April 2024 Start Date

We are seeking an enthusiastic, creative and innovative Faculty Director of Performing Arts with a broad range of experience to join our successful Performing Arts Department. As Faculty Director you will lead, develop and manage the effective delivery of an outstanding curriculum, which enables the highest level of student progress and attainment. The successful candidate must have experience of outstanding, sustained, and successful teaching at all key stages and across all abilities.

Teacher Benefits at Bexleyheath Academy:

* Teachers are only required to; plan great inclusive lessons, mark work and provide feedback to help students make progress and assess students.
* Teachers have one 'flex' period a week to either come in late or leave early. This is with the understanding that they can complete their work offsite.

Teachers at Bexleyheath Academy do not:

* Complete duties
* Complete detentions
* Chase behaviour sanctions
* Make calls home

Bexleyheath Academy is proud to be a non-selective school in the grammar heartland of Kent. Bexleyheath Academy is quickly approaching capacity with students; in order to accommodate the demands of the local community and grow our skilled staff, we must expand.

With immediate train access to Central London and easy access to the Kent countryside, Bexleyheath has the best of both worlds. Despite having a Kent postcode, Bexleyheath is classified as Greater London due to its strategic location between Welling, Sidcup, and Bexley village. You can reach Dartford for the river crossing with a short drive along the A2.

Its thriving hub is The Broadway - a shopping district with added appeal in the shape of a bowling alley, cinema and a growing number of restaurants. A little beyond Bexleyheath and you're at Bluewater, Ashford for the designer outlet and international rail travel to Europe.

When inspectors visited Bexleyheath Academy in July 2021, they said that the way in which pupils work in school has been "transformed", and that "there is a positive atmosphere in classes and around the school". Inspectors also said that the school "has completely changed" and have confirmed in their report that Bexleyheath Academy is officially a good school.

Should you wish to visit us in person then our doors are open to you at any time on any day. Please contact the Principal
