“Staff are proud of the work they do. Building on the long-standing traditions of the school, staff support the development of ‘courteous, respectful and calm’ young men, reflecting the school’s well-established values.”
[Ofsted Report – February 2017]
We wish to appoint a colleague to contribute to the continuing success of the students and who has the desire to work in an outstanding science department in a Leading Edge school.
We have a history of excellence and are a high-performing school. Our Progress 8 measure is in the top 14% nationally, and science is, and has been, consistently in the top 10% for many years. At GCSE, students make excellent progress in all measures and all the sciences are extremely popular at A Level. Girls join our highly successful Sixth Form and many students further their studies at university.
Across the school, students benefit from our insistence on: high standards and achievement, an exceptional range of extra-curricular activities and the focus on traditional values. The school is in a period of growth and four new science laboratories will open this September.
In addition to teaching, this post will require the successful candidate to take responsibility for leading the teaching and learning at Key Stage 3. The TLR allowance will be dependent on experience.
We are an over-subscribed and popular boys’ school with a mixed Sixth Form. We are situated in a tree-lined neighbourhood of the London Borough of Hounslow, a vibrant area of West London. We are close to Osterley Park, a short hop from central London by tube or rail, and have easy access to the M3, M4 and Heathrow Airport.
Amongst other benefits, we offer:
· Dynamic, innovative and supportive colleagues with “outstanding” student behaviour
· A full and bespoke induction programme
· On-going professional development with an individual CPD allowance
· State of the art touchscreen classroom technology and a laptop
· The opportunity to work with a range of leading external partnerships
· A chef-led canteen service
· Access to schemes such as: childcare vouchers; cycle to work and free flu jabs.
