Are you a Science Teacher looking for a new challenge? Do you want to be part of an 'Outstanding' school? Do you want to be a part of an innovative team transforming the lives of children in the heart of London? Do you value developing the whole child as well as securing them brilliant GCSE results?
This particular client opened in September 2013 and is a pioneering secondary school based in Waterloo. Ofsted graded us as Outstanding in all areas, in June 2015, calling us "A school where no child is left behind" (Ofsted, June 2015). Now in its fifth year, we have 600 students across Year 7 - Year 11. With a Sixth Form opening in September 2018, there will be many opportunities for leadership and regular professional development.
Their main goal, our vision, is to enable their students to secure their dream job - implicit within that is the need for excellent GCSE results. However, we value our students as individuals and care deeply about the citizens they become. Our curriculum is structured to reflect our straight forward vision, with our unique Enrichment programme forming part of the everyday curriculum and enhancing our core traditional academic subjects.
The Ofsted inspection team who visited the Academy in 2015 noted that "behaviour and safety are outstanding. Students have a strong work ethic; their social responsibility and pride in their community are particular strengths".
Staff go above and beyond expectations to ensure that our students benefit from outstanding teaching and learning within the classroom. In 2015 Ofsted noted that "the quality of teaching is outstanding. Expectations of work and behaviour are high and lead to students achieving extremely well". They work collaboratively across departments to develop our pedagogy and assessment practices. They spend time on a weekly basis supporting and observing both within our own subject area and in others, allowing us to integrate best practice across the school.
Success in later life is a key priority for us and we have embedded in our curriculum, the skills that we feel will facilitate this for our students. They have a clear and transparent behaviour management system that is consistently applied throughout the school, allowing teachers to teach without having to worry about low level disruption or students being ill-equipped for learning. The Ofsted inspection team who visited the Academy in 2015 noted that "behaviour and safety are outstanding. Students have a strong work ethic; their social responsibility and pride in the community are particular strengths".
This is an exciting opportunity to become part of an outstanding, high performing team who are passionately committed to securing the best possible life chances for the young people of Waterloo. This role will require huge amounts of resilience, perseverance for the long haul and a constant drive for innovative excellence. However, this is also a role that will be incredibly rewarding and will offer exciting progression for the future.
