A “fresh start” school now firmly “Good” – join our team on the way to outstanding.
Just 30 minutes by train from Central London, The Highcrest Academy is the first All Ability Academy in in the county of Buckinghamshire. It is culturally diverse and a vibrant school making it a fantastic place to teach. We have some students who will need all your support and yet we also featured in the national Ofsted report (2016) for providing challenge to the most able. Does this enthuse you?
There are approximately 950 students on roll, which includes the Sixth Form. A new building programme, due for completion in September 2018, comprises a brand new Sixth Form Centre, sports facilities including a gym and a new restaurant for both students and staff.
The Art department is a high performing and popular department who consistently achieve excellent results in both KS4 and KS5, and is praised by moderators, ASTs and the public for its work. Art is taught at all levels from Year 7 through to A Level in the Sixth Form.
Committed to raising attainment, you will be an excellent teacher with the ability to motivate our students to succeed to the highest levels in all key stages. The ability to teach Photography would be an advantage.
Highcrest offers an innovative and extensive CPD package that was recognised as an excellent example of good practice in our most recent Ofsted Inspection. No matter what your experience, we will help you develop into the teacher you aspire to be.
“I’d definitely say our INSET and CPD programme/sessions are far better than anything I’ve seen or heard of from other schools.” ... Head of Art
We also have a thriving House system that brings our whole school community together.
“The growing house system encourages competition between not only students but also staff, which creates a real community feeling, making it an enjoyable place to work.” ... Head of Humanities
If you are passionate about education and want to really make a difference to the lives of young people then The Highcrest Academy could be the school for you; a thriving school in the heart of the community, with free on-site parking, staff recognition schemes and also “Friday Biscuits”!
