Teacher of Physics

King's College London Mathematics SchoolLambeth North, Central London

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.

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. The vision is for mathematics to be used to develop ideas, analyse problems and make verifiable predictions. 

The school has two modern, well-equipped science laboratories, a design laboratory featuring an extensive workshop as well as a laser-cutter and 3D printer, a spacious prep room, and support from a university technician. Students are currently following OCR’s Advancing Physics, a course that was developed in consultation with the Institute of Physics. The course provides a simple, direct and rigorous approach to modern ideas as well as rich opportunities for candidates to engage in individual research. Physics is a central aspect of the school’s core curriculum and is thriving at the school: A Level results in August 2019 were 83% A*/A grades with value added at +0.73 grades per entry, there are many students who wish to apply to study it at top universities, there are keenly attended Physics 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.

Should the successful candidate be interested and appropriately qualified, there may be opportunities to teach Mathematics at the school also.
