What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking for an enthusiastic and innovative teacher of Physics, with strong interpersonal skills and a commitment to achieving high standards within a thriving department. Sciences are a popular option for students with combined and triple science offered at GCSE and multiple A Level sets in all three disciplines. The successful candidate will have a strong academic background and be an excellent classroom practitioner who is capable of inspiring and motivating students and who can confidently teach Science at A level and GCSE.

All students study Science at GCSE with triple science growing in popularity. We currently have over 100 students studying Sciences at A level, in 8 sets. A large number of students apply to Oxbridge and Russell Group universities to study Medicine, Dentistry and a broad range of other science related subjects. The Science team comprises 16 specialist teachers, plus four technicians and the Department is housed in 13 labs in the centre of the main building. The Science Department runs a wide range of super curricular opportunities for students in KS4 and KS5 including the UKBC Biology Olympiad, the RSC Chemistry Olympiad and the British Physics Olympiad. We have also run the Cambridge Chemistry challenge for our 6th form students. These are in place to inspire and challenge students who enjoy the sciences. We have recently started giving our students the opportunity to develop their research by participating in Institute of research in schools (IRIS) projects.We also run weekly and oversubscribed extra-curricular opportunities for students at KS3 and 4 in the form of a weekly STEM club and dissection club.


What the school offers its staff

We are committed to supporting staff wellbeing in a variety of ways. The good working relationships within the staff body, and between staff and students is why many colleagues have chosen to stay with us for the long term. We are also strong in supporting staff career development and colleagues are successful in securing promotions at all levels. We support colleagues in pursuing NPQs and offer a secondment programme onto the Senior Leadership Team for middle leaders.

Although we achieve excellent results year on year and are heavily over-subscribed, we are not complacent. We know there is always more to do, and we work together to continuously reflect upon our successes and areas for development. We are keen to hear the voices of all our stakeholders.
