What skills and experience we're looking for

We are really excited to have the opportunity to advertise for a Head of Year to join us in September. We are looking for an ambitious teacher who is keen to progress their career within the pastoral system and who has a strong desire to work closely with students and their families to ensure they have a great school experience. We are currently looking to recruit teachers of RE, Technology, English and Geography for September and would look to one of those also being a Head of Year.

Heads of Year at Slough and Eton lead a team of six Form Tutors, one of which will be their Deputy. There are 180 students in each year group and Heads of Year travel up the school with their tutor team and students. There is a team of non-teaching staff who strengthen the pastoral support we offer to students and Heads of Year work closely with that team.

Being a Head of Year is a great opportunity to shape and influence the lives of students as they grow into adults. Adults remember fondly a great Head of Year and as students they value the personalised support that role can offer. If this excites you then we’d like to hear from you.

Primarily we want a great Head of Year who can enthuse their year group, deliver great assemblies and maintain high standards of both conduct and achievement. If the subject specialisms we are currently recruiting for are not your subject but you would be interested in applying for the Head of Year role then please contact our HR Manager to discuss the vacancy. Contact details are given below.

Slough and Eton is a great school on the outskirts of Slough, which serves the Chalvey community. We are relentlessly focused on ensuring great teaching, learning and experiences are at the core of what we do. It is an exciting time for us and our students are a pleasure to work with.
