The sixth form was judged to be Outstanding at our most recent Ofsted inspection.

An enthusiastic and committed teacher is sought to lead the teaching of Government and Politics and contribute to the teaching of Law at A-level. The two subjects are popular and are well resourced. Attainment and progress rates have been above the national average for a number of years.

This temporary position becomes available due to the present post holder taking maternity leave. The contract will commence on 1st September 2021 and will last for the duration of the maternity leave which is expected to be until June 2022.

We emphasise pupils’ whole development, offering high standards of teaching in a range of courses to cater for all abilities, a wide extracurriculum and making a priority of spiritual nurture, with religious worship and teaching at the centre of school life. High academic achievement over the last four years resulted in national recognition with nearly 80% of our Year 11 pupils gaining at least five higher grades with English and Mathematics.
