The ability to teach 2 sciences up to GCSE and Chemistry to A Level would be desirable.


Rated as Outstanding by OFSTED in November 2015, key findings include:

  • Teaching is outstanding. Teachers are passionate about their subjects, have high expectations and excellent subject knowledge. They support the leadership of the academy in its ambitious vision of success and the very best for all pupils.
  • A particular strength of the academy is its encouragement of STEM subjects



Our STEM provision extends beyond the curriculum with exciting fun-packed off curriculum STEM Days, a highly successful STEM Leadership program and numerous clubs and events throughout the academic year. Our recent ‘Y7 Magic of STEM’ Day and our celebration of British Science Week videos can be seen here:


We have exciting and innovative relationships with science specialist schools in Russia and Japan; together with our science trip to CERN in Switzerland we offer exciting international opportunities to interested scientists.


We offer a full and robust induction programme for all new members of staff as part of the school’s Staff Development Programme with further support for staff new to the teaching profession. We encourage professional development across the school including opportunities to share ideas for improving teaching and learning.
