The Federation and Academy

Haberdashers’ Aske’s   Crayford Academy is a very successful 3-18 school, proud to belong to the   Haberdashers’ Aske’s Federation. We offer an exciting and innovative model   for education within the community that we serve, with broad appeal to   parents and pupils alike. 

Offering education across   all key stages which has consistently been judged ‘Good’ by Ofsted, most   recently in December 2014, following our second year of extremely positive   GCSE results we now have students in every year group to year 13 with our   first cohort of A level students taking their examinations in 2017. 

Facilities at the school   are first class; from the building itself to the resources which support the   delivery of a broad curriculum including an extremely popular and well   maintained Learning Resource Centre. Our playing fields, gymnasium, drama   theatre and ICT facilities all contribute to ensuring we deliver an education   for character, a feature of all Haberdashers’ schools that is part of our   DNA.

We take a comprehensive   mix of children and expect nothing less than the highest personal goals for   each pupil. Where pupils are   disadvantaged, we expect them to make rapid progress to catch up with their   peers. Our focus is to ensure each child we teach can read, write and do   mathematics to a good standard in order to be successful in their education   and life. 

Haberdashers’ Aske’s   Crayford Academy is 30 minutes from London Bridge by train and the school’s   proximity to the capital is a strong factor in enabling teachers to enhance   the cultural experience for our pupils through enrichment activities.

The  Role

We are looking   to appoint an outstanding, motivated teacher with a proven track record of   achievement to lead an established department, promoting interest in this   popular and successful subject across the full age range of the school. You   will have specific responsibility for the progress and attainment of students   in History and will oversee curriculum change and development where necessary.

We will expect   you to manage and continue developing a broad, balanced, relevant and   differentiated curriculum for the subject area which is in keeping with the   Academy’s aims for our pupils. There is the opportunity for the successful   candidate to improve the existing standards of student attainment and   achievement through your fresh ideas, motivational skills and keen focus on improvement.   You will join a team of creative, supportive and reflective middle leaders   who play a key role in driving school improvement. 

You will contribute to the overall leadership and management of the school and be   active in promoting its aims, and supporting an ethos that promotes academic   achievement and outstanding teaching and learning.  

The Candidate

We are seeking an outstanding practitioner with an established track record of delivering   outstanding pupil progress in the classes they teach. Some leadership   experience, whether as a 2i/c, or another leadership role within a school   where you have managed a team is preferable but not essential. The successful   candidate will be well qualified with outstanding subject knowledge. The   candidate must be a compelling communicator with an ability to champion the   subject to pupils with a fully comprehensive range of abilities.
