Welcome to Barking Abbey school and thank you for expressing an interest in applying for a position here.

For me there are three simple things that I want us to achieve at Barking Abbey school.

First, our motto ‘Give and Expect the best’ leads us to want to be the best in everything we do. We have some of the best results in the area, we have pupils at the best universities, we have the most pupils on apprenticeships in the entire country, we have basketball players in the best leagues and so much more. We have all of this because we push our pupils and each other to excel. All of us try to be our best every day.

Second, I firmly believe that if you can’t see it you can’t be it. We want to give our pupils the chance to see successful people of every religion, colour and background whilst they are at school. Whatever their dreams
we want to support them and provide the networks and contacts to help them to achieve.

Finally, we want our pupils to have a voice in the world. To be confident enough to express their views and also to have the knowledge to be able to make an effective contribution. The more you know the more
powerful you can be in the world.

Sir Tim Brighouse said “If a teacher makes the weather the school creates the climate.” and I firmly believe this. It is our role as a leadership team to create the best possible learning environment for our teachers
to teach in. In return we expect the best possible teaching from them and our results show this over time.

We have created systems and structures that support high quality learning, whilst minimising workload and maximising impact.
Our recent Ofsted report indicated that the school could be judged outstanding and so we are expecting them back to confirm this view. The report states; “Pupils learn and achieve very well. Pupils across both sites
are happy and safe at Barking Abbey School. Pupils are motivated to work hard and enjoy positive working relationships with staff. Students new to the sixth form commented on how welcoming, inclusive and diverse
the community is. Teachers feel listened to and well supported.” (Ofsted, December 2022)

If you share our ethos and values and absolutely believe in the potential of all young people then we can offer you the chance to make a difference and change our community for the better, and look forward to receiving
your application form and welcoming you to our school.
