STEM Leader and teacher of Physics

Salary: MPS/UPS + TLR 2b (£4,532)

Contract: Permanent, full time

Start date: September 2019 

Closing date: 12 noon, Thursday 25th April 2019

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic Science teacher to lead on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics across the school and in liaison with other schools in the area. The ability to teach Physics up to A level is essential. 

The Science department is housed in a beautiful new building of 14 bespoke laboratories and is staffed by a team of energetic, dedicated and resourceful professionals who are very supportive of each other.  The Maths department is housed in a separate block, and the Art, Design and Technology department (which includes Engineering) is housed in another separate area.  

Prince William School is located in Oundle, within easy commuting distance of Peterborough, Stamford, Kettering, Huntingdon, Wellingborough, and Corby.  It is a vibrant and friendly school which strives to deliver the challenging and inspirational curriculum our students need to prepare them for the ever-changing world of work. We have high expectations for all, and our aim is simple: to be the best school in Northamptonshire and beyond for every student, no matter what their ability or aspirations. 

Our students are well behaved, happy, engaging, and inquisitive individuals, who are proud to be Prince William students.  We are passionate about providing them with the best possible education, and they have high aspirations for themselves and look to us to guide them on their journey to adult life.

This is an exciting time to be joining the school as examination results have seen rapid improvement in the last two years.  In 2018, 67% achieved grade 4+ in both English and Maths, 45% achieved grade 5+ in both English and Maths, and our Progress 8 score was +0.31, with the gap between disadvantaged and other students closing by 0.45 grade compared with 2017, despite that gap widening nationally. 

The successful applicant will be passionate about inspiring students to get involved with STEM subjects, able to liaise between departments within the school and between schools in the area, and develop engaging STEM-focussed days involving students from various schools.  They must also be a successful, enthusiastic Science teacher who can teach Physics up to A level.
