Harris Academy Bermondsey is a girls' school in the heart of London with drive and ambition. Ofsted rated us as Outstanding in every category, March 2015, and we are passionate about making a difference to the lives of our young women, ensuring that they have every opportunity to succeed by identifying and nurturing each one's individual talents. Our uncompromising but caring approach to education has put us as one of the highest performing schools nationally for student progress and has led to GCSE results that are above the national average.

We are looking for an exceptional teacher with ambitions for senior leadership to act as Head of our Mathematics and Computing Faculty.

The successful candidate will initially act as Head of Faculty during the current postholder’s maternity leave. Following the maternity leave cover, you will retain some responsibility within the Faculty, as well as acquiring a whole school role as preparation for senior leadership. The precise nature of this will be agreed at interview.

HAB is an exceptional place to work. We are a happy and successful girls' school in the heart of central London, rated Outstanding in every category by Ofsted.

Our uncompromising but caring approach to education has put us in the top 2% of schools nationally for student progress and has led to GCSE results that are above the national average. This is even though higher than national averages of our girls are eligible for free school meals, have just arrived in the UK or have been categorised as low ability before they come to us.

If you are interested in this post, you should have:

  • A passion for Mathematics and Computing and the ability to inspire this in HAB girls
  • A track record of outstanding results for your students
  • A commitment to coaching other teachers and using evidence-based practice

If you have these qualities and you want to work in an Outstanding school that provides academic excellence and world class opportunities to local girls from all backgrounds, then you should apply to work at HAB.
