Teacher of Chemistry

Hampton Court House is a fast-growing independent school situated in beautiful riverside parkland between Richmond and Hampton in southwest London.

Hampton Court House has 240 pupils from Nursery through to Year 12. Our Sixth Form opened in September 2015.

Class sizes at A level are very small and our students are of a high calibre looking towards Oxbridge and other Russell Group universities.

We seek a charismatic communicator to teach in our science department in the senior section and to inspire our children with the beauty of chemistry, and help all of them to gain satisfaction from appropriate scientific achievements.

We are looking for well-qualified scientists, who will be able to inspire enthusiasm in our pupils and help to promote the high cultural and academic ethos of the School. We are able to offer a significantly reduced timetable and training support for new entrants to the profession. All of our teachers are expected to contribute enthusiastically to the wider life of the School.

Hampton Court House School is committed to creating an environment of success for all our children through effective teaching, reinforcement of strong values and standards, and keeping the child at the centre of everything we do. We are hugely pleased and humbled to have received the Independent Schools Council’s award of ‘Top small independent school’ this year, with 85% A*/A (9-7) at GCSE and over 50% A*/A at A-Level. However, none of this happens without the dedication and professionalism of both staff and student alike. At Hampton Court House, you are the deliverers of this success and will be supported completely, both personally and professionally, to achieve these life-changing outcomes.
