Mr F Farhat – Head of Physics
Why I joined NCS?
I have been teaching Physics for 13 years and have a deep passion for my subject, particularly working with A level students. This was a great opportunity for me that I just couldn’t allow to pass me by. Working exclusively with KS5 students, where I can share with them my passion for the wonders of Physics, working in a wonderful new college, the NCS, and having the privilege to work with the outstanding students of Newham. At NCS I look forward to working with staff that all have the same goal. At NCS we want to nurture our students to love learning, to become excellent academics and furthermore to develop as well-rounded good people who are independent, critical and analytical thinkers, problem solvers, innovators and leaders.

Why I joined The NCS?
I joined the NCS because of the core values that the Sixth Form holds; especially the positive learning environment shown throughout the organisation in terms of teamwork, and the absolute commitment, respect and passion for learning displayed by all the students. There is nothing more beautiful than teaching my subject and sharing my passion amongst students who are eager to learn new things every day.
From the moment I showed an interest in working at the NCS, it has been very evident the degree of support offered by the leadership, academic faculty and administration staff alike, so I feel very privileged to become part of such wonderful and highly professional group of people.
At the NCS, I look forward to working with such a diverse and outstanding group of students.
From my part, I will be fully committed to nurturing my students’ curiosity and thirst for learning, as well as helping them to develop the skills needed to face the challenges that they will for certain encounter at university and later in their careers.
Dr Maugeri – Teacher of Mathematics / Physics
Why I joined The NCS?
As a maths teacher, I am passionate about teaching students how to develop their critical thinking when facing maths problems. Challenges should not be feared, but considered as exciting opportunities to learn and widen the horizon of our knowledge and logical thinking. The study of maths helps to develop a wide set of skills that are highly transferable in several other disciplines and important in our daily life. With that focus in mind, my aim is that of creating an environment where students can express their full potential as mathematicians and thinkers.
Here at NCS, I am excited to work as part of an outstanding team of teachers, who have very high expectations for their students and strongly believe in their ability to excel academically. My aim is to contribute to building the foundations that will sustain our students in their academic pathway and future careers, as well as throughout their lives.
