A “fresh start” school now firmly “Good” – join our team on the way to outstanding.

“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

“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

Ofsted recognised our truly innovative approach to delivering personalised CPD. Inspired by Harry Beck’s London Underground Tube map, our staff (passengers), choose their destination, the lines they wish to travel, and the stops they want to get off at. Many staff are also drivers sharing their expertise with colleagues.

We are seeking an outstanding practitioner to join our Performing Arts department. The ability to pass on your passion for Music is essential and experience of teaching up to KS4 is desirable. The role provides the opportunity to develop exciting musical opportunities, including extra-curricular clubs and whole school productions. The department is well-equipped, with a large music room and smaller practice rooms, as well as a music studio. You will be keen to promote the Music department and improve upon the opportunities available to our students. 

This role could suit an NQT or more experienced 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.

If you are passionate about your subject and want to really make a difference in the lives of young people then The Highcrest Academy could be the school for you; a thriving school in the heart of the community with free on-site parking and “Friday Biscuits”!

Just 30 minutes by train from Central London, The Highcrest Academy is the first All Ability Academy in 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 950 students on roll, which includes the Sixth Form. A new building programme will begin later this year to increase our Sixth Form, sports and recreational facilities for both students and staff.
