We are now on the next stage of the journey to becoming a truly great school at the heart of the community we serve.

Music is offered at KS4 and is a popular option – the successful candidate will be expected to teach across the full age range of the academy. We have excellent facilities and believe that music should be an integral part of Academy life with a range of opportunities for pupils to showcase their talents.

• Passionate about enabling every child to exceed expectations
• An enthusiastic, determined and successful classroom practitioner
• Able to motivate, challenge and inspire pupils to succeed
• Committed to ensuring high expectations for pupils, staff and themselves
• Well organised, an excellent communicator and keen to take an active role in academy life beyond the classroom

We offer:
• Fantastic pupils with enormous potential
• Staff who are supportive to each other and enjoy working collaboratively
• Personalised programme of professional development and coaching for all staff including a highly rated IMPACT programme for all teachers and a July 1st start date for ECTs
• A modern building, in a delightful setting and excellent resources
• Excellent public transport and road links across London and Kent
• Fully equipped gym and fitness suite, Season Ticket Loan, Childcare Vouchers, Cycle-to-work scheme, Tech Scheme, Employee Assistance Programme
• A strong commitment to staff well-being

We value the importance of diversity in our community and the significance of having staff that are representative of the children we teach. We particularly welcome applications from black and minority ethnic candidates as these groups are currently under represented within the Academy.

Our school motto is ‘let your light shine’ and we ensure that we live this vision every day.
