Hampton Court House is the top ISA school for GCSE results (85% grades 9/8/7 in July 2018).  We are number 1 on the ISC’s table of ‘small independent schools’. We are also ranked 1st in our borough for A-Level results and, of the 2625 sixth forms in England with at least ten students taking A-Levels last summer, HCH ranks 10th and is the highest ranked independent school in the London area.

Hampton Court House is situated opposite Hampton Court Palace, adjacent to Bushy Park. We are a fast-growing school, with pupil numbers increasing each year. The school occupies a three-hectare site within landscaped grounds. There are 250 day pupils from pre-school to year 13. 

Hampton Court House welcomes pupils from all backgrounds and nationalities. 

We seek a charismatic communicator to join our Science Department and to inspire our children with the wonder of physics. We expect a lot from our staff but the rewards on offer and opportunities that a school of this size can provide make Hampton Court House a unique place to work for those looking to make their mark.

There is enormous scope for an enthusiastic practitioner to inspire and motivate as they see fit. We maintain close links with the National Physical Laboratory and run several clubs and events, including a very busy and popular science week. We believe in allowing teachers the space to develop their own teaching style and have a varied in-house CPD programme to encourage cross-curricular collaboration.

A-Level physics remains one of our most popular A-Levels with a large proportion of students continuing to study physics or engineering at university. Relationships between teachers and pupils are incredibly strong and allow teachers and pupils to flourish.

Qualified and newly qualified teachers can apply. We are able to offer a significantly reduced timetable and training support for new entrants to the profession.

Salary – negotiable dependent on experience and qualifications.
