The Science department is a leading department across both schools. The Achievement Leader of Science is talented and enthusiastic. He has worked tirelessly, as part of the department, to drive up standards of achievement and attainment. The department was highly praised during the June 2018 Ofsted inspection.
The department comprises of; an Achievement Leader, two Assistant Achievement Leaders, Deputy Headteacher, six main scale teachers, four technicians (one a qualified teacher) and two full time teaching assistants.
