About The Latymer School

I am delighted to write, as the Headteacher of The Latymer School, to thank you for your interest in the post of Biology Teacher at our school. The post is for a maternity cover, part time, but full time applications will be considered.
The Latymer School is a high achieving, selective grammar school with a great tradition of success; we aim to provide a first class education for all our students. In 2018-19 our GCSE results were outstanding with 31% at Level 9 and 62% level 8 or 9, with 85% at level 7/8/9. At A Level 25% of grades were A*, 63% of grades were A*/A, and 87% A*/B . In 2019 - 20 Centre Assessed Grades were used to generate accurate results for our students. Again amazing results, but we always feel we can do better. Our students go on to the top universities including a high number to Oxford or Cambridge and we are looking for someone who wants to work with and support bright and ambitious students.
We believe that an outstanding education develops students academically, socially and morally, giving them the skills to be successful in whatever they do once they have left us. We also feel it is important to develop students outside of the classroom and offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities and trips.
Our motto is ‘who endeavours wins’ and that sums up the ethos we wish to build within our school community; life is not always straight forward and we encourage our students to persist, to keep trying and then success will come.
Our interview feedback informs us that teachers can be wary about applying to The Latymer School; applicants worry whether their subject knowledge is strong enough or whether they will be able to cope with the high academic standard. Please do not let this concern you, contact the school and we will be happy to arrange a visit prior to applying.
We look forward to welcoming you to our community and look forward to receiving your application for the post. Further information can also be found on our website.
