Our students are ready to learn and our desire for them to succeed is at the heart of everything we do.

Regular department time and shared planning enables consistency and a strong team ethic, and there would be opportunities for further responsibility in the form of assistant head of department for the right candidate is also available.

The position is suitable for either an experienced or newly qualified teacher within this supportive department. In a national climate of curriculum change and new assessment frameworks you will find a department that is continuously improving, and where there are systems in place to enable you to both support our learners and challenge them to reach new heights from day one.
