If you want to be the best, then you should probably join us
Students in our academy made more progress than in any other school in London and made the best progress of any co-educational school in the country in 2014 (Best 8 score 1081.4). In addition, we have maintained our results in 2017 at a level significantly above national averages. That is great news for our students, the academy and our community, but there is so much more that we know can be achieved and you can help.
We have a relentless ambition to deliver continuing success to the young people we serve. Our approach is based on very simple principles: clear systems and extremely high expectations. We focus on the development of our students, their values and ultimately their academic success. We maximise the impact of teaching by providing clear leadership, minimising bureaucracy and effective support that have tangible results on the quality of teaching and outcomes for our students.
We are looking for a highly motivated, exceptional individual to take on the role of a Teaching Assistant. You will be working with excellent staff in this exciting and challenging post. You need to have extremely high expectations to ensure children regardless of gender, ethnicity and religion achieve to the best of their ability.
An interest in working with students with a wide range of special educational needs including emotional, social and mental health needs is essential, together with an interest in supporting second language learners. A caring, flexible and common sense approach is important.
This is a fantastic opportunity for you to shape the lives of young people in Hackney. If you think you can help transform the opportunities for the community we serve then we would like to hear from you.
