Our aim is to establish a culture of excellence throughout every element of our academy and move us from Good to Outstanding.

Just 30 minutes by train from Central London, The Highcrest Academy is the first All Ability Academy in in the county of Buckinghamshire.  It is culturally diverse and a vibrant school making it a fantastic place to teach. We have some students who will need all your support and yet we also featured in the national Ofsted report (2016) for providing challenge to the most able. Does this enthuse you?  

There are approximately 950 students on roll, which includes the Sixth Form.  A new building programme, just completed, comprises a brand new Sixth Form Centre, sports facilities including a gym and a new restaurant and coffee shop for both students and staff.

We seek an inspirational teacher to take our successful Mathematics department to its next stage of development. We believe that our Heads of Department have a pivotal role in inspiring and challenging pupils of every ability in every year to raise their academic standards, in promoting their confidence and self-esteem, and in securing year on year improving GCSE and post-16 results.

You will join a leading department, accommodated in one of our newer buildings, that produces exceptional outcomes in a heavily oversubscribed academy. The department is staffed with experienced teachers with a shared vision and commitment to continuous school improvement.

Highcrest offers an innovative and extensive CPD package.  No matter what your experience, we will help you develop into the teacher you aspire to be.

“I’d definitely say our INSET and CPD programme/sessions are far better than anything I’ve seen or heard of from other schools.”  ... Head of Art

We also have a thriving House system that brings our whole school community together.

“The growing house system encourages competition between not only students but also staff, which creates a real community feeling, making it an enjoyable place to work.” ... Head of Humanities

If you are passionate about education and want to really make a difference to the lives of young people then The Highcrest Academy could be the school for you; a thriving school in the heart of the community, with free on-site parking, staff recognition schemes and free gym to counter the “Friday Biscuits” and on-site coffee shop!
