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

  • to deliver our vision that ‘United we are world class.’

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.
