Teacher of Physics - #49180
Royal Grammar School - TES
September 2024 until June 2025
We have a unique opportunity for someone to join our superb Physics Department.
This is a maternity-cover role which is estimated to run until June 2025, with the potential to extend beyond this by mutual agreement, if required. Ideally, we are looking to make a full-time appointment, but we may be able to consider a part time alternative (0.8+) for the right applicant. You must be an excellent subject specialist with the ability to inspire our enthusiastic students from Y7 to A Level and Oxbridge. You should be able to teach Physics to a high level.
Being ‘willing to go the extra mile’ is a major part of the role for all teachers at the RGS, not merely in specialist activities but in a huge range of co-curricular sporting, artistic and cultural work. We are keen to invite applications from those who would like to make their own distinctive contribution to this ethos. We very much value colleagues who are willing to contribute to the co-curricular programme.
Hours: Normal working hours will be those necessary to carry out the duties of the post.
Salary: The RGS has its own salary scale (which is above national pay scales for teachers) and provides ECTs with an appropriate programme of induction leading to QTS.
For full details and an application form, please see our website: www.rgs.newcastle.sch.uk/join-us/work-for-us
Closing date: 9.00am on Monday 26th February 2024.
