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 2016, the school’s results profile placed it in the top 5% of schools nationally for the fifth consecutive year. The school is committed to developing its teachers and to fostering the development of outstanding teaching. The school is a small and 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.
Teachers provide outstanding Science teaching. There are generous resources and all teachers have their own beautifully equipped laboratory which includes a range of interactive technology. Science colleagues benefit from the participation in the Prince’s Teaching Institute and their professional development is supported by one of the school’s Deputy Heads. According to ability students study triple or dual science and there is significant take up at A-level for Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
An application form and Candidate Information Pack is available from the school’s website: http://www.hollandparkschool.co.uk/school/train-and-teach-with-us.
Early application is encouraged as we will seek to interview and appoint on receipt.
