We seek a highly motivated and energetic candidate to join a very successful and very well-resourced Science Department, as part of a team of 24 specialist science teachers and 6 support staff. Science is a very popular option at A level at the school with 26 sets in Year 12 and 13 covering all three science disciplines, including 7 Physics classes.

The school is situated on an attractive 33-acre site, has excellent facilities, and is committed to an extensive programme of staff development. Central London is easily reached by rail and the school is close to motorway links.
