Kingsway Park High School was established in 2010 and joined the Altus Education Partnership in February 2022. We are now a very popular oversubscribed school (1350 students in years 7-11 and 190 staff) located in central Rochdale. We are very proud of the high-quality facilities, resources, and environment that we provide for both staff and students.


At Kingsway Park High School we strive to transform students’ lives.  Through our relationships, we endeavour to instil both resilience and an intrinsic motivation to become confident, creative and highly skilled students, capable of meeting tomorrow’s challenges head on. We strive to establish a culture rooted in achievement and progress that encourages our students to grow academically, personally and socially; equipping them with the values of equality, fairness and openness. We pride ourselves on our relentless drive to achieve outstanding, high quality teaching that provides a safe, supportive and encouraging environment for all our students to be able to realise their academic potential in pursuit of educational excellence.


We are currently looking to appoint a new Teacher of Science who has a real passion for their subject and is equipped with the skills to maximise outcomes for students in Science at both KS3 and KS4. Science at KPHS follows the AQA specification where we teach both Trilogy Combined and Triple Science.  At KS3 we have a sequenced curriculum which enables students to build their knowledge and skills sequentially leading into KS4 following a bespoke curriculum using the AQA specification.


The science team is a warm and welcoming team, with a wealth of experience across all three sciences.  We take great pride in our support of ECTs and equally in providing in-house CPL for staff to constantly develop. We currently run our own CPL sessions to increase capacity to teach at grade 7-9 and enable staff to deliver content outside of their specialism.  We are a large team with currently 13 full time teachers, two part time teachers and two technicians.  Due to the popularity of Triple Science, we are now looking to expand our team further. We have developed a strong ethos around developing staff whether that be in their pedagogy or in increasing opportunities for responsibilities for those looking for career progression.


The team also offer extensive extracurricular sessions for students which we always encourage new staff to get involved with whether it be science club, games club or starting something new around a personal passion.
