Founded in 1646, Reading Blue Coat is a leading independent day school of circa 800 pupils from ages 11 to 18. The School is located on a beautiful 46-acre campus in the village of Sonning, just outside Reading.
The School employs more than 200 staff, of whom 50% are academic staff, and provides a stimulating, friendly and supportive atmosphere in which each pupil can realise his or her full intellectual, physical, and creative potential.
An enthusiastic, inspiring, physics teacher with outstanding subject knowledge is required from January 2023 to teach at all stages of the School, including A Level. Physics and the other sciences are very well resourced and are popular at the School. Results in the department are strong.
The successful candidate will have energy, drive and great ideas, whether as an experienced Teacher of Physics, or an able NQT who can meet the demands of a thriving physics department.
Our teachers seek to encourage both class and individual study beyond the requirements of the curriculum. You will be expected to contribute to the co-curricular offerings of the department and the wider life of the School, to which your energy, warmth and pastoral instincts will lend themselves.
The School provides a stimulating and vibrant environment in which to teach, and you will join a highly committed and enthusiastic academic team.
We offer an excellent salary and benefits package, dependent on qualifications and experience.
