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.
Holland Park School takes a whole school inclusive approach to teaching, recognising that the aims of the school are the same for all students. Each year the school creates a small group in Year 7 and 8 who are only taught by a small number of teachers and we are seeking to appoint a teacher to this unique post who is able to teach across a range of subjects (English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, RE) to such a group. There are generous resources and the successful candidate would have their own classroom which benefits from a range of interactive technology and brand new teaching resources. The successful candidate should be able to demonstrate their understanding, and proficiency in, developing teaching and learning opportunities, to ensure that all students have access to suitably challenging educational opportunities.
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 19th March 2018.
