About our school:

We are a diverse and vibrant academy, having every language on the DfE census represented in the Academy. We are proud to be a true comprehensive school and we maintain this comprehensive intake right through into our 6th form.

 

We place the curriculum – what we teach – at the heart of the academy and it informs all decisions we make. We are looking for someone who shares our belief in disciplinary thinking and who will help improve and refine our curriculum thinking.

 

In the words of Alex Standish, we believe that “school subjects then are a way of inducting children into the intellectual habits of humankind, and hence into a disciplinary conversation about knowing our world” and we are looking for someone who shares this belief to join our team.
