About Us

Required from Easter 2024

There is a vacancy for a committed and dynamic Subject Leader for Science to lead the Science Curriculum at Francis Barber PRU in Wandsworth. You will be co-ordinating the GCSE Biology and KS3 Science delivery across both sites of the PRU to students. In addition you will also hold the role of keyworker to a small group of students and will be responsible for monitoring their progress and well-being.

Francis Barber works with groups of secondary aged pupils who have found education challenging in mainstream schools or who have moved into the borough and are awaiting a school place. 

This post is based across both sites of the Francis Barber PRU in central Wandsworth and in Tooting. 

We are a very good PRU and have very high expectations for our pupils. There is a friendly and welcoming ethos and a variety of activities both during the day and after school. These, along with good keyworking, help young people make changes which enable them to be successful in their education. 

Many of the pupils have faced challenges in mainstream schools. Some continue to be challenging in the PRU, but there is a strong staff team helping the young people to manage their behaviour within a supportive and caring school-like environment.

Staff at Francis Barber are committed to creating a reflective and considerate community where pupils can learn in a safe and secure environment. We value the individual strengths which pupils and staff can equally contribute to the development of positive and co-operative relationships.  Within the school there is a strong, diverse staff team including mentors, keyworkers and clinical CAMHS practitioners and a social worker, who help our young people to manage their behaviour and emotions.

Francis Barber is a great place to work with a friendly staff team and fantastic transport links and shops and banks nearby.  The school is very mindful of supporting staff wellbeing and there are many opportunities for CPD, mentoring and coaching. Other benefits include; access to Cyclescheme, a contribution towards the cost of eye care, season ticket loans and access to our Employee Assistance Programme.

If you have the necessary experience, qualifications and passion to make a difference to the lives of youngsters, then we will be delighted to hear from you.
