Robert Pratt - Science - Director of Science, Outwood Grange Academies Trust

Science above all other subjects can open up a world of excitement, awe and opportunity. This can only happen through excellent delivery in the classroom. Robert is currently working as a Director of Science across six schools. This role means working collaboratively and strategically with a number of leadership teams to strive towards academic excellence through pupils’ achievements. Through his current work he has contributed towards science departments exceeding FFT targets, improving CVA and ensuring a higher percentage of students attain A*-C.

Robert was a successful Head of Science for 11 years and is skilled in the use of data and assessment to secure consistent progress across a science department with a record of delivering exam success for students. Robert is a proven leader, motivator and skilled practitioner in the classroom across all the sciences to GCSE and Physics to A Level. As science departments look ahead for changes around literacy, numeracy, a move away from vocational subjects for some students and changes to the primary curriculum he has a great deal of experience in delivering CPD across a wide range of areas including some experience at primary level.
