If you want to be the best, then you should probably join us

The City Academy, Hackney is one of only seven schools in the country to have a Progress 8 score above 1 for 2016. In each of the three years the academy has sat GCSE exams, students have made exceptional progress and made the best progress of any co-educational school in the country in 2014. That is great news for our students, the academy and our community, but there is so much more that we know can be achieved, and you can help.

We have a relentless ambition to deliver continuing success to the young people we serve. Our approach is based on very simple principles: clear systems and extremely high expectations. We focus on the development of our students, their values and ultimately their academic success. We maximise the impact of teaching by providing clear leadership, minimising bureaucracy and providing effective support that have tangible results on the quality of teaching and outcomes for our students.

The Role

This exciting and challenging post requires an enthusiastic, hardworking, conscientious and energetic individual, who has experience of a high expectation environment, preferably in an outstanding sixth form.

You will need to be ambitious, innovative and dynamic. You will also need to have the ability and tenacity to ensure that students achieve our ambitious goals. 

The priorities of the role are to lead on:

  • Providing professional leadership and management of the sixth form facility 
  • Assisting the Principal and Assistant Principals in the overall management and      development of A Levels and the academy sixth form provision as a whole
  • Ensuring high-quality teaching and learning is delivered to all students
  • Developing systems and procedures to efficiently challenge underachieving students
  • Developing meaningful partnership with parents/carers and local schools

This is a fantastic opportunity for you to lead a high status sixth form. If you think you can transform the post-16 opportunities for the community we serve, then we would like to hear from you.
