We are seeking to appoint a dynamic, motivated and hardworking Teacher of Business, for a period of Maternity Cover from November 2019, to join our dedicated Business faculty in engaging and encouraging our students to achieve their full potential in this subject.

The successful candidate will inspire our young people to learn, contribute and thoroughly enjoy school life whilst raising attainment, achievement and progress within the subject. Applicants should possess excellent communication and interpersonal skills, be extremely focused, driven and willing to contribute to the wide and varied extra-curricular programme offered at the school. This is a fantastic opportunity for an energetic, ambitious teacher with excellent subject knowledge to join us at OSA.

Prospective candidates are encouraged to arrange a visit to the school and submit their application as soon as possible as we reserve the right to close the advert should we feel able to appoint an appropriate candidate.


OSA is a vibrant, welcoming, co-educational secondary academy with a committed, professional and hardworking team of staff and governors. With a clear vision of Opportunity, Success and Ambition, the school aims to create opportunities through excellent teaching and an inspiring enrichment programme, so that all students can enjoy success, both socially and academically.

This is an exciting time in the history of the school as we are set to begin a significant multi-million pound refurbishment programme that will transform the learning environment for the whole school community. With the appointment of a new Headteacher in September 2018, this is an outstanding opportunity to join a friendly, supportive and dedicated team and play a key role in the school’s development.

We have strong links with the community, including membership of a post-16 consortium of five local secondary schools, allowing us to provide an outstanding, fully comprehensive programme of education and opportunities for
our Sixth Form students.

Hatfield is easily accessible by both road and rail, with the A1(M), M1 and M25 motorways nearby, and the Hatfield train station less than 10 minutes’ walk from the school. The academy is an equal opportunities employer and is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. All post holders are subject to a satisfactory Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. Applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the DBS.
