If you want to be the best, then you should probably join us 

Students in our academy made more progress than in any other school in Hackney and made the best progress of any co-educational school in the country in 2014. In 2015 and 2016 students made exceptional progress with a Progress 8 score above 1.00, one of only seven schools in the country to achieve this. That is great news for our students, the academy and our community, but there is so much more that we know can be achieved and you can help. 

We have a relentless ambition to deliver continuing success to the young people we serve. Our approach is based on very simple principles: clear systems and extremely high expectations. We focus on the development of our students, their values and ultimately their academic success. We maximise the impact of teaching by providing clear leadership, minimising bureaucracy and effective support that have tangible results on the quality of teaching and outcomes for our students. 

The Role 

You will play a leading role in developing the Humanities programme for students in the academy. This exciting and challenging post requires an enthusiastic, hardworking, conscientious and energetic individual, who is experienced in working with young people, teaching Humanities and ensuring children are supported regardless of gender, ethnicity and religion helping them to achieve and enjoy learning to the best of their ability. 

Duties will include: 

  • The strategic leadership of the Humanities faculty. 
  • Ensuring high-quality teaching and learning is delivered to all students. 
  • Developing systems and procedures to efficiently challenge underachieving students. 
  • Developing meaningful partnership with parents/carers and local primary schools. 

This is a fantastic opportunity to help make a difference to the lives of students in Hackney. If you think you can contribute to our goals then we would like to hear from you.
