“The school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development and welfare is outstanding” OFSTED 2016  

We are seeking to appoint a motivated and ambitious History Teacher to join our popular and oversubscribed STEM specialist academy. The ability to teach a second humanities subject would be a strong advantage. Applications are welcomed from both experienced and newly qualified teachers.  

The Humanities department is currently at an exciting stage of development, we are collaborative and a bustling place to work in.  As the Academy moves into its fifth year our first cohort of GCSE students are now in Year 10 and we anticipate a strong set of results in 2017. Last year saw the department achieve 86% A*-C at A Level. We are lucky that our humanities students receive academic mentoring from UCL undergraduates and our courses are enriched by lectures, seminars and master classes. These links mean that all students have regular encounters with academic excellence in Humanities.  

Proudly rated Good by Ofsted in all 4 categories in June 2016, The UCL Academy is a mixed 11-19 Academy in the heart of the London Borough of Camden. Priding ourselves on high academic aspirations, the Academy is celebrating another exceptionally successful year of A-level results, with our students securing places at some of Britain’s most prestigious universities including our sponsor UCL. Additionally, as expected, our pioneering cohort of students have performed extremely well in the Academy’s first ever set of GCSE exams in 2017; the core subjects students have performed well above national average.   

Our sponsor University College London provides a range of exciting academic opportunities and exposure to university life for pupils. We offer iconic state-of-the-art facilities and the opportunity to work with the latest innovations in classroom technology. 

 We Offer  

• State-of-the-art classroom technology – including Superstudios, subject specialism suites and demonstration theatres for interactive teaching  talks by visiting academics from UCL
