Aylward Academy is part of London Academies Enterprise Trust (LAET). Our objective is to provide all students with a first class education. Why? Because we believe that a solid education is vital in today’s world. We recognise that every student has different needs and that it’s our job to meet them. We not only educate students about life, we prepare them for life. Whatever a student’s ambition, we will give them the best possible start.
We are seeking to employ an inspirational Physics teacher to join our successful Science faculty. This role is ideal for those seeking to broaden their experience and has arisen due to restructuring and expansion within the Science Faculty. The Science Faculty was created with the merger of the evolving Technology department with a well-established Science department. The Faculty has been making good progress in pupil attainment over a four year period since the school became an Academy.
You will be joining a dynamic team of committed teachers with 5 Technicians who are dedicated to providing the best possible opportunities to our students. We are a very successful Faculty because we put what is best for our students at the heart of our entire decision making which is why there has been steady progress in pupil attainment.
Physics has been a popular subject at Aylward with 15 students on the AS Physics course this year. There have been great opportunities afforded to our physicists such as the annual residential to CERN and countless STEM opportunities.
The Faculty can boast to having the most state of the art facilities which includes 10 science classrooms, two Technology workshops, two Catering rooms and an ICT suite with Apple macs. All are equipped with the latest Technology such as laser cutters, two 3D printers and scanner and extremely well resourced science laboratories. This reflects the importance the academy sees Science and Technology playing in the development of the Academy’s future success.
The successful candidate will:
- Have strong leadership qualities and a commitment to excellent teaching and learning opportunities for our students
- A leader who can engage a team of colleagues, inspire trust, and implement the right strategies to ensure sustained progress
- Be committed to continuous improvement and development of the faculty
- Have the ability to engage and inspire pupils and build excellent relationships;
- Be committed to Aylward Academy’s ethos;
