In 2022 the faculty's GCSE results were close to national average with 69% of all science grades achieved being 4 or better and 55% of students gaining two or more grade 4s or better in science. Performance in Triple Science continues to improve year on year with 97% passing each subject and 27% achieving a grade 7 or high .

This position would suit an experienced teacher as well as an Early Career Teacher. If an ECT is appointed the role will commence from 1st July 2023.

For the successful candidate, a commitment to raising standards and a passion for developing young adults is essential: this entails a commitment to all learners, to excellence for all, and a belief that a good school makes a significant difference to learners’ life chances, levels of attainment and the wellbeing of the community as a whole.

His vision for the department is that pupils are challenged to gain valuable scientific knowledge, are able to apply their knowledge in novel contexts, are able to communicate their ideas effectively and are engaged in Science beyond the classroom.

The department comprises of; an Achievement Leader, three Assistant Achievement Leaders, eight main scale teachers, and four technicians (one a qualified teacher). They are a welcoming and friendly team and have a strong command of their subject. They are highly professional and dedicated to continually improving their subject knowledge and sharing best practice.
