We are looking to appoint an energetic and committed professional, with successful middle leadership experience, to the role of Head of Curriculum Assessment and Organisation + Line Management of Science at Ada Lovelace Church of England High School - a new 6FE local comprehensive school for pupils aged 11-18.  Ada Lovelace is the fourth school to be developed by the Twyford Trust which has a very strong reputation locally for exceptional standards and creative curriculum development.  The school opened in September 2018 and for its first two years is co-located at William Perkin CE High School in Greenford.  The first year of the school has been very successful and the students have benefitted from the outstanding standards at William Perkin, which was ranked 8th in the country on its first GCSE results in the summer of 2018.  Ada Lovelace students are currently fully integrated into William Perkin teaching groups, however in 2019-20 will have a separate teaching block which will start the process of separation, ahead of the move to the new site from September 2020. 

The role has been designed as a training role for a Science specialist who seeks to develop their expertise in whole school assessment & curriculum organisation.  In 2019-20, while Ada Lovelace remains at William Perkin school, there will be opportunity to train under the supervision of the Deputy Head & Trust Assessment Lead in order to understand the systems for setting in core and elective subjects and to share responsibility for school organisation in these areas.

The successful candidate will be trained in the use of the Trust assessment system, including the Go4Schools software, and will have responsibility for the training and support of Head of Department / Post holders in both schools.  The new post-holder will work with the Deputy Head Pastoral and Assistant Head to set up the school VLE (cloned from the Trust system known as ‘Copia’) for Ada Lovelace in readiness for a full launch in September 2020.
