Maternity Cover

MPS / UPS (Outer London)

Required from September 2024, a well-qualified and enthusiastic teacher of Science to teach Physics in this lively and high achieving girls’ selective school.  The vacancy arises from a maternity leave anticipated to run from September 2024  to June 2025.

Physics is taught throughout the school.  Students take Triple Science at GCSE and the majority go on to study A-Level sciences.  We promote STEM opportunities for girls and would expect the colleague appointed to work actively towards this aim.  Our state of the art Science facilties (Sept 2017) include an astronomy dome and tracking telescope.  We are a well resourced school.
