We are a highly successful, community mixed comprehensive school with Teaching School status in a pleasant rural setting only 5 miles from the centre of Cambridge. We currently have around 1,800 11-18 pupils on roll including our new sixth form centre that opened in September 2011.
Our pupils are well motivated, staff morale is excellent and examination results at KS4 are outstanding: 87% of students attained grades 9 – 4 in Maths and English last academic year and 43% of all grades were 9-7: whilst at A-level 87% of grades were A* - C, and 36% of all grades were A* - A. The Sixth Form’s results are in the top 5% nationally for student progress made against predictors.
The Science department has and continues to have a strong reputation for the delivery of science at all key stages. At KS4 and KS5, teachers typically teach in their specialist areas, and across all sciences at KS3.
The biology team has developed its own schemes of work at all key stages to deliver an inspiring biology curriculum. The science department and biology team is a friendly, collaborative and hard working group of teachers and technicians, who all share a common enthusiasm for science and students’ education.
The post of Head of KS4 Biology offers an excellent opportunity for a candidate with relevant experience to develop their leadership and management skills. Candidates can apply for just the Teacher of Biology post or the Head of Biology (KS3, KS4) post, please ensure this is clear on your application. Whilst we already have someone in post as Head of Biology (KS5), we are looking for someone who is able to teach up to KS5. More details can be found in the College information pages.
