Job Description

Richmond Park Academy (RPA), is part of the Academies Enterprise Trust (AET) group and is situated in East Sheen, close to Richmond Park. Richmond, Kingston and the West End are all between 15 and 30 minutes journey from the school and our proximity to central London means that students can benefit enormously from the vast range of social, cultural, sporting and academic opportunities that we are able to access.

Our student body is diverse, exciting and talented - and the same is true of our staff.  We put huge emphasis on professional development, most of it in-house, and are proud of the high number of good and outstanding teachers who work in our Academy.  We are also noted for our 'can do' attitude.  We are keen, always, to encourage new and/or young staff to make their mark as soon as they are ready.

The Academy completed a £10m rebuild and refurbishment programme, including the introduction of a 6th form in 2014. Our December 2017 Ofsted reported that we were a 'good' school in all categories.  The inspectors judged: "The principal is respected across the school and has communicated a clear vision for the school to all members of the school community. He has empowered the leadership team to raise standards and hold staff to account for pupils' outcomes through a relentless focus on improving teaching and learning. Staff feel well supported and happy to be part of the drive for improvement". 

If you are a high performing and experienced science teacher looking for the next step in your career this role could be for you?  Similarly if you are already an outstanding Lead Practitioner with a proven track record we would like to hear from you.

We need you to inspire others, helping colleagues to develop and improve their practice for the benefit of the students to ensure the continued success of this department and the Academy on our journey to 'Outstanding'. You will embody the Academy's ethos for the delivery of outstanding teaching.

If you wish to be a part of our team you will be an outstanding Science specialist with a passion and flair for the subject and the teaching of it. He or she will be an ambitious, committed and hardworking team player who can inspire and motivate others, be a problem solver as well as a highly effective communicator

As the sponsor, the AET believes that all young people deserve to become world-class learners - to learn, enjoy, succeed and thrive in a first rate educational environment with the best facilities, the best teaching and the most up-to-date resources available to them. In each of the AET academies, you will benefit from visionary, inspirational and dynamic leadership and be empowered to develop your own skills with access to world-class CPD and Talent Management programmes.

This position is required to commence January or Easter 2019.

Closing date: Thursday 13 December 9am with interviews scheduled for Monday 17 December 2018.

We reserve the right to close this vacancy early should we receive an overwhelming response.  All candidates are advised to refer to the job description and person specification before making an application.
