The Social Science Faculty is one of the most successful in the Academy. We have 20 members of staff teaching across nine subjects and in all three key stages. The faculty is committed to ensuring that every student has an equal opportunity to success and achieve well, regardless of their individual starting points. We want students’ progress to improve year on year and we will do this through a relentless approach to improving our T & L practice by sharing good practice, joint planning and maximising our T & L and Faculty meeting time. We aim to give all our pupils an engaging and rewarding learning experience which will give them a love of our subjects and an understanding of their importance. Every two years the Faculty gets reviewed by an external moderator and in our last review we were judged to be outstanding.
The RE department is a small but very successful section of Social Science Faculty. It currently has two members of staff and consistently averages 80% Level 4 and above at GCSE and 50% A to at C at A-level. The new candidate will be expected to teach humanities to KS3 (RE, Geography, History and Citizenship) and RE to KS4 and KS5.
