The Grange is seeking to recruit a Teacher of Chemistry on a full-time, fixed term basis from 29th August 2019 to 20th December 2019 to cover maternity leave.  The department is one of the most successful within the school at both GCSE and A Level, and the successful candidate will have the opportunity to build on this success and embed the new examination specifications. In each of Years 10 and 11 approximately 90 students study for the Edexcel IGCSE in Chemistry and post-16 we have approximately 25 students in each of the LVI and UVI studying for the OCR A Level in Chemistry.

In 2018 the following public examination results were achieved:

• A Level Chemistry – 91% A*- A (with 45% A*and 100% A* - B)

• IGCSE Chemistry – 97% A*- A (with 79% A* and 100% A* - C)

At The Grange, Chemistry is taught where possible from a practical based approach. Learning is taken beyond normal lessons with an active Chemistry club, participation in Salters’ Festivals, and the RSC Top of the Bench and Young Analyst competitions. We visit Liverpool University for a spectroscopy workshop and prepare and enter students in the UVI for the RSC Chemistry Olympiad and in the LVI for the Cambridge Chemistry Challenge.
