What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking for an inspiring and energetic teacher of Physics who is as passionate about developing their students as people as they are about their subject. As a teacher at Harris Clapham Sixth Form, you will join a dedicated and dynamic team of teachers and staff in supporting our fantastic students.

For an informal chat about the role, you are invited to phone the school and speak with Sarah Heuston, Head of School. Research shows that some applicants are put off if they don't meet all criteria, especially women and people from a BAME background. We encourage and welcome any applicant who meets the majority of our criteria to apply.

The successful candidate will have:

  • QTS (or equivalent) and a good, relevant undergraduate degree
  • Successful teaching experience at A level (including as a trainee)
  • Understanding of theory/practice of effective teaching and learning.
  • Understanding of the importance of having high expectations for all students, both of behaviour and academic achievement.
  • Understanding of inclusive practices which offer equality of access to the curriculum for all, including special educational needs, English as an additional language and high achievers.
  • Understanding the importance of being a tutor.


What the school offers its staff

We want our students to be hugely ambitious, to dream bigger and to realise their aspirations, with the help of great teaching, a rigorous curriculum and a fantastic extra-curricular offer that broadens horizons and sparks curiosity. As well as our curriculum and enrichment offer, our students undertake a cultural perspective each term which opens up new worlds and ways of thinking. Above all, we really believe our students are capable of anything, and we are relentless in supporting them to pursue their ambitions.

Our opportunities for leadership development ensure that our students can make their mark on the world and to have the confidence and integrity to stand up for what they believe in. Our PRSHE curriculum supports our students to develop resilience and empathy, as well as building fantastic university and career skills for their brilliant futures.

We are a community who work together for the greater good of our academy; there is a culture of mutual respect and kindness between staff and students that I am immensely proud of.

Our academy is brand new and benefits from being a state-of-the-art building. It has been especially designed to deliver a Sixth Form education, including an emphasis on science, technology, engineering and mathematics-related subjects.

In addition to the opportunities for career development and progression, we also offer a competitive rewards and benefits package which includesour Harris Allowance for teachers on MPS/UPS,a Performance and Loyalty Bonus, Pension Scheme with generous employer contributions, a Wellbeing Cash Plan including access to a virtual GP, electric car scheme, and many other benefits.
