The Quest Academy - Coloma Trust, opened in September 2010 and has made rapid improvements. This summer we celebrated record achievements including our best A-Level results ever, 100% pass rate and 32% A*-A.    

We seek to appoint a dynamic and well qualified Head of Science to join our high achieving school. Applications are considered from either exceptional existing or aspiring leaders in Science. Candidates should be able to teach across the age and ability range. Evidence is required of successful performance and impact on student outcomes. The Science department is already a high performing department achieving in excess of 75% C+ at GCSE year on year and we are keen to maintain and stretch these standards further in the coming years. 

Quest is an Academy on a journey to excellence. At the Academy, through the sponsorship of The Coloma Trust, we are quite clear that the purpose of our journey is to provide a high quality, all-round education for our pupils, present and future, in a calm yet exciting learning environment.

Situated in an iconic 'state of the art' purpose built £16m building, we have received an SSAT Educational Outcomes Award for being in the top 20% of schools nationally, in addition to winning two Good Schools Guide Awards. In 2016 under the new "Progress 8 (P8) Score" system, GSCE success was measured at +0.16 with 58% A*-C grades; pupils achieved over a tenth of a grade more progress per subject than the national average. Our Sixth Form (Quest6) is popular and very successful; we are in the top 12% of A-level providers in England for 'Value Added'.

We Offer

  • A school with a strong commitment to your professional development and career management
  • A working environment focused on Teaching and Learning and raising standards for all
  • The opportunity to work in a team where your skills, enthusiasm and hard work will be appreciated
  • The opportunity to work within the largest cosmopolitan centre outside of Central London, undergoing substantial redevelopment, growth and change
