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 to appoint an excellent Resistant Materials/Systems and Control Teacher to join our innovative and laterally-minded team in the Design and Technology Department. Committed to raising attainment, you will have the ability to enthuse students in your subject area and make wider contributions to the department. There is an opportunity for you to contribute to Engineering in the Sixth Form.
The position offers an excellent opportunity for either an established teacher or an NQT to join our over-subscribed and expanding school. An opportunity to take a lead in this subject will be available for a suitably experienced applicant. If you are passionate about your subjects 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.
