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 excellent examination results in 2019 with many pupils achieving top grades at both GCSE and A level.

We foster a collaborative culture where talented individuals are empowered to produce their best work in brand new purpose built accommodation.

The school is located less than 10 minutes’ walk from Barking tube and mainline station (25 minutes from Liverpool Street station) and is easily accessible by road.

We are seeking a well-qualified and ambitious professional who is motivated to make a difference to the life chances of young people. The post would suit a team player who is committed to the happiness, well-being, self-esteem and progress of everyone at the school. The ability or desire to teach in our primary phase would be an advantage but is not essential.  

We have the highest expectations of everyone and can offer: 

• Highly aspirational pupils who are eager to learn

• A highly supportive school in which teaching and learning is the key priority, and staff are provided with the time and coaching needed to be successful.

• The opportunity to teach in our outstanding and oversubscribed sixth form

• Career development (Leadership training for exceptional candidates after 2 years in post)
