Our aim is to establish a culture of excellence throughout every element of our academy and move us from Good to Outstanding.

Just 30 minutes by train from Central London, The Highcrest Academy is the first All Ability Academy in the county of Buckinghamshire. It is culturally diverse and a vibrant school making it a fantastic place to work. We have some students who will need support and yet we also featured in the national Ofsted report (2016) for providing challenge to the most able. 

There are approximately 950 students on roll, which includes the Sixth Form. A new building programme, just completed, comprises a brand new Sixth Form Centre, sports facilities including a gym and a new restaurant and coffee shop for both students and staff.

You will join our successful, forward thinking Science department which consists of nine teaching staff and other technicians. Your responsibilities will include preparation of materials and equipment for practical lessons, organisation and ordering of materials, together with admin and general maintenance work. Health and Safety training will be provided. Previous experience of working in school science labs or related area such as biology would be an advantage but is not essential. A Job-share will be considered.

“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

We also have a thriving House system that brings our whole school community together.

“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

If you are passionate about education and want to really make a difference to 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, staff recognition schemes and free gym to counter the “Friday Biscuits” and on-site coffee shop!
