This continues into our sixth form where we teach A-levels in Biology, Physics, Chemistry and Psychology.
We have an “open door” lesson policy which ensures you receive support and we promote peer-to-peer sharing of practice, all designed to help you be the best teacher you can be. The Science department also has a specialist mentor who works closely with the team. Staff at our school work hard and we offer health benefits such as a subsidised gym membership with Freedom Leisure or if you prefer retail therapy, staff discounts via the Ark Rewards scheme.
