The candidate will ideally be able to teach either Physics or Chemistry to A level but all candidates will be considered.
The Science department has seen lots of success in both pupil outcomes and Progress 8 in the past few years and would look to continue these positive trends.

This has resulted in an innovative and creative department who use evidence based practice to develop their teaching and curriculum design.
We are a team that seeks to find new and interesting ways to allow pupils to learn. This is based on a supportive team ethos where planning and ideas are shared between teachers and technicians to reduce workload. As a department we have successfully overseen massive changes to curriculum and assessment and are looking to continue to improve to ensure that pupils get the best possible grades and experience in science.
The successful candidate will be a Science specialist who has the ability to put their vision for teaching and learning into practice, supported by an able team of staff. They will work closely with the Head of the Science department as well as the second in Science to support in the development and delivery of an engaging and challenging curriculum for students of all abilities.
