‘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 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 min 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.  

You will be supervising classes or groups of students during the short-term absence of the class teacher. Under the guidance of teaching/senior staff you will be involved in implementing work programmes, managing student behaviour and assisting students in relevant activities, in line with the Academy’s policies and procedures. 

We are looking for an individual who ideally is a graduate, committed to the ethos of the Academy and who enjoys working with young people. You need to be confident in taking the lead in the classroom, flexible and have a good sense of humour. 

Successful applicants are likely to have previous experience in teaching, learning support in the classroom or youth work, but any suitable background will be considered. 

If you are interested in this post please visit our school website ( where you will find more information together with an online application form. If you would like to arrange a visit to the school, please contact Tara Mackay, PA to Executive Principal and HR Assistant on 01753 214468.
