The Governors of this highly successful and heavily oversubscribed academy that is “outstanding” are looking to appoint an experienced Science Technician.

The school’s A Level results, following the opening of a Sixth Form in September 2013, are just as outstanding with 62.7% achieving A*-B and 89.8% achieving A*-C. Our Progress 8 score is +0.98. In Science, 56% of all GCSE grades are A* or A and our A level results are above the national average in all sciences. Our school also leads the successful West London Teaching Schools’ Alliance.

We are looking to appoint an experienced Science Technician who will help with the running of the Science Department, aiding students in the safe use of equipment and contributing to the maintenance of equipment plus the preparation of materials including chemicals used in the lessons.

The ability to use a range of scientific equipment would be advantageous together with a knowledge of relevant health and safety issues, but training will be given.
