Darrick Wood require, from September 2018, a well-qualified and ambitious part-time Teacher of Science. You will be working in a forward looking and supportive faculty with successful and committed staff. 

There are twelve modern laboratories, most of which have been newly refurbished, to provide an efficient and pleasant working environment.

There are seventeen science teachers and three technicians with one assistant technician under the direction of three Heads of Department. The Head of Chemistry is also Head of Faculty.

In 2015 we were proud to be awarded the World Class Schools Quality Mark. The School provides very good opportunities for career development and a full support programme for all new staff.
