Are you Mad about Science? Curious about our place in the Universe? Do you want to be part of an innovative team working with fantastic young people, then this could be the job for you?
We are looking to recruit a suitably experienced Technician to join our hard-working Science Faculty. Working under the guidance of the Team Leader Technician you will provide assistance and advice in meeting the practical needs of the faculty, predominantly in physics but also across the wider science curriculum. Experience of working in a laboratory setting and/or in an educational setting would be a distinct advantage. A practical application or specialism in Physics would be desirable, together with general knowledge of all 3 sciences – although full training and support will be given for the role.

In GCSE, Physics A*-C grades were 99% with 59% of grades being awarded A* or A.
