Contract type: Full Time
Salary: TLR 2B - £4,443
Contract term: Permanent

Are you ready to inspire a team to love physics as much as you do? 

We are a school where being a ‘geek’ is not a bad thing – in fact, it’s cool, for both pupils and staff. Our pupils are exceptionally well behaved: you really will spend your planning time on instilling a love of physics, not just controlling behaviour. 

As Head of Physics, you will take responsibility for leading a team of geeks – people who truly love their subject. Your leadership will ensure that pupils come to love physics as much as you and your team do.

We have a plethora of professional development opportunities.  For instance, if you want to take a Masters degree (delivered on our school site by the University of Worcester) we will fully fund it.  Our CPD is nationally-renowned and bespoke training packages mean you can advance quickly to the next stage of your career.

Parents love what we do. It’s why we’re so oversubscribed, with 4 times the amount of applications for every place we have. Teachers love working here too, which means pupils love their learning. We offer triple science to a large proportion of our key stage 4 pupils and we always run healthy-sized groups of A level physics so you will have lots of opportunities to specialise. Every member of the team is given the opportunity to teach the full age range if they want to. 

We need a talented teacher of physics who can lead a team to give pupils the best possible experience of this fascinating subject. Could it be you?

We urge you to visit us. There’s a real buzz about the place which no amount of words can convey, so please come to see Barr Beacon School for yourself.
