King’s College London Mathematics School (KCLMS) is for highly motivated students aged 16-19 with a particular aptitude and enthusiasm for mathematics. The school is seeking to appoint a dynamic and inspirational teacher of physics to help to realise the vision and ambitions for the school. Additional leadership responsibility may be available for the right candidate.
Physics at King’s College London Mathematics School is unique: not only does every student study this subject, but every student also takes Mathematics and Further Mathematics A-levels, meaning that topics can be tackled using considerably more mathematics than is usually assumed. Physics is a central aspect of the school’s core curriculum and is thriving at the school: A Level results in August 2017 were 77% A*/A grades with value added at +0.9 grades per entry, there are many students who wish to apply to study it at top universities, there are keenly attended Physics, Astronomy and Engineering clubs, and a considerable proportion of students choose to enter the AS and A2 Physics Challenges.
The successful candidate will have strong academic credentials. They may already have a proven record of outstanding teaching, or they may be new to the profession. A vital qualification will be that they share the vision of the school to help young people with a particular aptitude for the mathematical sciences find challenge and excitement in a curriculum that fosters intellectual growth and curiosity.
