About Us

At City of London Academy Islington we aim to provide an exceptional level of care and education for every individual student. The Academy, which opened in September 2008, is a mixed, non-selective Academy, with no religious affiliation, committed to providing excellence in education and opportunities for all. In our Ofsted inspection report (March 2019), we were rated outstanding in every category; personal development and behaviour, teaching and learning, student outcomes and leadership and management. We have been graded outstanding overall. This inspection outcome and our results reflect the aspirations, determination and hard work of all students and staff at the Academy and we are always exceptionally proud of what we achieve together. We have a proven track record of school improvement, offering students an exciting curriculum and a wealth of opportunities outside of the classroom.

City of London Academy Islington is part of the City of London Academies Trust, a multi-academy trust with schools in North, East and South London. We combine the heritage and tradition of the Corporation of London with a genuinely innovative, enterprising and entrepreneurial ethos.  We’re also committed to providing first-rate training and development to all of our teaching staff, plus excellent career advancement opportunities within this evolving Trust.

We can offer you:

• Students who are eager to learn, well behaved and very proud of their school;

• Exceptional focus on continuous professional development

• An appetite for creativity and continuous improvement

• A dedicated, caring and experienced staff team

From you, we need:

We believe exceptional teaching assistants play a crucial role in the delivery of teaching and learning in our Academy and student attainment.

We believe that support team members within our school should be supported too, with all the opportunities needed to develop and achieve their goals. 

This is an exciting time in the school’s journey to sustain and develop further as an excellent provider of high-quality education. 

We are looking for a highly skilled and knowledgeable candidate who wants to work in a role where there is ample opportunity to apply their learning and development support expertise and skills within a secondary school environment and who would like to develop their skills further through the opportunity to mentor other teaching and learning support professionals.

Ideally, you will have a Level 2 or 3 award in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools and previous experience of supporting students in a secondary educational setting, but we will consider applications from candidates without previous experience who have the capacity and willingness to learn on the job.  

You will be working within a team whose mission it is to sustain and further develop excellence in everything we do. 

How to Apply:

If you would like to make an application, please do so via the TES.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This post is subject to an enhanced DBS, prohibition from teaching and medical checks.
