Vacancy - Teacher of Physics

We are looking to appoint a Teacher of Physics

Thank you for showing an interest in this post. This is a fantastic opportunity to make a difference in one of the school’s most popular departments. The role is to start on 1 September 2024, and part time could be considered, depending upon the knowledge and skills of the candidate. Previous candidates need not reapply as their applications will be considered.

We have 790 students on roll: boys only 11-16, and co-educational in the Sixth Form. The school has long been synonymous with excellence and the school’s reputation for providing a first-rate all-round education for local students has been strengthened even further over recent years. The Science department is perceived as a strength and asset in the school, with a large uptake in the Sixth Form. Our academic results speak for themselves while our achievements in Sport, Music and other activities are outstanding.

We have been recognised as one of the top schools in the country based on our performance in the last few academic years, and students have regularly accepted offers for Oxbridge and the top Universities. The friendly, cheerful atmosphere of the school helps our students enjoy learning and, as they grow into young men and women, we enable them to take increasing responsibility for themselves and for others around them.

To the right candidate, this post will be an extremely rewarding experience, an opportunity to really make a difference. I hope that having read the information and looked at the information on the website, you will decide that Carre’s is the right school for you and that you will make an application. To do so, please submit the application form and a letter of no more than two sides of A4 in which you should cover:

  • Your experience of teaching to date;
  • Your educational philosophy;
  • Why this particular post would suit you;
  • How you would contribute in taking this department forward; and
  • Relevant interests that would enrich students at Carre’s.

Completed applications should be emailed to Mrs J Body, PA to the Executive Headteacher of the Robert Carre Trust, and be in school no later than midday on 13 May. Interviews will take place soon after this date, but we reserve to right to call candidates to interview before the closing date. If you would like further information about the post or an informal discussion, please contact Mr Luke Whiting (Head of Science.)

You are warmly invited to visit our school and should contact Mrs J Body (Head’s PA) to book a visit, but we recognise that this may be difficult, and it does not preclude you from applying or being called to an interview if you are unable to visit us beforehand.

As part of the Robert Carre Trust we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff to share this commitment and to undergo enhanced DBS checks.
