Thank you for expressing an interest in the post of Sociology Teacher, maternity cover at Clapton Girls’ Academy.
We are an outstanding 11-19 academy. We prioritise high quality learning and teaching to ensure successful student achievement. Our students are keen to learn and a pleasure to teach. We provide a warm and welcoming learning environment with a strong team of committed teachers and support staff. Staff can develop their teaching practice through a number of opportunities, including ongoing CPD, access to a range of courses and through our status as a World Class School and leading member of the Hackney Teaching Schools Alliance (HTSA).
Student outcomes at Clapton Girls’ Academy are outstanding. Results have been on a positive trajectory for the past 4 years. 87% of our students achieved grade 9-4 in both English and Maths in 2021. Progress is outstanding with students achieving on average a whole grade higher than expected in all GCSE subjects. This has been achieved with a cohort where approximately half of students are from disadvantaged backgrounds and results achieved by these students are significantly better than similar students nationally. Our popular sixth from continues to grow. Our Key Stage 5 results are among the best in Hackney and our results for A Level and BTEC are in the top 1% of sixth forms nationally.
Sociology falls within our social sciences faculty which also contains Health & Social Care and Psychology which enables strong collaborative working between the subjects. Results for Sociology at Key Stage 4 and 5 are regularly in the top 10% nationally. The faculty is forward thinking, supportive, well resourced, student focused and progressive.
We are looking for staff who are committed to developing confident and capable learners. We expect hard work, skill and dedication, and in return will provide an excellent working environment, competitive rates of pay and a comprehensive staff benefits package.
We are proud of our stance as an anti-racist school and recognise the importance of having a staff body that reflect Hackney’s rich and diverse community. If you have the experience and passion to be an inspirational role model for the next generation of female leaders, then we want to see how we can support you in that pursuit. We particularly welcome applications from people from groups who are under- represented amongst teaching staff. We want the best staff, and we know that means a diverse staff.
