Hill House is the leading co-educational independent school in South Yorkshire. It is an exciting and expanding school of some 700 children from age 3 to 18, where teachers can teach and children can learn. The school was founded in 1912 and occupies a splendid site outside the South Yorkshire town of Doncaster.
In an £8 million move, the school relocated from an urban site in September 2008, and now occupies stunning facilities, harmonising the history of an outstanding campus with new, purposely designed 21st century facilities. A £1 million Sixth Form Centre and Music School was opened last year. The progress of the school was recognised when Hill House was named Independent School of the Year 2012/2013.
The Science Department is accommodated in its own wing of the school with modern well equipped laboratories. There are currently 6 full time Science Teachers in the school, supported by a full time laboratory technician.
GCSE results are very strong; with the majority of pupils studying Separate Sciences. In 2016, Chemistry GCSE results saw 98% A*-C and 69% A*/A.
Interest in A-Level Science is high with a good uptake to all three Science courses and excellent results with 50% of students achieving A*/A in A Level Chemistry in 2016. Extra-curricular Science activities are also very popular with a number of pupils enrolled in the CREST Award Silver programme each year, active Biology, Chemistry and Physics Societies and a number of educational visits each year. With these strong foundations, the Science Department is at the forefront of the school.
The successful candidate should be an enthusiastic and inspirational teacher with great ambition for the pupils, and possessing a strong track record of success at GCSE and A level Chemistry. Hill House prepares teachers for QTS via the Independent Schools Teacher Induction Panel, which is regulated and fully approved by the Department of Education.
GCE Chemistry follows the OCR syllabus. At GCSE all subjects follow the AQA syllabus.
