d’Overbroeck’s School in Oxford is looking for a Physics teacher (Closing Date – Monday 29th January 2018)


This is an opportunity to join an exceptionally talented and successful department. The Physics department at d’Overbroeck’s is led by Charles Currie, while Anne-Marie Jones is Head of Years7-11 Science. The Physics department currently consists of seven teachers.

The OCR specification is used at GCSE (OCR Gateway), and A level (OCR A); at our international sections students study the iGCSE (Edexcel).

There is a significant uptake of Physics in the Sixth Form; with around 35 students in the Lower Sixth. Results are consistently strong at both GCSE and A level; every year some students go on to study Physics or Engineering related courses at top universities. We run an Oxbridge/extension program to support this.

Duties and Responsibilities

The successful applicant will be involved in teaching Physics at all levels offered by the school. Class sizes are small (maximum 15 to 16 in Years 7-11; 10 at the Sixth Form), which enables teachers to gain a detailed understanding of each individual student’s strengths and needs. We value independence of thought above mere acquisition of skills, and although we seek to provide the best possible preparation for public exams we aim to do so in such a way as to foster real understanding and enjoyment of the material being studied.

Technology is used to support teaching and learning throughout the school, including the use of interactive whiteboards, datalogging equipment, online learning, and in-class tablet computing.

Outside of lessons we are keen to provide students with opportunities for extension and support- with drop in clinics for support, STEM clubs at 7-11 and the Sixth Form, and Physics related trips.

Person Specification and Qualifications

We are looking for a talented and passionate scientist to teach Physics at all levels offered by the school (Years 7-13).  The ability to stretch and extend students in STEM activities and trips will be welcomed.  We place a high degree of importance on strong academic skills and subject knowledge, as well as the ability to convey enthusiasm and enjoyment of the subject to students across the ability and age range.  Flexibility of approach, a sense of fun, a readiness to respond to students’ individual needs and an enthusiastic, open approach to teaching are among the qualities we value. d’Overbroeck’s offers teachers and students alike a friendly and welcoming environment where classes are small and standards are high.

We are very happy to receive applications from newly qualified teachers or graduates who hope to enter the profession but don’t have a PGCE. NQTs receive a full induction programme through ISTIP (http://istip.co.uk/) with the support and guidance of senior members of staff. Our recent report from ISTIP generously praised our provision for NQTs.

Graduates who have not completed a PGCE receive an extensive in-house training programme. Several of our current teachers in other departments joined d’Overbroeck’s directly from university and have followed this route. We pride ourselves on our ability to offer support and training to NQTs and recent graduates.

All applicants will be expected to have a good degree in Physics or a related subject and be able to demonstrate their teaching ability. d’Overbroeck’s does not require that its staff possess a PGCE or equivalent formal teaching qualification, though many members of staff have an appropriate qualification.


The advertised post is a full-time one, but the School is always willing to consider applications from teachers who only wish to work part-time.

Further information

If you would like any further information at this stage, please feel free to telephone Alastair Barnett, Deputy Principal (Academic) on the main school number 01865 688600.


Applicants should complete the Form entitled Application for a Teaching Post. The Application Form, full Curriculum Vitae and a covering letter should be included in your application.

Please apply as soon as possible, but no later than Monday 29th January 2018
