About The Green School for Boys
Thank you for your interest in our school. The information below will give you a flavour of who we are and what we are about. For more information please browse our school website or come and visit us We look forward to hearing from you.
The Green School for Boys is a Church of England secondary free school situated in Isleworth, Hounslow, in Greater London. The school opened in September 2017 for 120 boys in temporary accommodation. In 2020 the school will move into its fantastic purpose built building and will become a five form entry school. The school was opened by The Green School Trust which also runs the highly successful Green School for Girls. The boys' Sixth Form will be run in consortium with The Green School for Girls Sixth Form.
How the Trust works:
The Green School for Boys and The Green School for Girls are located across the road from one another. This proximity enables close collaboration and support between the two schools whilst allowing each school to develop its distinct offer. The Trust aims to balance consistency with creativity and freedom. For example: we do have a number of policies that apply to both schools; we do not have set schemes of learining that have to be taught at the same time in the same way at both schools. Staff from both schools benefit from joint training and moderation and some staff work across both schools. There is a strong sense of "family" in the Trust amongst the staff, and as the boys' school has grown there are also an increasing number of siblings who attend both schools.
Why join us:
Working in schools is incredibly rewarding and equally exhausting! We want to support our staff in doing their job so that both they and their students flourish. Strong positive relationships and being part of a community where we support one another with the difficult things and celebrate with each other the good things means trusting and caring for one another. Our pastoral care extends to our staff as well as our students. On top of regular line management and meeting cycles Heads of School and SLT are highly visible and available to talk to. The Executive Headteacher runs a regular "headspace" open to all staff and the Trust chaplain is also available to staff.
Below are a list of practical benefits we have put in place:
An additional training day in early March to support marking and moderation
Increased departmental meeting time for planning
Two data inputs a year reduced from three
Finishing a week early in the Summer term for TGSB
Staff chrome book for teaching staff
Flexible working/part time working/job share
Tea and coffee on tap
Refreshments/lunch on Trust training days and Christmas lunch
Free lunch for lunch duty
Social events such as Quiz Night, staff BBQ, the staff Christmas party are run across both schools.
