What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking to appoint an Achievement Leader of English to start April or September 2023. We are seeking someone who will be ambitious for our students, and has a vision for the development of English in our curriculum. The challenge for the successful applicant will be to contribute to developing an already strong Faculty and lead the drive to raise standards across all disciplines at KS3 and GCSE. This role sits within the Senior Leadership Team alongside the Headteacher, 2 Heads of School, 6 Assistant Headteachers and 7 Achievement Leaders. The previous post holder has been promoted to the role of Assistant Headteacher, Teaching and Learning, after a robust interview process against an external field.

For the successful candidate, a commitment to raising standards and a passion for developing young adults is essential: this entails a commitment to all learners, to excellence for all, and a belief that a good school makes a significant difference to learners’ life chances, levels of attainment and the wellbeing of the community as a whole.

What the school offers its staff

This is an exciting time in our school’s history. Eastleigh is a changing town, with much development in both business and residential areas. There has been an expansion in the primary sector with several local schools undergoing expansion to their buildings to accommodate the growth in student numbers. Crestwood merged with the former Quilley School in 2016 to provide one secondary school for Eastleigh, something new and exciting, offering high quality education for the children of Eastleigh. In 2022 we became oversubscribed in every year group and are operating a waiting list across both campuses. The two campuses are situated at Shakespeare Road and Cherbourg Road and both offer the same high quality education to all year groups with little movement of students. Staff are expected to teach across both sites and play an active part in their innovative and high-performing teams. Our first six years of operation has been successful in establishing a strong culture and ethos, typified by the #Crestwoodfamily.

As a new member of staff you will be well supported: we have a comprehensive induction process, and you will be given an Induction Mentor and a ‘professional buddy’. As the posts sits within the SLT you will receive direct support from the Headteacher and Heads of School.

Commitment to safeguarding

Crestwood Community School and Hampshire County Council are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We will ensure that all our recruitment and selection practices reflect this commitment. All successful candidates will be subject to Disclosure and Barring Service checks along with other relevant employment checks.

Crestwood Community School is one school, with two campuses serving central Eastleigh. Crestwood Community School had an Ofsted inspection in June 2018, which confirmed that we are a ‘good’ school. We also achieved outstanding gradings in Personal Development and Behaviour and Leadership. They also said that as a school we are “passionately committed to providing a first-class inclusive education for all pupils; tenacious in their pursuit of additional resources and approaches to continually improve provision.” This is a happy school, where staff and students want to be. The #Crestwoodfamily pervades through everything we do.
