About The City Academy, Hackney

I am delighted to invite you to consider one of the posts we have on offer at The City Academy, Hackney. I am confident that you will be impressed with the academic standards, behaviour and ethos we have established. We have created a high-quality Academy with the highest levels of achievement and self-discipline, and a broad, dynamic curriculum designed to help students achieve the highest personal and academic standards. Since opening in 2009 we have achieved two 'Outstanding' grades from Ofsted (January 2011 and January 2012), judged to be 'Outstanding' in every category. In 2017 the progress 8 score was 1.07.

We expect students to work hard and to show dedication and commitment to the Academy's rules. There are clear boundaries about the responsibilities of students both in terms of their conduct, and their self-respect and respect for others. In return, The Academy provides them with an excellent education both in terms of examination success and personal development helping them develop all the skills and values they will need to be successful in later life.

We are looking for ambitious staff who are enthusiastic, hardworking, conscientious and energetic individuals. We want people who want to work with young people, to ensure that, regardless of gender, ethnicity and economic circumstances they achieve to the best of their ability. In return we offer a range of staff benefits and development opportunities. You will be able to learn from some of the best and most able practitioners in the country. All of our staff are experts in what they do with a wealth of talent and experience in what makes an 'Outstanding' school. There is a far reaching commitment to ensuring that all of our staff are given the access to excellent development and induction programmes. There is also a clear imperative, driven by Senior staff, to minimise bureaucracy and maximise impact, which to date has been hugely welcomed by staff and produced outstanding results for our students.

The City Academy is a very special place to work. If you think you want to join us in creating an exceptional Academy which transforms the opportunities for the community we serve then I would love to hear from you.
