We encourage you to read our website very carefully and familiarise yourself with our 2014 Ofsted report, our prospectus, candidate information pack and application form for the post. What will be clear to you is that you are applying to an extremely successful school and one with a decidedly clear ethos of achievement. We moved, in November 2012, into a brand new £80 million school. The school became an Academy in September 2013 and was recognised by the Department for Education as a Teaching School in 2015. In 2017, the school’s results profile placed it in the top 5% of schools nationally for the sixth consecutive year. The school is committed to developing its teachers and to fostering the development of outstanding teaching. The school is a personalised community which is committed to creating careers for people. It is experienced in supporting NQTs and indeed enjoys this aspect of staff development but it has had equal success in fostering the careers of colleagues who join having taught in other schools or have had other careers.
Teachers provide outstanding Latin teaching. There are generous resources and all teachers have their own classroom which includes a range of interactive technology. Latin colleagues also benefit from the participation in the Prince’s Teaching Institute. Our most able students in Years 7 and 8 study Latin and it is expected that such students proceed to study GCSE Latin and the majority do. The school has established AS and A2 Latin teaching as part of its offer and a small, but committed number of students make this choice. The school is interesting in candidates who are able to teach Latin but are also interested in any candidates who are able to teach Latin and a modern foreign language (either French or Spanish) although this is not essential and we encourage applications from candidates only able to teach Latin.
An application form that should be completed electronically is available from the school’s website: http://www.hollandparkschool.co.uk/vacancies/train-and-teach-with-us. Early application is encouraged as we will seek to interview and appoint on receipt. The closing date for applications is Tuesday 16th January 2018.
We are hosting an open house event for prospective teachers on Saturday 13th January 2018 beginning at 10.00. The event is aimed to provide an insight into this Ofsted outstanding and DfE recognised teaching school and supply details of how to pursue opportunities with the school. You are warmly encouraged to visit our website for details and to register your indication to attend.
