Job summary

‘The best school I’ve ever worked at: the culture, the staff and students, the training, everything!’ (Staff member)

‘I was amazed at what a great atmosphere the school exuded, how well turned out the children were and how polite and bright they all seemed’ (Visitor)

The Bridge Academy is a truly exceptional school. Our students’ progress is consistently excellent for GCSE and A level, and our superb personal development offer means that over the last three years we have been national debating champions, enjoyed a host of sporting successes and won both the Incorporated Society of Musicians Gold Award and the Hackney Mayor’s award for music.

Why choose us?

• Excellent student behaviour and highly supportive Senior Leadership Team.
• An achievement-oriented culture where students work hard and it is cool to be smart.
• A warm/strict approach, meaning that our high standards do not come at the expense
of inclusion.
• The belief that teaching must be a sustainable profession: clear systems and
structures, sensible approach to feedback and no ‘late night culture’.

We are seeking a Design Technology Teacher (Textiles) who is totally aligned to our values of Hard Work, Integrity and Kindness, and completely committed to our mission: to ensure that every student will succeed at a good university or equivalent, thrive in their chosen field and live a great life.

The Design & Technology department (including Hospitality & Catering) is an experienced team, currently working on the development and implementation of an exciting new curriculum. All KS3 students study Design & Technology - Resistant Materials, Textiles, and Hospitality & Catering for three hours, over a two-week timetable. AQA GCSE Design & Technology, WJEC Level 1/2 award in Hospitality & Catering and AQA A-Level, Design & Technology in Product Design, are offered as options at KS4 and KS5.

The successful candidate will teach Design & Technology: Textiles to KS4. In addition, the ability to deliver lessons with a focus on Resistant Materials, Hospitality & Catering/Food Preparation and Nutrition, to KS3 is highly desirable, but not essential. If you are a passionate subject specialist who wants to make a profound difference to the lives of your students, we would love to hear from you.

Our sponsors UBS provide significant support to the Academy, and we also work with a wide variety of community groups to ensure the best for all our students. Our award winning building is outstanding and is based at our stunning canal-side location, just minutes from Haggerston Station and just over a mile from the heart of the City of London.

The Bridge Academy is committed to safeguarding children and all appointments will be subject to receipt of a satisfactory Enhanced DBS check and references.
