This is a fantastic opportunity for an enthusiastic and well-qualified English colleague to join our Leading Edge school. The current whole school Progress 8 measure is in the top 14% nationally and our students make excellent progress across the board.
Boys at Isleworth & Syon School buck the national gender trends for success in English. Our progress measures at GCSE (compared to boys and girls) are top 5% for English Language and top 14% for English Literature. Many students continue their studies at Advanced Level, where girls join our highly successful Sixth Form.
We wish to appoint a colleague who has the desire to work in a supportive and invigorating environment in which staff are passionate about delivering a creative and engaging English curriculum. You will be joining an already outstanding team of practitioners and can be safe in the knowledge that your subject is highly valued and supported.

The school is in a period of growth and a new 20-room teaching block, which will house the English department, is due before September 2018.
We are an over-subscribed and popular boys’ school with a mixed Sixth Form. We are situated in a tree-lined neighbourhood of the London Borough of Hounslow, a vibrant area of West London. We are close to Osterley Park, a short hop from central London by tube or rail, and have easy access to the M3, M4 and Heathrow Airport.
