We want you to join us on our journey in developing a new school which focuses not only on high academic expectations but also on developing the skills pupils need for the future workplace through an exciting Project Based Learning curriculum.
We are looking for someone who will feel part of our Grove family, share our vision and will enjoy working with us. We are looking for a teacher who is excited by a new challenge. Grove Academy can offer you unique experiences and hopefully fun!
Grove Academy is an all through school which opened in 2017 with both primary and secondary classes and will grow each year to a full capacity of 1,940 including a 6th form.
Our project based curriculum is developing via ‘Big Questions’ and enables all pupils to place their learning within a real life context with concrete experiences. We are working closely with local businesses and organisations to ensure that our pupils leave Grove Academy with the skills and character that employers seek. You could help us develop that curriculum, creating exciting experiences and happy memories for our pupils.
Grove is attempting to blur the lines between primary and secondary so that we can learn from the best practices of both. As a result staff can work with colleagues from different phases and help us shape an unusual offer for our pupils. Our new school building has been designed to ensure that we can work as one school, with one vision.
What can we offer you?
• A place where you will feel valued for your hard work
• Experiences you cannot get anywhere else
• Innovative CPD packages because we want to invest in you
• As the school grows so will the leadership pathways available to suitable candidates because our philosophy is to ‘grow our own’ where possible
We are looking for a teacher who:
• Has the imagination to help develop our project based learning curriculum.
• Is excited by the chance to be with us at the beginning of this amazing journey.
• Recognises they need to be flexible as the school grows and in turn we will provide experiences they cannot get anywhere else.
• Who can also make learning fun!
Can you think outside of the box and see this as a fantastic opportunity to help us create a magical curriculum? If so …. Grove Academy is the place for you!
We strongly recommend that you ring to discuss the post further, please contact Ms Andrea Fricker, Principal, at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you email with your telephone number a member of the team will try to ring you back. Your next job is an important step and we want to ensure we are the right place for you. We are currently in temporary accommodation in the centre of Slough whilst a new school is built in the west of the town. Please see the application pack for details of the exciting design for the new school. Now that will be magical!
