We are looking for a talented and driven individual to join us as Teacher of Physics.
The Bishop of Llandaff is an 11-18 co-educational Church-in-Wales High School. Located in the heart of Llandaff, the school is heavily oversubscribed and students attend from all over the city and in the surrounding authorities. Standards at the school are very high. In 2019, our students achieved oustanding GCSE and A level results in the reformed qualifications, key performance measures and new specifications. In Year 11, 98% of students achieved 5 or more A*-C grades, with 87% including English Language and mathematics. Students performed well across all subjects, resulting in 48% of students achieving 5 or more A*-A grades. Our best 9 score of 449 points is the equivalent to, on average, each child in the year group achieving 9 B grades. In Year 13, students shared similar success with 34% of all grades achieved at A*-A, 85% A*-C and 99% A*-E. However, the school is more than just about examination outcomes. Students take part in a broad range of activities that help them become "well-rounded" and our strong Christian ethos helps shape our students to become positive role models in our society. It genuinely is a happy place to learn and work!
The science department consistently achieves very high outcomes across all key stages. We are looking for a physics specialist to join our existing team. The role would be suitable for a newly qualified teacher looking for their first permanent position or someone with more experience searching for a fresh challenge in a new context.
