Chiltern Hills Academy invites applications for the opportunity to join the staff of a successful, mixed 11-18 Church of England Academy in the Chiltern Hills, conveniently situated at the end of the London Underground Metropolitan Line. 

We have recently completed a capital build with an investment of £10 million which provides an excellent, well-resourced teaching environment. “Leaders know their school well” our OFSTED inspection recognised (February 2017) and further judged the school to be ‘good’ in all categories. “Staff, pupils and parents fully support the headteacher’s vision and would recommend this school to other parents.” “Pupils have embraced the school’s values and ethos. As a result they behave well in lessons and the school is calm and orderly.”

We are seeking to appoint, from 1 January 2020, an enthusiastic, imaginative and dynamic leader with a proven record of achieving high outcomes and delivering outstanding teaching in themselves and others and able to communicate his or her passion for Design & Technology through innovative, diverse and exciting teaching methods.  

Although we welcome applications from candidates from all disciplines, those with a technology background would be especially desirable.  Essential qualities are:

  • Strong teacher of Design & Technology
  • Knowledge of the BTEC specification (construction)
  • Knowledge of textiles
  • Strong leadership and team-building qualities
  • An outstanding classroom practitioner who is passionate about teaching and learning
  • Aspirations to senior leadership
  • High expectations for student achievement
  • A commitment to raising standards for all

We would be pleased to show prospective applicants around the Academy.  Please contact Mrs Mistry (HR Administrator).  Details of the post are on our website together with an application form.  Please send your application to Mrs Mistry (jmistry@chacademy.co.uk) and include a letter  and CV.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share in this commitment.  All staff appointments are subject to a satisfactory enhanced DBS check.

Closing date for applications: 9.00am, Monday 23 September 2019

Interviews: week commencing 30 September 2019
