As part of the Thinking Schools Academy Trust, we aim to guide our students to become successful, well rounded and confident individuals with the ability to achieve their personal best.

After the school’s 'Good' Ofsted judgement in November 2014, the school I am working with has continued to make rapid progress towards becoming one of the most successful grammar schools in the South-East. The Science department has transformed over the last few years. The Business and Economics department have performed well at GCSE with 39% and 40% A*/A respectively and, at A level, 64% and 53% A*-B. They are now seeking a motivated and talented colleague to join the Department as we drive towards becoming a Thinking School, and bring about further improvements in student achievement.

He or she will be fully acquainted with the demands and requirements of the new KS4 and KS5 curricula.
