Tradewind & SANZA Principal Interviews – kickstart your career in the UK

Francis Combe Academy, Watford, Hertfordshire

Francis Combe Academy was established in 2009, known formerly as Francis Combe School, which was the first comprehensive school to open in Watford in 1966. Since gaining its Academy status, results at the school have been on an upward trajectory, and they were rated ‘Good’ in their most recent Ofsted inspection.

They are also very fortunate in benefiting from a major new building, which opened in 2012. This £25 million investment has cutting edge technology, flexible learning areas, inspiring internal and external spaces, and real links with the local community. All in all, it is a wonderful place in which to work and learn.

The Academy’s sponsors, the Mellor Educational Trust (MET), bring expertise and provision in a range of areas, allowing us to broaden our already impressive offer.

They are keen to recruit high calibre, forward-thinking staff who wish to be part of the current and future success story of Francis Combe Academy. You would be joining an exceptional team and fantastic students who inspire each other and visitors to the Academy as we raise aspirations, exceed potential and further the culture of developing successful, well-rounded young people who are building the personal, vocational and academic tools that will enable them to make the most of their lives.

The school welcomes applications from experienced and newly qualified teachers for the following vacancies from September 2018, with more to be confirmed:

Maths Teachers

(Sport & Science) PE Teachers
