Teacher of Physics

academic Full-time Closing date: 29 November 2023

Cranleigh seeks to appoint, for September 2024, a strong honours graduate to teach Physics.  This post would equally suit someone who is looking to start a career in the subject, or someone who already has some experience in the profession. The successful candidate will teach classes in Physics from years 9 to 13 in a lively and ambitious Department, as well as taking a full part in the life of this busy and friendly boarding school.

Cranleigh is a leading fully co-educational independent boarding and day Senior School consisting of around 700 girls and boys of 13–18 years of age. There is also a Preparatory School in close proximity.

Cranleigh aspires to be a beacon of excellence in learning and teaching and is committed to the continuing professional development of all employees. Accommodation is available with the post.

The post will involve teaching the full range of age and ability, so it is vital that the successful candidate enjoys the challenge of teaching a broad range of students – giving confidence and enjoyment to those who can struggle, whilst stretching and inspiring our most able. Cranleigh is an iPad school and the use of tablets is encouraged throughout the curriculum.

The successful candidate will be expected to get involved in all aspects of this busy boarding school (which would normally include one evening duty per week), including acting as a Tutor to a group of students within a Boarding House.

All teachers are expected to fully contribute to the wider life of the School by supporting the rich co-curricular programme and the ideal candidate would have expertise/experience in one or more co-curricular/sporting areas alongside their academic responsibilities.

Please read our ‘Recruitment Pack’ to be found below which gives an impression of the ethos to which it is expected that the successful candidate will contribute.
