  • We are looking for an excellent classroom practitioner who can inspire both colleagues and students and lead by example. We welcome applicants from either selective or wide ability settings, who are keen to work with high achieving and motivated students in a strong and growing department, with improving results and a growing number of students studying Science at A Level in recent years.

Student engagement and interest across all year groups is positive and beyond the classroom students engage in a wide range of extra-curricular activities in Science and STEM activities.
