Are you looking to join a team of inspirational Physicists?
The team are warm, friendly, and known within our community of pupils and staff, for their breadth of experience and extensive knowledge of their subject. They are enthusiasts who believe that experimenting and practical lessons are the key to understanding science. They inspire students day after day, with inspirational teaching and the students opt to take physics in high numbers. The department enjoys a very well-equipped department, which bears more similarity to a university lab than a typical school.
The pupils go on exciting trips (there is an annual CERN trip) and achieve excellent results, year on year, and many go on to study the subject at university. In terms of departmental results: in 2020 at A level 9/18 students achieved A*s and 2019 it was 9/24. At GCSE in 2020 out of approximately 105 students the department achieved 31 grade 9s and 29 grade 8s. In 2019 they achieved 27 grade 9s and 31 grade 8s.
This post is the perfect role for someone starting, or early in their teaching career, who would like the chance to be mentored by exceptional practitioners.
It could equally appeal to an experienced teacher who shares the department’s passion for teaching and learning.
The position becomes available from the start of the Autumn Term, September 2021.
