About London Enterprise Academy

Dear Applicant,

Thank you for taking the time to find out more about London Enterprise Academy (LEA). This pack is intended to give you information about the role and our school’s vision and ethos.
The academy opened in a refurbished office block in the heart of London’s East end to its first cohort of Year 7 students in September 2014. The academy is easily accessible from Aldgate East, Whitechapel and Shadwell stations.

We aim to be outstanding in all areas and become a centre of excellence in everything we do. Staff at LEA are reflective, committed professionals, willing to do whatever it takes for our students to achieve the very best results. All students are encouraged to continue their education and to progress to university. We work closely with local universities and employers to achieve this vision, and to give students access to a level of expertise rarely seen in the state sector. Our first set of GCSE results in Summer 2019 was above National Average for both progress and attainment.

In addition to offering a broad and balanced curriculum, the academy places particular emphasis on the development of enterprise skills. We have been able to develop links with the employers in the city of London and Canary Wharf to provide mentoring to our students.

At LEA we develop students who have a passion for learning and enquiry, and the maturity to self-direct their studies and take control of their own futures.

The successful candidate will join my team in order to lead and manage the development of the academy.

This role represents a unique opportunity to join an academy with the highest expectations for students and staff, and to help shape the future of the academy.

Our facilities include modern classrooms fitted with the latest technology to make working and learning fun and exciting. All our teachers are supplied with their own iPads and students have access to iPads for use in lessons. In a relatively short time we have made huge progress. We have international schools award, eco schools award, Leading Parental Partnership Award. Many pupils have completed DoE, visited Barcelona, Seville and Brussels, awarded Maths Gold, and members of MENSA.

Our Ofsted inspection has not judged the school fairly as progress and attainment is above National Average (GCSE English Grade 4 plus is 79% and maths is 74%). We have a robust action plan which will ensure that we are making sustained progress to get the school to Good.

I am looking for someone who has the necessary skills, drive and experience to excel in this role, and who can set the standard for teachers who join us year on year as the academy grows.

As Principal there is no greater priority for me than the recruitment and development of staff. My aim at LEA is to create a school which is truly exceptional in everything it does. To do that I need an exceptional team. I understand that I will be asking a lot from the staff, but in return I can promise extensive support and development opportunities.

If after reading the enclosed information you would like to apply, please complete the application form that can be found online at www.londonenterpriseacademy.org and return it via e-mail to Cheryl Beckley Cheryl.Beckley@londonenterpriseacademy.org . If you have any queries please contact me directly on 020 7426 0746.

I look forward to receiving your application.
