The post offers opportunities to teach throughout the age and ability ranges, to pupils who have an excellent attitude to learning. The ability to teach a Science specialism up to and including Key Stage 4.

The headteacher at the school, supported by the governors and an able and talented senior team, offers strong leadership that has ensured high standards are maintained. The progress students make has improved steadily for several years. Teachers are trained to ensure marking is thorough, frequent, and rigorous, with effective systems in place to identify underachievement. Swift actions are taken to help students catch up, and as a result of widely excellent teaching and encouraging 1:1 support, the gaps in attainment are closed, particularly between disadvantaged students and others.
If you believe you have the skills and drive to help make a difference at this school then we would love to hear from you. Please feel free to contact us at Randstad Education Preston, where we can discuss this and other exciting opportunities in the Education sector.
