Science Subject Leader –MPR/UPR and TLR 2b (£4735) 

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for an aspiring leader to develop their career in a brand-new school fully supported by the infrastructure of a highly successful Trust.  PA High is unique.

PA High will be structured so that KS3 will run like a middle school. This middle school model will be supported by an exceptional pastoral team with extensive knowledge of the students and their families.
