“Staff are proud of the work they do. Building on the long-standing traditions of the school, staff support the development of ‘courteous, respectful and calm’ young men, reflecting the school’s well-established values.”
[Ofsted Report – February 2017]
We wish to appoint a colleague to contribute to the continuing success of our students and who has the desire to work in an outstanding science department in a Leading Edge school.
We have a history of excellence and are a high-performing school. Our Progress 8 measure is significantly above that for boys nationally, and science is, and has been, consistently in the top 10% of all schools for many years. At GCSE, students make excellent progress in all measures and the separate sciences and applied science courses are extremely popular in our Sixth Form. Girls join our highly successful Sixth Form and many students further their studies at university. Our outstanding post-16 ‘Medic Club’ is available for the highest performing and supports the varied progression routes.
Across the school, students benefit from our insistence on: high standards and achievement, an exceptional range of extra-curricular activities and the focus on traditional values. The school is in a period of growth, hence the need for this post and for the recent site developments that have seen five new science laboratories being installed. We are looking for a colleague that aspires to be part of a great team of staff and who will enjoy learning about the ‘Isleworth & Syon Way’, our unique strategy of ensuring success for all students.
We are an extremely popular boys’ school with a mixed Sixth Form, situated in a tree-lined neighbourhood of Isleworth, a vibrant area of West London. Close to Osterley Park and a short hop from central London by tube or rail, there is easy access to the M3, M4 and Heathrow Airport.

• A full, bespoke induction programme
• On-going professional development with an individual CPD allowance
• State of the art touchscreen classroom technology and a laptop
• The opportunity to work with dynamic, innovative and supportive colleagues
• The opportunity to work with students that exhibit “outstanding” student behaviour
• The opportunity to work with a range of leading external partnerships
• A chef-led canteen service
• Access to schemes such as: childcare vouchers; cycle to work and free flu jabs.
