Sixth form

Will I be teaching Key Stage 5?

Find out how soon they will expect you to teach Key Stage 5.  Many NQTs concentrate on teaching their specialism up to Key Stage 4 and then, when they are confident, move on to A-level or equivalents. Equally, will the school let you move on to Key Stage 5 as soon as you would like to? If you already feel ready but they want someone to spend most of their time teaching science lower down the school, is this OK? Also, find out how many students go on to study physics at university and whether this number is rising or falling. This will give you an idea of the current vitality of physics at this school.
