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.

The Humanities department are friendly and supportive and made up of passionate subject specialists. They strive to make lessons enjoyable for students to encourage a love of learning and are keen to run a greater number of trips and introduce students to new opportunities. The department has seen a growth in the number of students choosing options within the humanities disciplines, both at KS4 and KS5 and joining us at this time of growth could offer some exciting opportunities.

We are seeking to appoint an excellent part-time (3 days per week) Sociology teacher to join us. Committed to raising attainment, you will have the ability to motivate our KS5 students in this popular subject. The Humanities department is staffed with motivated and experienced teachers and has a commitment to continuous school improvement. It is a vibrant and exciting place to work and we are looking to appoint a committed and innovative teacher. The department is situated in a purpose-built block, with every classroom having interactive whiteboards and wireless facilities.

The position offers an excellent opportunity for either an established teacher or an NQT to join our over-subscribed and expanding school. 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.
