Dr Carly Brooke MChem PhD PGCE (Secondary Chemistry) QTS
Co-founder, Director and Tutor
Carly graduated from the University of Liverpool with a First Class Master of Chemistry degree in 2008, and then with her PhD from Liverpool and PGCE from Liverpool Hope, both in 2013. She is currently Head of Key Stage 5 Science at a well respected Liverpool School. With an A/AS level cohort of approximately 65, she teaches A Level extensively and the results for her latest cohort were outstanding, with the value added measure for her A Level Chemistry cohort showing her students to be achieving outcomes well above the national average. During their most recent OFSTED inspection Carly's teaching methods were used as an example of how lessons were 'engaging and inspiring learners and invigorating teaching'. She is a very experienced tutor of both GCSE and A-Level chemistry, and has received outstanding feedback from previous students.
In addition to teaching Carly also works with AQA as a Science Practical Adviser, a role which sees her travel to schools across the country to advise A Level Science teachers and share best practice on the delivery of the Practical Endorsement aspect of A Level Sciences. She is also a paper 3 examiner for AQA. More recently she has begun working with STEM Learning delivering bespoke CPD, with a particular focus on supporting teachers in the delivery of tricky chemistry topics and improving learning through practical work.
In November 2019 Carly was recognised in the Northwest Educate Awards, coming runner up in the Teacher of The Year category. This was in recognition of the dedication she shows to her students, and the improvement in A Level Chemistry outcomes she has facilitated.
