We encourage you to read our website very carefully and familiarise yourself with our 2014 Ofsted report, our prospectus, candidate information pack and application form for the post. What will be clear to you is that you are applying to an extremely successful school and one with a decidedly clear ethos of achievement. We moved, in November 2012, into a brand new £80 million school. The school became an Academy in September 2013 and was recognised by the Department for Education as a Teaching School in 2015. The government’s analysis of examination results has placed the school’s performance in the top 5% of schools nationally over the last decade. The school is committed to developing its teachers and to fostering the development of outstanding teaching. It is a personalised community, committed to creating careers for people. We are experienced in supporting NQTs and indeed enjoy this aspect of staff development but we have had equal success in fostering the careers of colleagues who join having taught in other schools or who have had other careers.   Teachers appointed on the mainscale receive, in addition to their salary, the Holland Park School Allowance.

Teachers provide outstanding History teaching. There are generous resources and all teachers have their own classroom which includes a range of interactive technology. History colleagues benefit from the participation in the Prince’s Teaching Institute and their professional development is supported by two members of the Leadership a Team, including a Deputy Head.  The central place of the subject in the school’s curriculum is in no doubt: the school’s ethos embraces the need for understanding lives that have gone before in order to understand our own, and a central part of the school’s PSCHE provision and assembly content promotes engagement in the subject. Trips each year enrich the curriculum (the battlefields and Berlin are popular destinations) and extra-curricular history, including a student-led history society is thriving. History is popular with students for GCSE and there is significant take up at A-level. At GCSE, students study History in vertical teaching groups comprising of students in Years 9, 10 and 11. This is common practice across all GCSE option subjects and it is enormously successful.   

An application form that should be completed electronically is available from the school’s website: http://www.hollandparkschool.co.uk/vacancies/train-and-teach-with-us. Early application is encouraged as we will seek to interview and appoint on receipt. The closing date for applications is Monday 22nd April 2019.
