Southfields AcademyWandsworth

Two Term, Fixed Term post starting January 2022 until July 2022 in the first instance, potential to extend by mutual agreement.

Who we are:

We are a successful, dynamic and forward thinking science department with a strong emphasis on developing teachers in their subject specialism. The team are constantly reflecting and sharing ideas. Heads of subject regularly hold CPD on their specific areas based on feedback from the team with the aim being to improve and refine subject knowledge in preparation for the new GSCE and A Level qualifications. Our customised KS3 syllabus enhances our pupils' ability to become successful GCSE students through a spiralled curriculum that reinforces key scientific concepts and progressively builds upon them to GCSE.  This method has a demonstrable impact with progress in Science being +0.62, placing us in the top 6% of schools fro science results nationally.
