We are seeking to appoint an innovative, enthusiastic and ambitious Teacher of Science who ideally has physics as their specialism. We require someone who is totally passionate about science and teaching and in particular physics. Our success as a school is known to be rapidly improving and in particular our science department is a proud asset of our strong and cohesive school community.
Over recent years, our energetic science team have nurtured our students into highly studious and enthusiastic scientists. We have very large uptake for GCSE Separate Sciences and even more so in our A-level and BTEC Science programmes. We have a reputation for success in the local area and, for several years now, have proudly achieved and maintained positive value added scores and positive progress 8 figures at both KS4 and 5.
As well as our excellent academic performance in external examinations, we are also immensely proud of the destinations that our students go on to post-KS5. Examples of just some of the courses many of our most recent students have gone onto study are:
• Natural Sciences at Cambridge University
• Natural Sciences at University of Durham
• Aerospace Engineering at University of Manchester
• Engineering at University of Liverpool
• Electrical Engineering at University of Liverpool
• Medicine at Cambridge University, University of Liverpool, University of Glasgow, University of Manchester
• Genetics at University of Liverpool
• Dentistry at University of Manchester, University of Liverpool
• Chemistry at University of Liverpool
• Pharmacy at University of Belfast, University of Liverpool
As well as offering a comprehensive curriculum of GCSE’s and A-levels in Biology, Chemistry and Physics, we also offer BTEC Applied General Science and BTEC Applied Human Biology. We also offer a full programme of extra-curricular support including peer-peer tuition, outreach work with various universities, scholar’s programmes with Imperial College London and The Brilliant Club and much more. These all contribute to our development of the well-rounded and academically successful scientists that we produce and who proudly graduate from our sixth form college each year.
The successful candidate will teach predominantly KS4 physics. There may also be the opportunity to teach A-level Physics for the right candidate. Our team works collaboratively in the planning and development of our curriculum which means that the successful candidate will work in a team sharing ideas and planning an area of the curriculum. This has been really powerful in reducing our workload within the department.
