Jake's story   

Jake, head of science 
"I have been very lucky to have continued working at the school that I trained at, becoming head of chemistry in my newly qualified teacher and head of science two years after that. I still go to the people who trained me for advice and guidance because without them I wouldn’t be where I am now."
