Excellent opportunity for an inspirational teacher, in a successful, well ordered, and inclusive 3-19 all through school. We are at the heart of an ethnically diverse community in London East, an area undergoing significant regeneration and building affordable homes.   We have just celebrated record breaking public examination results in 2017 with many pupils achieving top grades at both GCSE and A level.

We are fortunate to have a wide range of experience and skills within the Design and Technology Department and this is why we have a sustained and excellent year on year increase in our GCSE, BTEC and A level results.
