We are seeking to appoint an innovative, inspiring and well qualified Head of Year with leadership and interpersonal skills of the highest order and who is committed to maintaining a consistently high standard of pastoral care and student wellbeing. We are looking for a confident and strategically minded individual with excellent interpersonal and communication skills to assist in the overall management and development of a year group.

This role is available for qualified teachers (especially those that can offer maths or science) and professionals that have experience in schools but do not hold QTS. We would expect any unqualified teacher to have significant experience working in secondary education and this should be demonstrated through the application form and will be tested at interview.

We are currently graded outstanding by Ofsted and SIAMS, a World Class School and are a member of the Leading Edge network. In the summer we achieved our best ever GCSE and A level results in terms of both progress (top 10% nationally) and attainment. However, we are much more than a successful, academically focused school. We believe in educating the whole child and our Christian values of joy, perseverance, servant leadership, charity and forgiveness underpin everything we stand for. It is important that all of our staff, whether they are teachers or not, work closely with our young people and ensure that they are successful in all that they do. We are looking for staff who will always go the extra mile for our young people and believe that education happens both in and out of the classroom.

Chelsea Academy is a great place to work (we are one of the few schools in the country with Investors in People Gold), our staff are friendly and supportive and we offer a whole range of professional development opportunities no matter what stage you are at in your career. We want all of our staff to be outstanding and so offer unrivalled professional development and support. This includes a CPD session every week and access to a library of online courses besides bespoke training available for individual roles to carry out their responsibilities. Pastoral training is also available to help staff mentor students as Learning Coaches. Academy staff have access to a wide range of benefits these include a private healthcare package, 24 hour GP service, physiotherapy and a confidential well-being support line as well as a laptop and free lunch.
