Job summary

Holland Park is a school that recognises staff talent and seeks to reward it, where people’s values, attitudes as well as skills suggest that early promotion is mutually beneficial. Such promotion is always based on skills within the classroom, and leaders are expected to be amongst the best teachers in school. In relation to matters of workload, we understand the demands placed on teachers. This is why: we provide free tea and coffee served for teachers throughout the day; we run a shorter working year with staff development subsumed into twilight sessions; plan the school year, including detailed schemes of work, far in advance; we collect data only three times a year; we minimise split classes so that teachers see fewer students more intensively within a working week. The demands of marking and planning are significant enough and it is in the extraneous pressures – rather than the tasks integral to teaching – that we lighten colleagues’ loads. Our work in culturing a motivated and committed workforce has been recognised in the award of IIP platinum (2020).

We encourage you to read the school’s website closely, to read its 2014 Ofsted report and its history of examination performance. These are independent assessments of Holland Park and therefore helpful to you. Teachers are the most important resource in the school and we take our appointments very seriously indeed. At the same time, we also know that applicants are making a choice and that when teachers share the ethos of a school, learning is most powerfully and successfully supported. We hope that your investigation of the school reveals a place whose values you share and that you make your application with the same excitement with which it will be received.

An application form that should be completed electronically is available from the school’s website: https://www.hollandparkschool.co.uk/vacancies/vacancies. Early application is encouraged as we will seek to interview and appoint on receipt.
