Date posted:
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: £22.500
Contract term: Permanent

We are currently looking to appoint a Caretaker from November 2017. This is a role where some of the duties and responsibilities may alter as the school expands and develops. You will enjoy the challenge of developing an outstanding school alongside staff and Governors. 

Hackney New School is an exciting, oversubscribed secondary school, which opened in September 2013. Our aim is to deliver a standard of education that is equal to the very best schools in the country. Our core vision is to provide students with access to the widest range of opportunities in life by fostering academic excellence and instilling self-belief, intellectual curiosity and responsibility towards others in society. Music is at the heart of our school life - every child that joins us learns a musical instrument, there are whole-year choirs, regular concerts, and the majority of students go on to do Music GCSE.

All at HNS share the belief that an outstanding education can be provided to children from a wide range of backgrounds, if they are being challenged in all aspects of their academic and personal development. Students at Hackney New School benefit from an extended school day which includes opportunities for prep and enrichment. We are committed to a knowledge-rich curriculum that enables students to learn in greater depth, and our ‘tough love’ approach ensures that all students are held to the very highest standards of behaviour, politeness, gratitude and respect.

Our successful Ofsted inspection, after only 5 terms, is testament to our current success. We now need additional outstanding teachers and leaders to continue to develop our school.  In September 2015 we moved into our exciting new purpose-built buildings on the Kingsland canal basin.

Hackney New School will inevitably undergo rapid growth and development as we continue to expand. This will lead to subsequent opportunities across the school as additional staff are employed, providing exciting additional areas of responsibility and potential senior leadership posts.

We Offer:

  • Fantastic pupils with enormous potential
  • The opportunity to join a hugely committed staff team who are all central in moulding the ethos of the school
  • A school with a clear vision and a supportive governing board
  • Significant investment in staff development and well-being through weekly CPD, clear pathways to career progression and free counselling support
  • Access to free breakfast and lunches at the school
  • A Cycle to Work scheme and travel card loans for staff
