This position provides the ideal opportunity for an ambitious and dynamic PA with vision to help shape an ethos of care, respect, high achievement and challenge.

The school

The Totteridge Academy (TTA) is a fantastic secondary school in North London. With approximately 900 students, and a new Sixth Form which opened in September 2020, TTA is continuing to grow and develop. We are looking for passionate and enthusiastic staff to join our team. Here are some quotes from our 2021-22 staff survey:

“I feel 100% supported by my department and other staff. The student and teacher bond is like I've not seen before, which is amazing.”

“Teaching and learning is extremely well led, resulting in consistent teaching across the school and therefore much improved attainment from pupils. It is the single most stand-out quality in this school that makes me very proud, and has improved my teaching immensely”

“The culture of collaboration and continuous improvement is fantastic. I feel as though I would be welcomed, supported and appreciated by any member of staff.”

“The community is extremely supportive, and the staff genuinely care for the children, their education and supporting one another, both professionally and personally.”

“So many of the middle leaders are just world class. They lead by example and have relentlessly high expectations and good humour to boot. Teaching and learning at this school is exceptionally well led.”

We provide a high-quality education in a safe, caring, and focused environment. We teach skills and knowledge, enabling our students to become responsible, well-rounded citizens, equipped with the tools to make effective choices for their futures. We pride ourselves on our inclusive environment with a rich and nurturing culture. We celebrate our differences whilst standing together as a united learning community.

After a significant jump in GCSE results over the three years (pre-pandemic), we are continuing this upward trend. Our school philosophy of kaizen (continuous improvement) enables our students and staff to aim high at all times so that every individual can attain his or her best. We celebrate and are proud of the achievements of all of our students, valuing individuality and nurturing happy, confident, and hard-working young people.

We have high expectations at The Totteridge Academy and reject the view that success in life is pre-determined or that our talents are fixed. We improve through practice; calm, focused classrooms led by knowledgeable, passionate teachers.
