Bobby Moore Academy is an all through school, providing a world-class education for the children of east London, and is transformational in its impact on their life chances. We are situated across two iconic sites on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park: a fitting legacy for the people and children of East London.
Since the school was founded in 2017, we have set ambitious academic standards backed up by exciting enrichment opportunities, whilst nurturing and caring for the wellbeing of every child. At capacity, our two sites will accommodate over 1500 pupils, including a Sixth Form from September 2022. We currently have over 700 pupils on roll across Reception, Year 1, Year 2, and Years 7-10 in the Secondary phase. The academy will grow year on year to reach full capacity in 2024.
We’re looking to appoint an ambitious, dynamic and inspirational curriculum leader in the Primary phase, who will harness the enthusiasm of our team and lead our frontier cohort through their Key Stage 2 journey. We expect the highest standards from our pupils and staff, and we are looking for someone who will be genuinely inspired by the chance to apply their knowledge and experience in a setting designed to be among the best of its kind in the country.
