Science is a very successful subject at Soar Valley, and the department is high achieving, supportive and highly collaborative in their approach. Soar Valley College is a heavily over-subscribed 11-16 school committed to high standards, raising achievement and developing excellence in both our staff and students. We provide a vibrant and engaging curriculum that promotes the love of learning and prepares young people for the next steps in their lives. Ofsted rated Soar Valley an outstanding school back in 2014, where ‘teaching is exemplary’ and ‘students are proud to belong to the college’, and we believe this still remains the case today.

Academic outcomes and progress measures are strong every year, with the last two having a Progress 8 of +0.7. The thing we are most proud of however, is our unique and caring ethos, which inspires success for all, making this a great school at which to begin or continue your teaching career. You will benefit from:

• A strong personalised professional development programme, including a Teaching and Learning Coach for every new member of staff

• Being part of a superb team of specialists, who work extremely effectively together and also show individualism in their approaches

• A culturally diverse and highly motivated student body

• Being in a school where relationships are a real strength, ‘students’ behaviour and attitudes to learning are exemplary’ (Ofsted) and outcomes very strong.

• Excellent facilities to support learning
