MCA is a small, friendly, vibrant academy with high standards and expectations. We pride ourselves on knowing every young person well. Student welfare is at the heart of all our work and we have the highest aspirations for every child in our community.
We are at a pivotal point in our history. In our first inspection since becoming an academy we were judged as being good in all areas in October 2016. GCSE results have improved year on year and we are determined that we will become an outstanding academy.
In September 2019, it will be an exciting time as we relocate to a purpose built new-build academy in Bordon. Currently under construction with an investment in excess of £30M, it will include state of the art facilities for all departments.
The Science department has recently undergone a complete transformation. The results are rapidly improving under the dynamic leadership of our recently appointed Head of Department who has the full support of a completely new team of specialist science teachers and high quality technician support.
There is an absolute commitment from all members of the team to match the performance of the other core subjects.
Students are taught in ability sets which are relatively small in comparison to other schools giving each teacher an opportunity to personalise their teaching to meet the needs of the students. Students are assessed termly giving staff an accurate process to track progress. Students have ample teaching time throughout their time at Mill Chase with all years having 9 hours each fortnight.
At present, the department has five purpose built laboratories, a large prep room, a staff area and a department office.
In 2019, when we relocate to the new site, students will enjoy seven brand new science laboratories. This is a really exciting time for Science at MCA.
I extend an invitation for you to visit our academy and discuss the post with me in more detail. Corinne Tutton, PA to the Principal, will be pleased to make arrangements for you and can be contacted at email@example.com or telephone (01420) 472132.
