You have a package of staff training and support with a clear focus on developing and sharing first rate teaching and learning’ (OFSTED November 2017)

IMAGINE walking into school and seeing a dinosaur – or a plane – or a badger. The Langley Academy is not just another school; it is a new way of learning. As the UK’s first museum school The Langley Academy has a museum within the building. Here you are encouraged to use your imagination to create new ways to ignite our students’ desire to learn. 

We are ideally situated, only minutes from the M4 at Junction 5 and the M25, and with excellent rail links to Central London. If you chose to live here, renting is cheaper than in Central London, yet you are in town quickly. Windsor, Marlow or Henley are close and if you enjoy weekend travelling it takes about 15 minutes to Heathrow. We border Buckinghamshire, with no less than 100,000 acres which are designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty – including a substantial part of the magnificently wooded Chiltern Hills. Whether you are into the outdoors or want to be close to London, working here is ideal.

The Langley Academy is seeking to appoint an exceptional practitioner who is innovative, motivated, enthusiastic and able to lead staff in delivering an outstanding Sixth Form experience.

Leadership of the Sixth Form is a high profile position at The Langley Academy and the successful candidate will play a significant role in both strategic and practical leadership of the whole school. Specific responsibilities will also include line management of at least one faculty area.

This post will provide the successful candidate with experience in a range of whole school issues, and will be excellent preparation for future promotion.

The successful candidate will be supported by the Trust to bring their skills, knowledge and experience to support a continuing programme of school improvement.
