Our aim is to establish a culture of excellence throughout every element of our academy and move us from Good to Outstanding.
Just 30 minutes by train from Central London, The Highcrest Academy is the first All Ability Academy in the county of Buckinghamshire. It is culturally diverse and a vibrant school making it a fantastic place to teach. We have some students who will need all your support and yet we also featured in the national Ofsted report (2016) for providing challenge to the most able. Does this enthuse you?
There are approximately 1000 students on roll, which includes the Sixth Form. A new building programme, just completed, comprises a brand new Sixth Form Centre, sports facilities including a gym and a new restaurant and coffee shop for both students and staff. There is also the possibility of shared living accommodation.
This post would suit an NQT or experienced teacher who can look forward to joining a successful department to teach KS3 and KS4, with opportunities in KS5 for the right candidate to teach A Level Maths and Further Maths.
The Maths department is a successful department achieving a score of 0.30, its highest to date. It is staffed with happy, motivated and experienced teachers and has a commitment to continuous school improvement. Highcrest is an exciting place to work and we are looking to appoint a committed and innovative teacher.
Highcrest offers an innovative and extensive CPD package. No matter what your experience, we will help you develop into the teacher you aspire to be.
“I’d definitely say our INSET and CPD programme/sessions are far better than anything I’ve seen or heard of from other schools.” ... Head of Art
We also have a thriving House system that brings our whole school community together.
“The growing house system encourages competition between not only students but also staff, which creates a real community feeling, making it an enjoyable place to work.” ... Head of Humanities
