Date posted:
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: Inner London United Learning Teachers’ pay scale
Contract term: Permanent

At Lambeth Academy, we live by our school motto to ‘be exceptional’. To achieve this, we need the best staff to bring out the best in every single student. For many of our children, this means equipping them with the knowledge, ambition and skill to attend university and go on to have a meaningful career.

We have a relentless focus on high standards, whether this is on the learning in classrooms, our students’ interactions around the Academy, or in raising their aspirations. We don’t overcomplicate things: teachers teach, and students learn. Anything that takes away from this core focus has to come second. We believe exceptional learning is about determining the simple things that work, doing them well, and doing them all the time. If you’d like to join us on this mission, please come and visit us – we’d be delighted to welcome you.


The Role

The teacher of Art will ensure that student outcomes in the subject are excellent. Art at Lambeth Academy has flourished over the last few years, with some creative, imaginative and highly skilled pieces being produced in lessons and clubs from Year 7 to Year 13. Our annual Art Exhibition showcases the incredible work of our students, and has resulted in their work being used in public, most notably as part of a campaign to raise awareness of race inequality in bus shelters and advertising spaces across South London.

The main duties of the role are outlined in more detail below, but the principal responsibilities include ensuring a highly effective teaching and learning across all lessons and where all students make great progress, regardless of their starting points. You will be responsible to, and highly supported by, the Head of Art.


About You

You will need to have QTS and a good honours degree in the relevant subject area. The successful candidate will also need to be able to work independently as well as part of a team. You will need to be able to work under pressure, have excellent communications skills, and be computer literate.

You will have experience in delivering high quality teaching and learning, be a consistently good to outstanding teacher and have high personal and professional standards.

You will be enthusiastic about working within a school environment and supporting the needs of the Academy.


About the Cluster

The two United Learning South London Academies – Lambeth and Hurlingham formalised a cluster arrangement in September 2018 with the vision to provide a high quality and comprehensive partnership in order to support and nourish our local young people. This arrangement has allowed us to share knowledge and expertise across both academies.


About Lambeth Academy

We are a diverse and vibrant community and are situated close to Clapham Common.  Our vision is to achieve exemplary teaching which develops individual talents and abilities, and which realises the potential in everyone.

We are seeking to appoint committed and hardworking staff who are passionate about making a difference to the lives of our children and young people.

United Learning

Lambeth Academy is part of United Learning, a large, and growing, group of schools aiming to offer a life changing education to children and young people across England.

Our schools work as a team and achieve more by sharing than any single school could. Our subject specialists, our Group-wide intranet, our own curriculum and our online learning portal all help us share knowledge and resource, helping to simplify work processes and manage workloads for an improved work-life balance.

As a Group, we can reward our staff better: with good career opportunities, better pay, benefits, and ultimately, the satisfaction of helping children to succeed. We invest in our staff wellbeing. Our academies each have at least eight INSET days per year (with three of those solely dedicated to planning), and an ongoing group-wide wellbeing programme. It's an ethos we call ‘the best in everyone’.
