About United Learning

United Learning is a unique group of independent and state schools working together to achieve the best in everyone. Our vision is to provide excellent education so that all young people are able to make a success of their lives and, if we are to realise this vision, we need to make sure we attract, develop and reward the key ingredient – you.

Job Introduction

Opportunity to play a role in the development of our highly successful Academy.

We seek an outstanding and innovative Teacher of Science to join a dynamic and supportive faculty. We are looking for someone who is committed to securing high standards of learning and teaching in order to raise academic achievement. There will also be the opportunity to contribute to our large enrichment programme and share expertise across a growing group of Academies and independent schools within United Learning.

As a Teacher of Science you will be a passionate, dedicated and outstanding teacher who can take responsibility for the rapid progress of the students you teach. We offer all three sciences at A Level and so at Walthamstow Academy you will have the opportunity to teach science across all three Key Stages. We know that outstanding teachers have transferable skills and are confident and effective in all aspects of their role but we also recognise that you will need support and challenge yourself so that you can grow to be the best you can be – we will make this happen. Whether you are an experienced teacher or someone very early on in your career, we take pride in our CPD offer and our teacher training provision. For Early Career Teachers, we offer bespoke weekly mentoring, online self-study and regular feedback, and we are partnered with Ambition Institute to deliver this training.

You will relate to the Academy’s ethos of “the best in everyone” and enjoy working with a rich, diverse group of young people in a dynamic and vibrant learning environment. Walthamstow Academy is sponsored by United Learning. As part of the largest group of Academies and independent schools, we offer outstanding professional development and career progression across both the maintained and independent sector.

To conclude, we need someone who is passionate about making a difference, please get in touch.
Main Responsibilities
• To teach Science across Key Stage 3 and 4 (and Key Stage 5 with experience)
• To encourage all pupils to have the highest possible aspirations and develop positive attitudes to learning
• To enable all pupils to reach the highest standards of which they are capable
• To contribute actively to the personalised learning experience and the achievement of all the pupils that you teach or support
• To foster students’ interest in your subject and to promote its contribution to their overall learning experience
Working for us
Walthamstow Academy opened its impressive new building in 2006 and since then we have achieved excellent results both at GCSE and at A Level. In 2019, Walthamstow Academy students achieved a Progress 8 score of 0.4. At A-Level, our students achieve excellently with many of them progressing to Russell Group institutions. Because we are so successful, the school is now full and oversubscribed on first choices alone.
We do not achieve these results by accident. At Walthamstow Academy, we believe in the best in everyone. We have a relentless focus on high expectations and aim to identify barriers to success and provide necessary support as quickly as possible to ensure our students achieve. We do not accept excuses and always strive for the best.
The Academy is proud of its multi-cultural character, and we celebrate the diversity of heritage in our community. 90% of our students are from minority ethnic groups, many coming from African, Caribbean, Eastern European, Turkish and Pakistani communities.
Within the community served by the academy there is social and economic disadvantage with 40% of students being eligible for Pupil Premium. Almost 60% have a first language other than English and a significant number have low levels of literacy on entry. Many students enter the Academy with low levels of attainment and the staff work hard to add value to their performance. Standards across the Academy are above national averages in most subjects.
The Academy is located close to the North Circular Road, M11 and both Blackhorse Road and Walthamstow Central underground stations from where it takes about half an hour to get into central London. The Academy is situated in a part of London where property prices are still relatively inexpensive and within easy access of Epping Forest, the Lee Valley and rural Hertfordshire and Essex.
Walthamstow Academy has achieved the CPLD Gold Award in recognition of our investment in professional development, because we know that without our wonderful staff, what we have achieved would not be possible, so thank you for your interest in coming to work with us. It starts with someone like you believing you can contribute further to our community.
