A Bolder Future Awaits

A superb opportunity to join a growing school with supportive and friendly staff.  In September 2021 we will be in our brand new purpose built accommodation with fantastic facilities and extensive outside grounds.  The school will also have grown to 4 years groups (Years 7 to 10).  We are looking for a strong, committed and enthusiastic Head of Design Technology to start in September 2021. The person we are looking for has to able to teach and lead the full breadth of the revised D&T GCSE qualification and must be capable of supporting and building an expansive, engaging and exciting KS3/KS4 Curriculum offer. They must have D&TA accredited workshop safety certification or be willing to train to achieve the relevant H&S qualifications.  We are very excited about this new future and would like you to be part of it.

Bolder Academy opened in September 2018 and now have Year 7s, Year 8s and Year 9s within the Academy. We are a mixed, non-denominational school.

The Academy has been set up by primary and secondary Headteachers from the London Borough of Hounslow to meet the demand for extra school places. We are already part of the community.

Extraordinary partnerships have been formed with key local businesses such as Sky resulting in a ‘bold’ education: a traditional, highly academic curriculum combined with brilliant extra-curricular opportunities.

Starting with year 7, we know every Bolder student and their family exceptionally well, strong relationships and great communication is the Bolder way.

The opportunities to be part of the Academy’s history and to develop a school that truly stands apart are significant: shaping the curriculum, sparking enthusiasm and excitement for learning. A perfect career move!

You will be passionate about teaching Design  Technology and, have a willingness to teach outside of your subject in the opening years of the Academy.

Bolder Academy offers our students and our staff to shine brighter, to be bolder.

Closing date:   9 am on 4 March 2021
