This is a successful Science department, consistently attaining results above the national average.

The department is fully resourced and this is a fantastic opportunity to join a dynamic, supportive and forward thinking team.

All staff must have a full DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) Enhanced Certificate before commencing employment which the school will process on appointment.
