About Isleworth and Syon School for Boys

Our School
Isleworth & Syon School is a great place to work and a place where teachers can develop. Our staff are energetic, dedicated and absolutely committed to working together in order to ensure that our boys (and students in our mixed Sixth Form) remain ambitious and highly successful.
We have a history of excellence, and we are a high-performing school and part of the ‘Leading Edge’ network. Our progress measures at GCSE level are significantly above that for boys nationally and at all levels progress and attainment scores are well above national scores.

Our Ethos
Relationships are critical to our success and to our future. We empower our staff and encourage everyone to work collegially in departments to create shared resources so that planning time can be spent refining rather than re-inventing lessons. Good practice is shared and all staff contribute ideas to further enhance the curriculum. Our school is systematically organised and pastoral processes are tightly managed to allow staff to build professional relationships with students in order to create excellent learning environments.

Across the school, students benefit from our insistence on: high standards and achievement, an exceptional range of extra-curricular activities, and the focus on traditional values. We are looking for a colleague that aspires to be part of a great team of staff and who will enjoy learning about the ‘Isleworth & Syon Way’, our unique strategy of ensuring success for all students.

Our Staff
We recognise that our staff are our greatest resource. Therefore, we are ambitious for our staff and invest heavily in their development. We offer an extensive programme of professional development which offers a range of opportunities for training, including internally, through local and national programmes. We have strong partnerships with universities and higher education institutions and actively support staff pursuing heavily subsidised Masters degrees and other higher qualifications. There will also be opportunities for internal promotion and to chances to collaborate within our local partnership of schools.

We are situated in a tree-lined neighbourhood of Isleworth, a vibrant area of West London. Close to Osterley Park and a short hop from central London by tube (Osterley is a 10-minute walk) or rail (Isleworth is a 7-minute walk). There is easy access to the M3, M4 and Heathrow Airport.
