HEAD OF YEAR MPS/UPS (Outer London) + TLR 2.3 

Start Date: September 2017  

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and well qualified Head of Year.  The ability to offer either Geography, Science, Maths or English would be an advantage.  Pastoral care, combined with academic support to enable students to achieve their potential is central to our ethos.  The post would ideally suit an individual with student welfare at the centre of their everyday practice and who is keen to progress and develop professionally.   

At Coombe, each boy is a member of a house within the school and this allegiance is central to the Coombe experience. This dimension brings a special sense of ‘family’ that is such a positive characteristic of our school. It also adds thriving competition and team-working, enabling boys to develop leadership skills and to learn from their older, aspirational peers as they strive together for the good of the house.  

Coombe Boys’ is a popular and highly successful non-selective 11 – 18 school that is federated with its partner girls’ school to comprise the Coombe Secondary Schools Academies Trust, based in New Malden, Surrey.  Coombe Boys’ has approximately 800 students on roll, including a mixed sixth form. 

Results at GCSE and in the Sixth Form are significantly above national averages and the School was graded Good with Outstanding Leadership & Management in its most recent Ofsted inspection (December 2013).   

The school is proud to be innovative and forward-thinking as well as being an active member of the Independent State School Partnership with King’s College School, Wimbledon.  We strongly believe in supporting staff to develop professionally and our partnerships enable us to provide a wide range of opportunities for career development.
