A “fresh start” school now firmly “Good” – join our team on the way to outstanding.

“The growing house system encourages competition between not only students but also staff, which creates a real community feeling, making it an enjoyable place to work.” ... Head of Humanities

“I’d definitely say our INSET and CPD programme/sessions are far better than anything I’ve seen or heard of from other schools.” ... Head of Art

Ofsted recognised our truly innovative approach to delivering personalised CPD. Inspired by Harry Beck’s London Underground Tube map, our staff (passengers), choose their destination, the lines they wish to travel, and the stops they want to get off at. Many staff are also drivers sharing their expertise with colleagues.

Can you bring industry and business to life within the classroom? We have strong and established links with local industry to enthuse our students about the global business environment. Come and be part of it!

We are seeking to appoint an excellent Business Teacher to join our Business/Computing department. Committed to raising attainment, you will have the ability to motivate our students to succeed to the highest levels. 

Business Studies courses are offered within the Business and Computing department. There is an experienced Head of Department who leads a team of committed and established specialists. The school offers both GCSE and BTEC Business courses, and has a strong Sixth Form Business Studies programme. The number of Sixth Form students taking the subject has grown year on year. We have an established Young Enterprise Club as well as the Business and Computing lunchtime club.

If you are passionate about your subject and want to really make a difference in the lives of young people then The Highcrest Academy could be the school for you; a thriving school in the heart of the community with free on-site parking and “Friday Biscuits”!

Just 30 minutes by train from Central London, The Highcrest Academy is the first All Ability Academy in in the county of Buckinghamshire. It is culturally diverse and a vibrant school making it a fantastic place to teach. We have some students who will need all your support and yet we also featured in the national Ofsted report (2016) for providing challenge to the most able. Does this enthuse you? There are approximately 950 students on roll, which includes the Sixth Form. A new building programme will begin later this year to increase our Sixth Form, sports and recreational facilities for both students and staff.
