The role

The Science Faculty at BIS is a rich and rewarding environment to work for creative, inspiring teachers who are ambitious for their students.

The team consists of forward-thinking, collaborative, and highly motivated teachers who work together to deliver high quality learning experiences that develop students’ skills in scientific enquiry while deepening their acquisition of knowledge.

In Years 7-8, students learn through a rich inquiry-based curriculum based on the Exploring Science International scheme of work and enhanced with an investigation-skills focus that has been developed in-house. In Years 9-11, students take the Cambridge IGCSEs; either the Coordinated Science course or all three sciences (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) as separate courses.

In Years 12-13, students choose either one or two subjects at Standard or Higher Level in the IBDP. Many elect to take two science subjects. Subjects we offer include Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Environmental Systems and Societies. We also offer a variety of science extra-curricular activities to enhance the opportunities for our students.


Our teachers

  • Deliver outstanding teaching and learning so that every student is challenged, makes progress, and thrives in a safe, inclusive, and stimulating learning environment.
  • Commit to knowing students well, ensuring that learning is personalised so students can confidently take their own next step in their learning journey.
  • Continually look for opportunities for innovation, trying new strategies in the classroom, contributing to a culture of experimentation and risk-taking.
  • Always promote wellbeing of students, and proactively safeguard students according to school safeguarding policies and procedures.
  • Skillfully integrate educational technology into practice, selecting the most appropriate tools to enhance the learning experience.
  • International school experience, particularly an IB background, is desired but not a necessity to apply.
