Collingwood College has a flourishing Science Department. The Department endeavours to ensure that students find Science a stimulating, enjoyable and highly relevant subject. The Department helps them to develop confidence in their scientific ability to meet new challenges and succeed. The Department has high expectations of all students and is focused on helping them achieve their very best, in classwork, homework, school examinations and public examinations. The Department provides pupils with a rich variety of lessons and a broad range of opportunities to extend their learning. The Department continually explores new and interesting ways to teach the subject, in order to engage pupils at every level and ensure all reach their full potential.
The Department results are improving year on year, with 71% achieving two or more Science GCSEs at Grade 4 or above, with 22% of the cohort gaining 3 Science GCSEs at grade 5 or above last year. Sciences are also popular in the Sixth Form where we offer A Levels in Biology, Chemistry and Physics as well as L3 BTEC in Applied Science.
A particular strength of the department is the way we identify and challenge our gifted and talented students. We also work closely with our SEND Department and Pupil Premium Lead to support some of our students, including extra lessons focused on key skills in Science. We offer extra curricular activities such as Science Club, where students can work towards Crest Awards and a Gardening Club who work on the development and maintenance of our college Eco-Garden. We also offer trips, for example focusing on engaging girls with STEM careers and an exciting STEM festival where students can meet and talk to people representing a variety of STEM careers and engage in related activities.
Collingwood College 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 applicant will be subject to an Enhanced DBS check.
