What the school offers its staff

At St Cuthbert Mayne, we offer an ambitious and challenging Key Stage 3 curriculum until the end of year 9. We teach a well designed and sequenced curriculum that is aligned with the national curriculum and more. It is designed to teach students the fundamental knowledge and skills of science to enable them to be the scientists of the future.

Students in Key Stage 4 follow the AQA Combined Science Trilogy specification. All of our most able scientists have the opportunity to study triple science which gives them the chance to be ambitious and really challenge themselves.

At KS5 we offer BTEC Applied Science. The BTEC is a new qualification offered at St Cuthbert Mayne and has proved popular with our students who are enjoying a more vocational qualification.

As a department we work collaboratively to continuously improve the quality of science education here at St Cuthbert Mayne and are excited to welcome an excellent science practitioner into the mix.

Commitment to safeguarding

St Cuthbert Mayne School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful candidate will be required to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service Check and references will be taken for all shortlisted candidates.
