This is an excellent opportunity to join our highly successful school. We are seeking a geography or history specialist who will join a talented team and who will quickly be able to contribute to our continuing success.
We have a history of excellence at school, with the current whole school Progress 8 measure being in the top 14% nationally. Geography (top 15%) and history (top 11%) are both highly successful and popular subjects and both have a good take-up in the Sixth Form. Girls join our highly successful Sixth Form. Standards at A-Level are graded highly and many students further their studies at university.
The ability to contribute to the ethos of the school, whilst maintaining our high expectations, will be vital for the successful candidate. Professional development at the school is outstanding and all staff are supported in their own professional ambitions.
Across the school, students benefit from our insistence on: high standards and achievement; an exceptional range of additional opportunities; the focus on traditional values; and an innovative learning environment. Boys significantly out-perform boys locally and nationally. Results exceed national benchmarks for all students. We are committed to providing an excellent learning environment in which students can thrive and where all staff can develop professionally, through continual training and development, in our outward-looking school. The school is in a period of growth and a new £7 million teaching block is being built to accommodate this expansion and will open in 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, and have easy access to Heathrow Airport.
This post is permanent and will suit an experienced or aspirational colleague wishing to progress their career.

Closing date: 09:00 – Monday 19 March 2018.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
