Physics Technician

Bishop's Stortford CollegeHertfordshire

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.

Bishop’s Stortford College is a wonderful place of learning – a place large enough to provide an outstanding range of opportunities for developing well-rounded, skilful and happy young people, yet small enough for each individual to be nurtured. 

At the College, we are aware that it is the people who make this possible. It is the energy and imagination of College staff, and their enthusiasm to go that extra mile, which creates the opportunities, experiences and very special atmosphere that our pupils enjoy and adds immeasurable value to the education we provide.


We reward all our employees with a fantastic range of benefits, including competitive pay, pension scheme, use of the College gym and swimming pool, parking onsite and a complimentary lunch during term time.
