Pupils enjoy their science lessons, and the science team are hardworking, enthusiastic, and committed. The Science Department ulty has also undergone extensive refurbishment, with a suite of learning walls and Promethean boards recently installed.

If you are ambitious and passionate about science and recognise its importance for the development of all pupils, and will strive to provide excellent results in our already successful faculty, we would like to hear from you.

We are a growing, successful and oversubscribed school, striving for Outstanding. We recently become an all-through school, the first in Cambridgeshire, and have pupils from age 4 – 18.
