We teach Dual and Triple Award GCSE (AQA Science A), and AQA Chemistry A Level.

The science Department has twelve teaching staff (five of whom are part-time) and four technicians (two of whom are part-time). We have eleven laboratories and two suites of laptops for use in lessons.

The department also encourages students to be involved with various lunchtime clubs and we would expect that the successful candidate would participate in this.
