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.
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 teachers to be outstanding and so offer unrivalled professional development and support. This includes a CPD session every week (including opportunities to regularly visit other schools for newly qualified teachers) and a thriving in house Lead Practitioner team that coach and support staff across the Academy. Through the Chelsea Academy Way for Learning we have a simple, flexible and consistent way of developing outstanding teaching. Most of our senior and middle leaders started as teachers with us and have developed into highly talented practitioners. We offer internal and external training through NPQML, NPQSL and Teaching Leaders - your professional development is important to us. 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.
We are a diverse inner city, science specialist academy based just off the King’s Road in Chelsea and are co-sponsored by both the London Diocesan Board for Schools and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Chelsea Academy combines traditional educational values and high academic and behaviour standards with an innovative approach to learning and teaching. The Academy’s specialism is the sciences, and as such we have strong links with local organisations such as Imperial College, The Science Museum and Chelsea Physic Garden. As a Church of England sponsored academy we welcome staff, students and parents from all faiths but expect all employees to have regard for our Christian values that are demonstrated through the taught and non-taught curriculum.
