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 and are currently seeking to recruit a teacher of Science / Chemistry who can start in September 2019 . We currently have around 1800 11-18 pupils on roll including our sixth form centre that opened in September 2011.

Our pupils are well motivated, staff morale is excellent and examination results at KS4 are outstanding: in summer 2018 the total grades at 9-7/A*-A were 42%, 9-4/A*-C were 92% with 88% of pupils achieving at least a grade 4 in English and maths. Our Progress 8 figure in 2018 was +0.78 which placed us in the top 5% of all secondary schools. At KS5, the Sixth Form’s results are in the top 5% nationally for student progress made against predictors, with 36% of all grades in 2018 at A*/A grades. The school has consistently been rated by Ofsted as Outstanding over very many years; at the last full inspection we were rated as Outstanding in every measure.

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. Each subject team has developed its own schemes of work at all key stages to deliver an inspiring science curriculum. The science department and is a friendly, collaborative and hard-working group of teachers and technicians, who all share a common enthusiasm for science and students’ education.
