Due to an expansion of the curriculum for core subjects, we are excited to offer this fantastic opportunity for an ambitious teacher of Science to join our supportive team from September 2018.

We have incredible students at Prince William. We are passionate about providing them with the best possible education and we place them at the heart of everything we do. Our students are well behaved, happy, engaging, and inquisitive individuals, and they are very proud to be Prince William Students; they have high aspirations and look to all our staff to guide them on that journey. Equally impressive are our staff who work tirelessly to achieve our excellent results and to help each student truly achieve their best. We are extremely proud to have such wonderful colleagues and grateful for the life chances they are giving our young people.
We see the investment in our staff as crucial as we look to build on previous successes for our students and the school.
