Rare Opportunity for a new leader to have a truly transformational effect in a school on an exciting journey of improvement        

Are you ready to give countless young people the same chances and experiences that your schooling gave you; one that inspired you to get into teaching and one that will give you the opportunity to have a transformational effect on a school and community that has known sustained under-performance? If so, we need your help.

We want somebody who is looking to make a real difference. As a leader, someone who has a ‘roll up your sleeves’ attitude to work. As a teacher, someone who embraces and enjoys working in challenging circumstances. And we need someone who will champion our passionate vision about helping our students strive for a culture where hope, aspiration and ambition is not a thing of the past, but a reflection of their future adult lives. 

If you apply for this post, you must already be a dynamic, innovative teacher who will inspire, motivate and challenge. Above all, you will be passionate about science and be ready to help our students feel the same way. As a Lead Practitioner in our school you will play a vital role in securing great teaching for every child within your specialist curricular area and across the school.

In return, we will invest heavily in helping you to develop your career aspirations into reality. We can offer you a great salary, the chance to be part of a group of schools where you can develop, excel and flourish; with career progression unrivalled by any other MAT. However, most of all, we can offer you a school that is totally focused on ensuring that every child is supported and challenged to deliver outstanding personal progress. 

We will offer you the support of a leadership team dedicated to helping young people striving for more and as a GLF Schools’ employee, you will enjoy the benefit of working within an excellent support and learning network and will be exposed to significant collaboration opportunities across our schools. 

Ultimately, though, we can guarantee you the ultimate teaching project, one that on reflection, you can look back and are proud to say YOU were a part of.

If you think you could help, we would love to hear from you. Contact our recruitment team by calling 020-8716-4987.

We would strongly recommend that you let us arrange a visit for you to visit the school to see for yourself why this is such a special opportunity.
