If you are passionate about your subject, with the ability, desire and enthusiasm to deliver lessons to students who really want to learn, we would love to hear from you.

PRE is a very popular option at both KS4 and KS5. We currently teach around 75 students at KS4 and around 55 at KS5 and our commitment to academic excellence is at the forefront of our teaching and delivery.  In 2020, 100% of students sitting PRE GCSE achieved 9-4, with 17% of those students achieving grade 9.  At A level 88% of students achieved A*-C in Philosophy with 73% achieving A*-B  grades. Following on from these results, a number of students went on to study Philosophy at university. Experience of teaching A level and/or a desire to do so is advantageous.
