We are looking for a well-qualified and dynamic Physics teacher who will inspire and challenge the girls to think and learn in a supportive and positive environment. 

Sciences are a popular choice for our students in the Sixth Form where they have the flexibility of opting for Physics A-level or Physics Higher or Standard Level as part of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. There are currently 77 girls studying Physics at this level.

The successful applicant will be part of a team of eleven dedicated professionals. The department is extremely well-resourced and full support with induction and continuing professional development is provided. 

All teachers are expected to contribute to the rich co-curricular life of the College, but there are no residential duties.

As one of the world’s leading schools, and with a strong pioneering heritage, our aim is to embody excellence, independence and empowerment in the education of young women. You will join a friendly and supportive community of committed professionals who believe that girls are at the heart of all we do. We are ambitious for their futures, collectively and individually, and have been so for over 160 years.

Applications are welcome from graduates and teachers from either the independent or maintained sector. Experience or ability to teach another Science is desirable but not a requirement of the post.

The Second in Department role requires initiative, flexibility in approach and outlook and an ability to bring imaginative and fresh ideas to contribute to the development of this already successful and dynamic Department. To be considered for this role, candidates must have proven success as an outstanding classroom practitioner, proven ability of the development of the curriculum, teaching practice and professional development of teaching staff.
