Over the last three years, King Solomon Academy has consistently been one of top ten highest performing non-selective schools in the country. Alongside other high performing schools serving disadvantaged communities, we are redefining what is possible for pupils and are therefore seeking exceptional teachers who are ready to contribute to our school’s mission. This is a unique opportunity to be part of a reputable school, that every day proves what an excellent education can achieve.

King Solomon Academy aims to transform the lives of its pupils. Our mission is to provide a rigorous education that prepares our pupils for success at university and beyond, irrespective of their starting point. Our teachers and leaders do whatever it takes to make this dream a reality.

We are looking for teachers of EYFS, KS1 and KS2 to join us on our journey. The three positions available would suit teachers who are keen to work in an environment that has high expectations. You will play a pivotal role in your given key stage, working within a committed team who are making a real impact on the outcomes of our pupils from day one.

King Solomon’s success can be credited to our dedicated and trusted staff, our risk-taking nature and the innovative approaches we adopt. We know that our students cannot reach their full potential without great teachers and so we prioritise professional development geared towards excellence.

“There is no doubt in my mind this is the best place to be if you want to get better at teaching. The focus is on developing teachers and career progression is very rapid – the network opportunities are huge. It’s refreshing to feel all staff working in the same direction” Teacher at King Solomon Academy

Staff are offered regular, tailored training and guidance to help them improve their practice, direct and regular mentoring with an experienced line manager and co-planning sessions.

Regular feedback means teachers have clear guidance on how they can improve. Weekly one-to-ones incorporating coaching are sacrosanct and this all helps to affirm a supportive, collaborative infrastructure. Every voice, from student to staff, is heard at King Solomon making it a caring and open environment where hard work never goes unnoticed.

In this role you will:

  • Be part of an all-through school which genuinely focuses on pupils’ long term outcomes, allowing the curriculum and teaching approaches that work for the long term
  • Deliver nationally ground-breaking outcomes
  • Be developed as an exceptional teacher
  • Have the opportunity to take on additional leadership responsibilities as you develop
  • Join the Ark network, accessing comprehensive development opportunities

King Solomon Academy is a place where teachers learn how to improve their teaching, constantly striving to be the best they can be. Each teacher is supported with weekly drop-in observations and action steps, meaning our teachers rapidly progress into being exceptional classroom practitioners. Our school is one which is transformational for staff and pupils alike.
