Saracens High School is a new secondary school which opened in September 2018 for 156 Year 7 pupils, growing each year until the school is full in 2024. The school is located in the Colindale area of North London. 

We are seeking an inspirational teacher to lead our pastoral provision as Year Lead for our second cohort. You will be helping to create a distinctive culture and philosophy so that from the moment someone enters the school, they will know this is where the learner is empowered to “be the best that they can possibly be”. The individual abilities of each pupil are recognised and coaching for life skills as well as academic excellence is at the core of all that we do. All we do is underpinned by the Saracens' values of Discipline, Hard work, Honesty, and Humility, and we pride ourselves on every member of staff knowing every pupil.

You will play a significant roll in setting the ethos and expectations for the year group, through leading a team of twelve Learning Coaches. Our Learning Groups are made up of just thirteen children, which allows the Learning Coaches to develop strong relationships with pupils and their families. 

The successful candidate will possess excellent interpersonal skills, to establish constructive relationships with staff, parents and pupils, and become actively involved in activities both within our school and externally. You will work with all members of staff, including the SEND team and external agencies, providing the pastoral support that pupils need to flourish. You will lead assemblies and celebrations of success, as well as  monitor pupil progress, attendance, and punctuality, and intervene as required to ensure excellent outcomes.

The reality of working in a new school is that roles develop significantly as the school expands, providing the opportunity for the right candidate to develop their career over the coming years.
