At Bootham we seek to liberate and equip our young people to flourish as adults and live adventurous lives that will serve to create a better world. As our new Head of Physics you will play a vibrant and integral role in helping achieve this vision by upholding the very popular and successful standing of Physics among our students, at both GCSE and A Level. 

Our well-resourced Physics Department includes an astronomy tower, two dedicated laboratories and a purpose-built prep room. We’ve invested heavily in data-logging equipment and were one of the first schools in the country to acquire a class set of PASCO’s touchscreen LXi handsets. 

Our Physics students have enjoyed visits to CERN and ITER, enjoy attending public lectures in Physics and have a good track record at local competitions like the Physics Olympics and York Schools Science Quiz. Our A-level students have entered the British Olympiad and a number of girls have submitted essays to the Newnham College Essay Competition. 

Bootham is a very different kind of school – our Head, Chris Jeffery, introduces it to you in our detailed and informative recruitment brochure, attached.  Take a look, and if you like what you see, we would love to hear from you.
