Offering education across all key stages which has consistently been judged ‘Good’ by Ofsted, most recently in May 2018
Facilities at the school are first class; from the building itself to the resources which support the delivery of a broad curriculum including an extremely popular and well maintained Learning Resource Centre. Our playing fields, gymnasium, drama theatre and ICT facilities all contribute to ensuring we deliver an education for character, a feature of all Haberdashers’ schools that is part of our DNA.
We take a comprehensive mix of children and expect nothing less than the highest personal goals for each pupil. Where pupils are disadvantaged, we expect them to make rapid progress to catch up with their peers. Our focus is to ensure each child we teach can read, write and do mathematics to a good standard in order to be successful in their education and life.

The successful candidate will assume overall responsibility and accountability for Biology across Key Stage 3, 4 and 5 and to contribute to the continuing development of the Science curriculum in support of the Curriculum Director and to the overall development of this already strong and successful department. The School offers a broad range of Science qualifications; at GCSE we deliver combined Science and separate triple Sciences; at Key Stage 5 we currently offer Applied Science Diploma and A level Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. We are looking for an innovative and forward– looking individual who can inspire students and contribute fully to a very active and successful Science team.
