This is an opportunity to join an exceptionally talented and successful department
The OCR specification is used at GCSE (OCR Gateway), and A level (OCR A); at our International Section students study the iGCSE (Edexcel).
There is a significant uptake of Physics in the Sixth Form; with around 35 students in the Lower Sixth. Results are consistently strong at both GCSE and A level; every year some students go on to study Physics or Engineering related courses at top universities. We run an Oxbridge/extension program to support this.
Teachers are usually asked to teach in two of the three sections of the school (Sixth Form; Years 7-11; The International Section). This particular post is most likely to involve teaching in the Sixth Form and the International Section (iGCSE in years 10 and 11), although this is open to negotiation.
Outside of lessons we are keen to provide students with opportunities for extension and support- with drop in clinics for support, STEM clubs at 7-11 and the Sixth Form, and Physics related trips.
We are very happy to receive applications from newly qualified teachers or graduates who hope to enter the profession but don’t have a PGCE. NQTs receive a full induction programme through ISTIP (http://istip.co.uk/) with the support and guidance of senior members of staff. Our recent report from ISTIP generously praised our provision for NQTs.
Graduates who have not completed a PGCE receive an extensive in-house training programme. Several of our current teachers in other departments joined d’Overbroeck’s directly from university and have followed this route. We pride ourselves on our ability to offer support and training to NQTs and recent graduates.
Applicants should submit a fully completed Application form, and submit this, along with a full CV and covering letter to HR@doverbroecks.com and a signed copy sent to:
333 Banbury Road
Please apply as soon as possible, but no later than 24 April 2018
