Our aim is to establish a culture of excellence throughout every element of our academy and move us from Good to Outstanding.
As a Cover Supervisor, you will have a strong classroom presence and experience of working with young people in a teaching or non-teaching capacity. You will cover for absent colleagues, taking an active role in teaching the work set, engaging with students and upholding the academy’s high expectations.
No two days will be the same. You will be required to undertake admin and other support duties as directed when not providing cover. You will receive strong support from a “Flagship” inclusion school and will participate in all aspects of life at the academy.
Just 30 minutes by train from Central London, The Highcrest Academy is the first All Ability Academy in the county of Buckinghamshire. It is culturally diverse and a vibrant school making it a fantastic place to work. 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 1,000 students on roll, which includes the Sixth Form. A new building programme, just completed, comprises a brand new Sixth Form Centre, sports facilities including a gym and a new restaurant and coffee shop for both students and staff. In addition, we are currently able to offer on-site shared accommodation.
Highcrest offers an innovative and extensive CPD package. No matter what your experience, we will help you develop into the teacher you aspire to be. We are also a School-Centred Initial Teacher Training establishment.
“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 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 a team player, passionate about education and social mobility 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 free gym to counter the “Friday Biscuits” and on-site coffee shop!
