The Science Department is successful in many ways. Science is taught throughout KS3 with support from the Head of Science together with the Heads of Chemistry and Biology.  At GCSE the majority of students are entered for triple science.  Approximately two-thirds of students in KS4 follow the Separate Science route and the remainder pursue the combined award.  Outcomes in all Science disciplines at KS4 are particularly strong with regards to attainment and progress measures.  The successful applicant will receive training and support from a very collegiate and hard-working group of professionals.
