Biology, Physics, and Chemistry are the core subjects and teaching will take place in a one of three well- resourced laboratories. 

A willingness to play a full part in the extra-curricular and pastoral life of our happy and vibrant school is essential. Holme Grange has its own salary scale. The salary depends on age and experience.
