Teacher of Physics

King's CollegeSomerset

King’s College is a thriving boarding and day school of approximately 470 pupils. It combines strong academic achievement, traditional values and excellent pastoral care with a progressive, modern outlook, providing girls and boys aged 13–18 with the opportunities, confidence and ability to reach their full potential within a happy and caring environment.

We require an experienced teacher to join our physics team from September 2021 to replace a colleague who has gained promotion to be Head of Department at another school. The post would ideally suit a teacher with experience, however newly qualified teachers will be considered.

The successful candidate will be someone who can share their expertise and love of their subject, and teach lessons which inspire and that pupils enjoy. We require a teacher capable of teaching to A level in physics and the ability to teach to GCSE in another science would be useful although not essential. 

King’s College has a lively and friendly Common Room of over 50 full-time teachers, all of whom contribute to the school’s outstanding co-curricular programme of sport, music and many other activities. The ability to contribute in some way to this programme would be a distinct advantage. All teachers also tutor a small number of pupils and most undertake an evening duty in one of our boarding houses.

Newly qualified teachers will be supported in completing their initial year at King’s by the Head of Staff Induction, who has vast experience in guiding and training NQTs.
