We seek to appoint an enthusiastic and motivated Head of Year who is passionate about the pastoral and academic well-being of young people to join our dynamic and growing school.   

In this key role you will professionally lead, manage, develop, support and be accountable for the Year 7 team of staff and students in order to ensure the highest possible standards of achievement, progress, personal development and well-being.  You will be excited by supporting and developing systems which actively raise student achievement and progress, and can demonstrate the ability to build very strong links with home, school and other key workers.  You will have a key role in the community; building on strong relationships with our feeder primary schools to ensure that every student starts their time at Bow from a firm platform of good communication and understanding of their primary schooling.

The diversity of the school community ensures that Bow is a vibrant and interesting place to work.  The successful candidates will demonstrate consistent high standards of teaching and excellent classroom management skills.

We Offer  

• An established and comprehensive mentor programme  

• A strong personalised programme of professional development and coaching for teachers and support staff 

• Strong links with other local schools for partnership working and support 

• A strong community spirit  

• Staff who are very supportive towards each other with a great camaraderie existing throughout the school
