About KAA   

KAA is an 11 – 18 academy situated in the heart of Notting Hill, West London. We opened in brand new buildings in 2014 and our facilities are second to none. We are currently in our fourth year of operation and have 920 students in Years 7, 8, 9, 10, 12 and 13 with us. By September 2018 we will be a full school with all seven year groups.

KAA is a school which has the very highest standards – both in terms of academic teaching and life beyond the classroom. In our first year the Department of Education reported we are “one of the best new academies they had ever seen” in terms of our planning and curriculum. In 2017, Ofsted have judged us to be “outstanding” in all areas and described standards as “exceptional”. Candidates can read of our recent Ofsted and exam successes on our website, kaa.org.uk, along with other evidence of the exceptional standards in our school.

The successful candidate will have:

  • Experience as a teacher of their subject in a secondary school for at least 2 years.
  • Appropriate leadership and management experience.
  • The ability to deliver consistently outstanding lessons in this subject to students of all ages and abilities.
  • Experience of creating high quality lesson plans and schemes of work, and sharing these with a team of teachers. 
  • The ability to communicate well, to work as a member of a team, and to have effective working relationships with students, staff and parents.
  • The ability to contribute to the wider work of the school, including our work as form tutors and reading teachers.
  • Commitment to the personal professional development of themselves and of others.
  • Experience of conducting lesson observations as a tool for improvement.
