All teachers joining Wren receive a
high-quality professional development experience. We hope that simply by
working at the new academy, teachers will become better practitioners and that
much of the best professional development will be found in working with Wren
colleagues. However, we explicitly
prioritise CPD with an innovative programme which provides 3 discrete hours for
the development of teachers. Within this structure there is a focus on engaging
with the latest educational research, with many colleagues undertaking research
projects related to their practice. Therefore, we are looking to recruit
teachers who are keen to become the very best teachers whilst focusing on
ensuring excellent progress and the creation of firm foundations which will lead
to GCSE and A Level success.
Our new buildings which we occupied in
December 2022 are architecturally impressive and provide an exceptional
teaching environment with breath-taking views across the greenbelt and into
London. As well as a range of good-sized well-equipped classrooms the site
benefits from the following features:
welcoming and pleasant restaurant area for both staff and students which is set
at the heart of the school
studio, extensive gym, and assembly hall
Sixth Form social and study areas
performance spaces both in and outdoors
outdoor social and learning areas for both staff and students
The development of a second academy has
led to collaboration and innovation opportunities which benefit all staff and
have improved the provision of both schools. Many professional development
opportunities have been created which ensure that all colleagues are well
equipped and encouraged to be effective in their role. The Head of Music at
Wren Finchley is keen to work collaboratively with the successful candidate to
create excellent music provision across the Trust.
At Wren you will be given time to plan
and evaluate your lessons and intervention strategies. You will be part of a learning dialogue with
colleagues for which time is set aside.
Most importantly of all, you will be working with young people who are
talented and enthusiastic about their learning.
We believe that observing other teachers and having them observe you is
a professional entitlement and especially important given our focus on quality
first teaching. It is an expectation
that all Wren teachers will be confident and open in seeing lesson observation
as a key element of how we learn as professionals.
