Already the country’s best performing Trust for the new Progress 8 measure at KS4, the City of London Academies Trust is driven by ambition: to deliver world-class results as we combine the heritage and tradition of the City of London with creativity and innovation. We have a proven track record of school improvement, offering students an exciting curriculum and opportunities to perform, showcase their talents and experience the world of work outside of the classroom.
Highbury Grove School joined the Trust in September 2017. Following a disappointing Ofsted inspection in December 2016, the senior team and governors sought to restore the school’s positive ethos in partnership with other City of London Schools. We know that only high calibre staff can rise to the challenge and contribute to the long-term objective, providing creative teaching, nurturing students’ abilities, and showing ambition for their own career as well as the students’.
We believe exceptional teachers create exceptional results; they transform lives and transform futures. They support every student to achieve their full potential and become a confident, resilient and compassionate individual who can make a positive contribution to society. We believe that exceptional teachers like you should be supported too, with all the opportunities you need to develop and achieve your goals.
We’re committed to providing first-rate training and development to all of our staff, as well as excellent career advancement opportunities within this evolving Trust. You’ll find high expectations here too; we expect the kind of exemplary conduct from students that allows our teachers to do their jobs as effectively as they can.
This is an exciting time in the school’s journey to re-establish itself as an excellent provider of high-quality education, and with the changes come opportunities. We have a clear plan of improvement which requires staff who are energetic and have a desire to take on the challenge under the experienced leadership of the CEO, Mark Emmerson, and the Executive Principal, Clare Verga. In this post you will play an instrumental role in school improvement, developing whole-school systems and ensuring that the school is outstanding in every category within three years. You will be working with a team whose mission it is to embed excellence in everything we do.
