London Academy of Excellence Tottenham (2021 Sunday Times Sixth Form College of the year) is recruiting a Primary School Programme Co-ordinator to join a new team of partnership teachers who will work as part of the school’s exciting new outreach project, Chrysalis East.
Chrysalis East aims to reduce inequalities in progression to highly-selective universities for students across Tottenham. Working in partnership across a network of local schools, this new programme includes academic enrichment, intervention, university preparation and careers guidance.
The role combines subject specialist classroom teaching with a range of outreach and enrichment activities supporting local partner schools. Partnership teachers are based at LAE Tottenham but also work across our partner secondary schools – Duke’s Aldridge Academy, Gladesmore Community School, Park View School and Woodside High School, designing and delivering innovative and inspiring sessions that achieve our mission. The programme also aims to reach primary pupils, for now as a pilot project, but expanding in coming years where there is impact.
LAET is committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive community - a place where we can all be ourselves and succeed on merit. We welcome applications from a diverse range of candidates.
London Academy of Excellence Tottenham is an academically selective 16-19 free school, opened as part of the redevelopment of White Hart Lane in 2017. It is based on the successful model of our sibling school LAE Stratford, named by the Sunday Times as the State Sixth Form of the Year in 2015. Our principal sponsors are Highgate School and Tottenham Hotspur Football Club and the school is also supported by eight other independent schools.
As part of its charitable mission, Highgate School has for many years supported university progression through its highly successful Chrysalis Programme, which works in partnership with 50 schools across London each year. LAE Tottenham is building on this model to launch Chrysalis East, a new hub for the programme in Tottenham.
Chrysalis East exists to support progression to highly-selective universities for students in Tottenham. It will focus on four key priorities: 1) Core subject attainment 2)Academic enrichment 3) University preparation and 4) Careers and employability. Partnership Teachers will play a crucial role in the design and delivery of the programme.
The programme activities are varied and flexible depending on the needs of schools and students. Ranging from early years through to sixth form, they include: clubs, teacher development, enrichment days, masterclasses, mentoring and summer schools. While there is an initial blueprint to work from, we are open minded about working in innovative ways to create something powerful for Tottenham students.
Chrysalis East is now looking to expand their team by having an enthusiastic communicator who can coordinate the pilot primary project with our partner primary schools.
