Hackney New School is a Free School with a Music specialism, which opened in September 2013.  Our core vision is to provide students with access to the widest range of opportunities in life by fostering academic excellence and instilling self-belief, intellectual curiosity and responsibility towards others in society. Everyone at HNS shares the belief that an outstanding education can be provided to children from a wide range of backgrounds if they are being challenged in all aspects of their academic and personal development. Our successful Ofsted inspection, after only 5 terms, is testament to our current success. We now need additional outstanding staff to continue to develop our school. In September 2015 we moved into our exciting new purpose-built buildings on the Kingsland canal basin, which are conveniently situated for public transport next to Haggerston Overground station and well served by bus routes. Our primary school will move into adjoining premises in 2019.

 The successful candidate will have experience creating and managing a PE curriculum at community sports venues as well as a speciality in Handball. We have limited access to on-site facilities; the successful candidate will be sympathetic to these challenges and proactive in seeking out solutions. This will require a high level of organisation and commitment beyond the school day.

Hackney New School was judged "good" by OFSTED in June 2015. "The rich curriculum is enriched by a wide range of opportunities for pupils to consolidate or expand their learning in the school’s distinctive daily timetable."

Suitable candidates will be interviewed promptly upon receipt of application. The closing date will be brought forward in the event that the post is filled.  

We are an equal opportunities employer and we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We expect staff to share this commitment.  An enhanced DBS check is required for all successful applicants.
