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 Hackney and made the best progress of any co-educational school in the country in 2014. In 2015 and 2016 students made exceptional progress with a Progress 8 score above 1.00, one of only seven schools in the country to achieve this. 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.
Following the resignation of our current Vice Principal, we are now seeking to appoint a highly skilled, professional and experienced leader to be responsible for curriculum within the academy.
The successful applicant will provide strategic and operational leadership, planning, curriculum, timetable, intervention and reporting.
You must be educated to degree level or equivalent, have qualified Teacher Status and have a minimum of two years senior leadership experience. The successful candidate must be a confident leader who can function well as part of a team, have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, be highly organised and have the ability to work under pressure in order to meet deadlines.
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.
The City Academy, Hackney is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. An enhanced DBS check is required for all successful applicants.
