This College seeks to appoint a passionate, driven and enthusiastic Chemistry Teacher (Fixed
Term) who can teach the subject to A-level. The postholder will be able to stretch the highest
attaining pupils, (including to Oxbridge level), whilst also being able to use a range of strategies
to teach across the ability range. The department will provide the requisite support for an NQT, and
has its own comprehensive staff induction program. The College has been in a period of rapid
development, and the profile of science has grown significantly, culminating in the £3 million
refurbishment of the Science Department during Summer 2014. Results are excellent, with over 75%
A*/A at IGCSE Chemistry (2019) and 100% A*-B (2017) and 94 % A*-B (2018) at A-Level.
Department colleagues are always looking to emphasise the enjoyment and relevance of the
sciences, and this, naturally, makes the department a lively and interesting place. Practical work is
at the very heart of what we do, and pupils regularly perform practical work, or see demonstrations
of interesting and relevant Chemistry. The Chemistry department is ably supported by a fantastic
technician team, and new ideas and the development of online resources are welcomed. There are
currently six full-time Chemistry teachers who also play significant parts in the pastoral and extracurricular sides of the school.
The Science Department is housed in the recently re-furbished Science building, and consists of 15
teaching laboratories with a dedicated prep room and departmental library. The departments have
a large wealth of resources, and have invested in a number of innovative online tools. The
appropriate use of technology is always encouraged, and each classroom has wireless connectivity
to the school network. Each member of staff is provided with an Apple MacBook or Microsoft
Surface Pro, and all the teaching laboratories have digital projectors and visualizers. The Department
is leading College in the use of Microsoft OneNote and Microsoft Classroom to aid and advance
teaching and learning.
