Ada Lovelace Church of England High School is a new 6FE local comprehensive school for pupils aged 11-18.  The school opened in September 2018 and currently has a smaller intake (of 125 Year 7 students) for its first two years whilst co-located at William Perkin CE High School in Greenford.  This figure increases to 196 students per year group when the school moves to its permanent site in Ealing, and the school will have 1,330 students when full.  William Perkin, an Ofsted Outstanding school, is one of four Twyford Trust schools, and the new post-holder will be joining us at a time of growth; the organisation therefore offers exciting development opportunities and good promotion prospects for motivated and energetic teachers who support the ethos of the Trust.

As language specialism schools, Ada Lovelace and William Perkin place languages as central to their curriculum.  All students have languages every day and languages is compulsory at GCSE which means that the students make excellent progress.  The new post-holder will be supported by a successful team – William Perkin’s first set of GCSE this year were outstanding, the school as a whole came 8th in the country for Progress 8, and the language department was no exception, coming comfortably in the top 5% of similar schools nationally (Fisher Family Trust data).  Out of 174 entries with a mixed ability cohort, 40% of our students achieved Grade 7 and above; 65% achieved grade 5 and above and 78% achieved grade 4 and above – well above national averages.
