If you want to be the best, then you should probably join us
Students in the academy routinely make more progress than almost any other school Progress 8 is consistently above 1.00 which indicates that students achieve a grade better for each of their best 8 GCSE’s compared to the average. In 2018 the progress 8 score was 1.07. That is great news for our students, the academy and our community, but there is so much more that we know can be achieved and you can help.
We have a relentless ambition to deliver continuing success to the young people we serve. Our approach is based on very simple principles: clear systems and extremely high expectations. We focus on the development of our students, their values and ultimately their academic success. We maximise the impact of teaching by providing clear leadership, minimising bureaucracy and effective support that have tangible results on the quality of teaching and outcomes for our students.
You will be working with the Subject Leader Science and will play a leading role in developing science teaching for students in the academy. This exciting and challenging post requires an enthusiastic, hardworking, conscientious and energetic individual, teaching science with the ability to teach up to and including A level.
As a Deputy Subject Leader, you can be part of a team which enforces high standards of behaviour and pushes students to achieve their very best in the subject. Your duties will include:
• Assisting the Subject Leader in leading the science faculty.
• Ensuring high quality teaching and learning is delivered to all students.
• Assisting the Subject Leader in developing systems and procedures to efficiently challenge underachieving students.
• Developing meaningful partnerships with parents/carers and local primary schools.
This is a fantastic opportunity for you to shape the lives of young people in Hackney. If you think you can help transform the opportunities for the community we serve then we would like to hear from you.
