If you want to be the best, then you should probably join us
The City Academy, Hackney is one of only seven schools in the country to have a Progress 8 score above 1 for 2016. In each of the three years the academy has sat GCSE exams, students have made exceptional progress and made the best progress of any co-educational school in the country in 2014. 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.
You will play a leading role in developing the Science programme for students in the academy. This exciting and challenging post requires an enthusiastic, conscientious and energetic individual, who is also an exceptional teacher of science.
Duties will include:
• The strategic leadership of the Science department;
• Ensuring high-quality teaching and learning is delivered to all students;
• Developing systems and procedures to efficiently challenge any underachievement;
• Developing meaningful partnerships with parents/carers and local primary schools.
If you think you can help radically transform the opportunities for the community we serve then we would like to hear from you.
The City Academy, Hackney is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. An enhanced DBS check is required for all successful applicants.
