Are you an outstanding teacher with the passion and motivation to inspire young people?
If so, then you will not want to miss out on this golden opportunity to join our high-performing school, which recently retained its Ofsted Good rating, as Second in Department for English. The person appointed will be an outstanding classroom practitioner and strong leader who will join a vibrant and forward-thinking English team.
Why come to Latimer?
This is a fantastic school to work in: as a result of our success and popularity we are over-subscribed and have a very strong positive reputation. On interview we ask candidates for their impressions of the College and without fail they comment on how wonderful our students are, the supportive team ethos amongst staff and how friendly and welcoming the College is.
We are a tight-knit unit striving for the very best for our students and we are focussed on, and passionate about, learning and success.
We genuinely care about our staff, their well-being and their professional development: we are a happy team, committed to working collaboratively and sharing the very best practice. This was very much recognised in our recent Ofsted Inspection.
If you are an outstanding English teacher aspiring to undertake a leadership role it really is worth applying for this post. We need a candidate who has a clear vision of what outstanding English provision looks like. They will be ambitious and see this role as a great stepping stone to a higher leadership position in the near future. We have a strong track record of succession planning and many of our current leaders have progressed to promoted posts within the College. Indeed, this post has come about due to the promotion to Head of Department of the current post-holder.
We are seeking to appoint a candidate who is passionate about learning; a team player who will thrive on collaboration and team work; someone who really wants to make a difference!
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This post will be subject to an enhanced DBS disclosure.
The Latimer Arts College values the diversity of our workforce and welcomes applications from all sectors of the community.
