Teacher of Physics (MPS)
Required from 27th August 2019
We are seeking a Physics Teacher to join our forward thinking and rapidly improving Science department. The department consists of 14 teachers supported by a team of experienced technicians. The facilities include a dedicated suite of 15 specialised teaching laboratories, a computer suite and 4 offices meaning that all staff have their own lab and dedicated office space. All labs are extremely well equipped enabling the department to keep practical science at the heart of its teaching.
Teaching is supported by a well-resourced Scheme of Learning written in-house to provide a clear progression for our students from Year 7 through to Year 11. At GCSE teaching is within specialism. Students follow the AQA specifications with over 40% of the cohort opting to study Triple Science. Teachers generally teach across all sciences at KS3 and specialise in one or two subjects at GCSE. There is a good uptake of Science at ‘A’ level with courses in ‘A’ level Biology, Chemistry and Physics and BTEC Level 3 Applied Science offered. Results at ‘A’ level are excellent (‘A’ level Chemistry ALPS 3, ‘A’ level Biology ALPS 4 and ‘A’ level Physic ALPS 5). As a department we believe the development of staff is a key aspect in raising standards for our students. We therefore work with subject associations and professional bodies to provide structured and supportive CPDL.
The department has an outstanding record for extra-curricular activities with students engaging annually in competitions such as the RSC Top of the Bench competition and The Big Bang Fair. More information about our recent successes in these events can be found on the department Twitter page @HAJCScience.
The successful candidate will be able to enthuse and motivate our students with their passion for Physics and creative teaching that makes Science accessible to all.
Applications from experienced colleagues and/or Newly Qualified Teachers are welcome.
For further information please contact Mr Tony Fraine, Head of Science.
