Ark Academy is an all-through school in a state-of-the-art building in Wembley, recently rated as one of the top 100 non-selective state schools for value- added KS2-4 in England. The school opened in 2008 and has grown year on year with each new intake of students and our first cohort of sixth formers started this year.
It’s an exciting time to join us: our staff are striving to create and maintain our outstanding reputation, and our school is growing year on year. We offer our staff numerous opportunities to advance and learn, including whole school training sessions once a week – led by a member of our SLT and middle leaders and support for teachers seeking their NPQML or in taking part in the “good to outstanding” programme that we run.
When you join us, you’ll also spend more of your time teaching, and less time dealing with behaviour problems. We’re well known for the success of our behaviour policies, which treat student behaviour not as the responsibility of individual teachers, but of the entire school. Students know what is expected of them, and when there is an issue, we have an on-call rota of SLT members to help out.
We are now seeking to appoint a Head of History who is committed to driving standards and ensuring every child is challenged to achieve their maximum potential. As the head of department, you will develop and lead an exciting curriculum which enables the highest level of pupil progress and attainment. This is a great opportunity for motivated teachers looking for career development and their next challenge.
The ideal candidate will be:
· be an outstanding practitioner, with an unwavering commitment to the highest standards for teaching and learning
· have excellent leadership and management skills
· have a proven track record of raising attainment in a challenging classroom environment
· have a resilient character and a strong personal drive
· understand the difference that a great education can make to pupils – especially to those from disadvantaged backgrounds.
