We seek inspirational teachers to join our bank of supply staff. You will be called upon as and when required to cover for a minimum of one day. No two days will be the same.
As one of our Cover Teachers, you will have a strong classroom presence and experience of working with young people in a teaching or non-teaching capacity. You will cover for absent colleagues taking an active role in teaching the work set, engaging with students and upholding the academy’s high expectations.
The role would be flexible – you can tell us when you want to work and if we need your services, will book you for that time. It would give you the consistency of coming to the same school, time to get to know our students and understand how we work, whilst fitting in with your current commitments.
There are approximately 1,000 students on roll, which includes the Sixth Form. A recently completed building programme comprises a brand new Sixth Form Centre, sports facilities including a gym and a new restaurant and coffee shop for both students and staff.
Our aim is to establish a culture of excellence throughout every element of our academy and move us from Good to Outstanding.
Highcrest offers an innovative and extensive CPD package. No matter what your experience, we will help you develop into the teacher you aspire to be. We are also a School Centred Initial Teacher Training establishment. You would be welcome to join any of our after-school mini-twilight sessions, after a qualifying probationary period.
“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 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
