Secondary teaching opportunities

Sponsored by one of the world’s leading universities

Welcome

Thank you for your interest in The UCL Academy. We are pleased to have this opportunity to give you some details about our Academy and to describe the kind of person we hope to appoint.

The Academy opened in the autumn term of 2012 with 180 students in Year 7 and 125 students in Year 12. The Academy reached its full capacity of 1150 students by the autumn term of 2016. With our first set of ‘A’ Level results in August 2014, we are the second highest performing school in Camden for attainment and value added with 75% of our students going on to study at Russell Group Universities. For GCSE, progress is within the top 30% of schools nationally, with disadvantaged students achieving more strongly than others, bucking the national trend.

Working with our Sponsor, University College London, we have built an inspiring Academy which supports young people to develop as learners, and as ‘whole people’. The UCL Academy is an exciting, stimulating place to learn, with a curriculum which focuses on problem-solving, skills development and ‘real world’ issues. Our core aim is to provide the highest quality teaching in a first-rate learning environment, encouraging all students to be happy and to strive to be the very best. In June 2016,Oftsed judged us to be ‘Good’ in all areas with some outstanding features.

Key elements of the vision of The UCL Academy are:

  • Ensuring that students experience a transformational curriculum and pedagogy
  • Ensuring that the systems, cultures and standards support excellence
  • Contributing to the system as an internationally acclaimed training institution
  • Ensuring that meaningful networks support a coherent learning journey

This is an exciting opportunity for outstanding, ambitious teachers who are seeking to demonstrate that they are inspirational role models for research-informed teaching, lifelong learning, a commitment to the education of the whole person and education for the common good.

The successful candidate will work alongside senior staff, the sponsor and Governors to shape a new curriculum and to lead the development of outstanding practice in teaching and learning.

If you are someone with passion, expertise and vision we offer an opportunity to work in partnership with one of the world’s leading universities at a ground-breaking school.

I hope you are as excited by this opportunity as we are, as this is a challenging yet immensely rewarding opportunity.
