‘Typical of virtually all lessons are the strong and respectful relationships between staff and students. Pupils come to class ready to learn’ Ofsted 2017

Eskdale School is a successful, popular and growing 11-16 community school situated in Whitby on the North Yorkshire Coast. As a school we have teachers and support staff that from travel from areas such as Redcar, Guisborough, and Ryedale, as well as from Scarborough and Filey.

We thrive being a smaller than average school (500 on roll) which means as a colleague you will really get to know our students and our wider community family who all subscribe to our ethos of ‘ A place of belonging – a place of inspiration’.

We put huge emphasis on professional development, most of it in-house, and are proud of the high number of good and outstanding teachers who work in our school.  We are also noted for our ‘can do’ attitude. We are always keen to encourage new and/or established staff make their mark as soon as they are ready.

We are:

  • A ‘Good’ school in every area by Ofsted in 2017.
  • A school who works collaboratively with our fellow federated Whitby school - Caedmon College.
  • A school where British values are at the heart of our curriculum – so that all our students leave school knowing how to conduct themselves in the wider world.

In what we believe to be an outstanding opportunity, we are looking to appoint a specialist Teacher of Science to join our successful faculty. You would join a Science faculty of four which is staffed with Science specialists who continue to build year on year in terms of outcomes, curriculum and extracurricular options to our students. A key focus for the department is to build on the strengths and successes, and as our new teacher, you will work closely with the team who will support, develop and challenge you.

As a new teacher, we will invest in your future development as a teaching professional through our ‘Teaching Programme’. We are looking for someone who can grow and further develop into being a highly effective teacher, as well as someone who has the drive and ambition to make sure our students achieve their very best.

Join our team and build a wonderful career in a school you are passionate about with students you love to help learn. To arrange a visit please contact Garry on the details below.

We are proud to work alongside our eight other local secondary schools and we believe we have a unique opportunity for colleagues to grow, develop and thrive in their career as part of our coastal community.
