School seeks teacher who wants to have fun!

Yes really! A job pays the bills but a good work place feeds the soul. 

We are looking for a teacher who is up for a new challenge. Grove Academy can offer you unique experiences, a new challenge and hopefully fun. We can also offer you exciting professional development that you cannot get anywhere else. 

Grove Academy is a new free school which opened in September 2017 and is the first all-through school to open in Slough, providing seamless high quality education for 4 to 18 year olds. We opened with classes in Reception, Years 1, 2, 3 and 7 and will grow each year to a full capacity of 1,940 including 6th form. We are looking for new staff to join us for our second year as we expand to teach in Year 1 or 2.  

Our project based curriculum is developing via enquiry and ‘big questions’ and enables all pupils to place their learning within a real life context with concrete experiences. We are working closely with local businesses and organisations to ensure that our pupils leave Grove Academy with the skills and character that employers seek. You could help us develop that curriculum, creating exciting experiences and happy memories for our pupils.

What can we offer you?

  • A place where you will feel valued for your hard work
  • Experiences you cannot get anywhere else
  • Innovative CPD packages because we want to invest in you 
  • A chance to blur the lines and learn from the best practices in EYFS, primary and secondary phases 
  • We want to learn from others and research, so providing networking opportunities for staff at all levels is important to us. 
  • As the school grows so will the leadership pathways available to suitable candidates      because our philosophy is to ‘grow our own’ where possible 

We are looking for a teacher who:

  • Has the imagination to help develop our project based learning curriculum. 
  • Is excited by the chance to be with us at the beginning of this amazing journey.
  • Recognises they need to be flexible as the school grows and in turn we will provide      experiences they cannot get anywhere else. 
  • Who can also make learning fun!

Can you think outside of the box and see this as a fantastic opportunity to help us create a magical curriculum? If so …. Grove Academy is the place for you!
