Teaching opportunities in London

Welcome from the Principal

Dear Applicant

Thank you for your interest in applying for a role at Westminster Academy. I enclose information about the Academy and the role and hope this provides a flavour of the Academy as well as an indication of the range of possibilities this post offers.

Our International Business and Enterprise Academy has had an exceptional journey since opening in 2006: from achieving among the poorest results in the country and receiving Notice to Improve, Westminster Academy has become one of the most improved schools in the UK; an Outstanding Academy with results now consistently exceeding the national average, the Sixth Form topping borough performance tables and the school gaining national recognition for its success. This has been achieved despite a challenging context: Westminster Academy is situated in one of the most deprived constituencies in the country, where there is a 20 year life expectancy gap between residents of Westbourne and the average Westminster resident. 73% of our students have been on free school meals and 89% speak English as an additional language, with high numbers of students with SEN and one or more multi-agency interventions. However, there is still much work to be done. We require someone who is committed to taking on challenges, with a long-term vision to build on the Academy’s current success and lead it through the next phase of development to ensure we are prepared and successful in the future.

At Westminster Academy you will be supported by an experienced and active Governing Body and a driven and passionate staff team, whose innovation, enthusiasm to learn and develop, and dedication to eliminating any barrier to success makes for a dynamic and inspiring working environment. Westminster Academy students form a fantastically diverse community, with ever increasing expectations of their own performance and an appreciation of the numerous opportunities they receive at the Academy via our wide range of business and community links.

I would like to thank you for your interest and warmly encourage you to find out more about this exciting opportunity.

Yours faithfully

Dr Saima Rana
