This is an exciting opportunity to join the first All Ability Academy in Bucks. Currently there are approximately 880 pupils, including a vibrant Sixth Form, and the academy’s popularity means that the number is increasing each year. This post offers the chance to become involved in the running of a culturally diverse and forward-thinking school, rated Good by Ofsted in 2016.
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 National Curriculum GCSE and post-16 results. You will achieve this by leading fellow professionals, by example, supporting and sharing good practice. You will co-ordinate planning and assessment and implement innovative and effective teaching and learning strategies in the classroom.
You will join a leading department that produces exceptional outcomes in a heavily oversubscribed academy. The department is staffed with experienced teachers with a commitment to continuous school improvement and has a suite of dedicated Science laboratories.
