The uptake of science courses at A level is particularly strong.   The department also has an excellent reputation for its success with the development and mentoring of trainee teachers.  WHGS has had a number of School Direct trainees as part of United Teaching in the north and we have had considerable success with Science trainees over the last two years and with PGCE students prior to that.
