We are seeking to appoint an outstanding Teacher of Drama to join our school in September 2019. The person appointed will teach across the school including GCSE and A level.

We are determined to appoint a candidate who will fit well within the Performing Arts department and one that will exude the whole school ethos. The candidate must be an excellent classroom practitioner.

  • Passionate about their subject.
  • Creative and inspirational in the way that they teach.
  • Dedicated individuals who have become a highly effective team.
  • Totally professional in everything that they do.

St Andrew the Apostle Greek Orthodox School opened in September 2013 as the first maintained Greek Orthodox secondary school in the country. It was developed from the beliefs, vision and commitment of a wide group of parents, teachers, business people and intellectuals in the Greek Orthodox community and the Church itself. Our first set of GCSE results (2018) placed us in the top 20% of school’s nationally and in many categories, including English, the top 3%.

Our school is part of the academy sponsor, the Russell Education Trust (RET) and was established as a partnership between RET, the Greek Orthodox Church and the Classical Education Trust. RET is a specialist education sponsor and has five secondary schools which work together to share and promote best practice. Our schools and teachers benefit from RET’s expert professional development service.

In addition to our exceptional GCSE results, St Andrew the Apostle School was judged as good in all areas our most recent OfSTED Inspection and the report noted the following:

  • Governors and senior leaders set high expectations for pupils. They set challenging targets and provide support so that pupils can achieve them.
  • Pupils’ outcomes in their GCSE examinations in 2018 were strong. Disadvantaged pupils achieved particularly well.
  • Students said that there was a ‘family atmosphere’ in the school and that there is a warmth in the relationships between students.

The opening of St Andrew the Apostle promoted a significant level of interest in the local community. The school offers 50% of places on a faith basis and 50% to the local community. In discussion with parents it has become clear they are attracted to a school with high academic standards and a distinctive Christian ethos and visions and our Trust’s emphasis on excellence in English, maths and science and the EBACC is fully endorsed by our current parents and those applying for places for 2019. Our curriculum is designed to meet the needs of the full range of students, developing them intellectually, culturally, spiritually and morally.

Applications are welcome from teachers of all faiths and other belief backgrounds and this is reflected in our current staff composition.
