    The ability to teach Physics at key stages 3, 4 and 5 from previous roles in UK classrooms is a prerequisite.  Candidates will have an appropriate teaching qualification recognised in the UK and have a strong academic background with a good honours degree or equivalent in Physics or other related subject and a genuine love of the subject. You will have very good teaching, communication and interpersonal skills and a willingness to participate in whole school life and support the ethos of the school.

    Science teaching staff contribute to the teaching of KS3 science in Years 7 and 8. In Year 9, a specialised Physics course has been written specifically to encourage the students to appreciate and enjoy Physics and to prepare them to start the GCSE course in Year 10.  All members of the Science Department teach the Edexcel GCSE Science course, either to Separate Science or Combined Science groups.  The Edexcel A Level Physics course is followed. Teaching groups are typically small.

    Physics A level is popular in the school with the number of students rising consistently over recent years - results in the school are very good with the large majority of students gaining A* or A grades.  The department prepares many students for Oxbridge in addition to the normal curriculum as well as enters them for Science and Physics competitions.
