Head of Faculty for Science
My name is Mrs Chittick and I have a Degree in Biology and Psychology. I have always enjoyed science and wanted an active job involving people, so I decided to become a teacher.
I did part of my teacher training at Leventhorpe and started working here full time in September 2012. I became Head of Biology in 2014, followed by Assistant Head of Science in 2016 and I took on the role of Head of Faculty at the beginning of this year.
My role involves working with a group of fantastic teachers to plan and deliver an exciting science curriculum. Ensuring students have a positive teaching and learning experience is really important, as well as overseeing assessment and making sure everyone is working safely in the labs.
I’m very excited to be in my new role and I have lots of ideas for promoting STEM careers and new extracurricular activities which I hope more students will become involved in.
