About Welling School
Thank you for taking the time to consider applying for the post advertised at Welling School. The successful candidate for this post will be a teacher who can take their love of teaching and use it to inspire and motivate students to achieve or exceed their absolute potential.
At Welling School our mission is to achieve high standards and fulfil the expectations of all students of all abilities and from diverse backgrounds. We passionately believe that every child does matter and that they deserve to enjoy their learning experience with us. Our dedicated staff place students' interests at the centre of everything they do, ensuring that students have high aspirations and are able to reach their full potential. Our 'Welling Ways' engenders the values of nurturing the whole child to be an inclusive citizen in preparation for their future life and work.
Welling School is located in the Borough of Bexley, just 25 minutes outside of Central London with excellent transport links. Our co-educational 11-18 students can study a broad range of subjects through our innovative curriculum. We are an oversubscribed Academy with a Visual Arts Specialism that has gained a national reputation for being at the cutting edge of contemporary practice in art. In February 2015 Ofsted judged the school to be good in every category, including the 6th form, where many of our students choose to stay to continue their studies. We are part of the TKAT family, one of the largest multi-academy Trust's in the South East of England, who's ultimate aim is to ensure that educational standards are driven up through the provision of outstanding teaching, leadership and learning for all. The Trust CPD programmes provide additional training opportunities to work alongside the school's excellent in-house training programmes.
We have excellent facilities and continue to invest in resources to enhance our students learning. We have a rich and full range of extra curricular activities including a school choir, sports clubs, STEM club, reading club and other performing arts and curriculum based activities, as well as our educational trips and visits and charity expeditions.
If you share our vision and values, then we would be very pleased to hear from you. I encourage you to make an appointment to visit the school so that you can see Welling 'at work'. We look forward to hearing from you.
