Would you like to be part of a Primary School that helps children be DJs for our radio station, musicians, actors and performers for our recording studio and theatre? The Orion is a school with a difference… we help our pupils be exceptional young people by 11 years old. We believe every child can be a star and we do everything we can to make it happen.

Are you a dynamic and “determined to make a difference” kind of teacher? If so, we would like you to join the Federation team and help our children develop their learning skills and talents in our very unique environment.

The Orion moved to its brand new “state of the art” building only 4 years ago and now both schools share the Gold Star Centre. It really is a very special learning space - we even have a recording studio, dance studio, (Go Shine Radio and Go Shine Recordings) a theatre and sports centre! This September, we have key posts for inspiring, dynamic and ambitious teachers. Our Federation of two wonderful schools is where teachers make a real difference to the lives of the children in our North London community! Are you an ambitious teacher setting out on a new career or do you want to join us as a successful teacher ready for new horizons? (There are TLRs available too). It is a very exciting time to be a teacher at Orion and Goldbeaters as we continue to expand and push the boundaries of what is possible for primary-aged pupils.

We can offer:

  • Children with great attitudes and who are really keen to learn

  • Start-up packages for NQTs commencing in July

  • A well organised and well-led staff team

  • The opportunity for an excellent and successful career path

  • A very special learning set up - the unique Gold Star Federation

  • Helpful guidance from our teacher coaches on “I Shine Learning” - our own positive learning method (it’s fun)

The Goldbeaters and Orion Staff
