Who we are

Southfields Academy was a stand-alone converter academy situated in South West London on the Southfields - Earlsfield border and in 2018 founded the Southfields Multi-Academy Trust with its partner Linden Lodge School.  

The Academy is the modern incarnation of Southfields School which was founded in 1949. The school was founded on the principles of providing a truly comprehensive education for local children encompassing the very best in academic rigour and the provision of outstanding opportunities in applied learning and vocational subjects.  These principles are still the driving force of the academy. To read more about the history of Southfields Academy visit our website.

The Academy has the highest expectations of achievement and behaviour and offers a nurturing and supportive environment where it celebrates difference and ensures that everyone, students and staff, meets their full potential. The Academy values every individual and commits to ensuring everyone feels supported and listened to.

The Academy has a positive "can do" attitude, believing that the sky is its limit, and it thinks creatively and innovatively to meet the needs of its learners and the community.  The Academy's examination results and student destinations are a testament to this.

Professional Development

As one of the first 100 National Teaching Schools, most recently, and as a Training School of nearly 20 years standing, with a National Leader of Education as Principal and being a designated National Support School, the Academy has a tradition of innovation and thought leadership on education and pedagogy.  The opportunity for teachers to not only make an impact on their own practice but that of colleagues across the profession is key to this success.

All teachers have professional development opportunities, designed for their career point, and department meetings are more often than not given over to the development and refining of practice rather than housekeeping.

Newly Qualified Teachers benefit from a programme led by members of the Senior Leadership Team, there is an Early Professional Development Programme for second year teachers and through leadership opportunities across the Academy there is a culture of pushing those aspiring middle and senior leaders to reach their goal.

The Academy has supported many staff through Masters and PhD studies at university and has a tradition of growing its own future middle and senior leaders.

Staff benefits

In addition to competitive salaries, subscription to the Teachers' Pension Scheme and for Support Staff the Local Government Pension Scheme, Southfields Academy has a great deal to offer those that work there.  

Staff are automatically enrolled as members of the Aspire Centre which is the Academy's onsite sports centre and adult learning facility.  Staff can use the fitness suite and the swimming pool during supervised sessions before the school day begins and on some nights after school.

Staff are provided with tea and coffee during break time and there is a designated staff counter in the dining room at which staff can purchase hot food, salads, sandwiches and soup at cost price during the school day.

The Academy has a private day nursery on site at which staff can enrol their children and at which a discount is available for Academy staff.  Subject to the position and to negotiation with the Principal part time working is supported at all levels.
