The Fulham Boys School is seeking a Teacher of Psychology to join our successful psychology department.

The department has sustained success at KS5, gaining an ALPS 3 in 2023 and achieving 100 per cent A* to D. Psychology is a very popular subject at KS5 and is therefore offered in two different option blocks. Students are excited to learn psychology, and its success is underpinned by the passion of our teachers. Lessons are dynamic and exciting with a “no excuses” approach to challenge and engagement. We are looking for an outstanding teacher whose passion for psychology is shown throughout their lessons. The role also comes with an exciting opportunity to introduce psychology at KS4 for the first time in September 2024, and continue to raise psychology’s profile in KS3 through our extensive extra-curricular programme.

We offer all of our students an extended school day with all of our boys in school until 4:10pm Monday to Thursday and 2.45pm on Fridays. During this time, our extensive co-curricular offer enables students to take on a new sport or find their passion in debating, gardening or social enterprise. We want our students to leave FBS equipped for the workplace and life beyond.
