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all our children. All staff are trained in child protection. We ensure all candidates are properly police checked on appointment. The school will only accept fully completed application forms with three references and CVs attached.
Join Portland Place – a haven of creativity
Portland Place School is a leading independent co-educational day school for children aged 10-16, located directly in the heart of the City of Westminster. It was founded with a particular purpose in mind: to be an alternative to the intense, large, examination focused independent day schools of which there are many in London.
Part of the Alpha Plus family of schools, Portland Place offers rigorous and tailored career professional development to meet the needs of staff progression, a diverse and experienced group of teachers who share their pedagogical practice and first class teaching & learning and pastoral care for students. Portland Place School is undergoing a transformation in our approach to learning. Our aim is to provide a real-life education where children are adaptable, empathic and are prepared for the 21st Century careers.
