“The school succeeds in dispelling the myths and stereotypes that are sometimes associated with boys’ schools.” – Challenge Partners Report
Isleworth & Syon School is a great place to work and a place where teachers can develop. Our staff are energetic, dedicated and absolutely committed to working together in order to ensure that our boys (and students in our mixed Sixth Form) remain ambitious and highly successful.
We have a history of excellence, are a high-performing school and are part of the ‘Leading Edge’ network. Our progress measures at GCSE level are significantly above those for boys nationally and at all levels progress and attainment scores are well above national scores.
Relationships are critical to our success and to our future. We empower our staff and encourage everyone to work collegially in departments to create shared resources so that planning time can be spent refining rather than re-inventing lessons. Good practice is shared and all staff contribute ideas to further enhance the curriculum. Our school is systematically organised and pastoral processes are tightly managed to allow staff to build professional relationships with students, in order to create excellent learning environments.
Across the school, students benefit from our insistence on high standards and achievement, an exceptional range of extra-curricular activities, and the focus on traditional values. We are looking for a colleague that aspires to be part of a great team of staff and who will enjoy contributing to the successes of all our students.
Our Geography Department
We wish to appoint an inspiring geography teacher who is looking to join a highly supportive humanities faculty. We have one position available and will accept applications for a mainscale post or for a teacher looking to develop their career by taking on some additional responsibility. For the latter, the specific responsibility will be negotiated on appointment but will be related to supporting the continued success of teaching and learning in geography.
The successful candidate will enjoy working with boys and will thrive on sharing in the successes of our students. Standards across the school are well above those for boys nationally in all measures, including for geography. The subject is extremely popular at both GCSE and A level and many students further their studies at university from our highly successful mixed Sixth Form.
We recognise that our staff are our greatest resource. Therefore, we are ambitious for our staff and invest heavily in their development. We offer an extensive programme of professional development which offers a range of opportunities for training, including internally, through local and national programmes. We have strong partnerships with universities and higher education institutions and actively support staff pursuing heavily subsidised Masters degrees and other higher qualifications. There will also be opportunities for internal promotion and to collaborate within our local partnership of schools.
We are situated in a tree-lined neighbourhood of Isleworth, a vibrant area of West London. The school is close to Osterley Park and a short hop from central London by tube (Osterley is a 10-minute walk) or rail (Isleworth is a 7-minute walk). There is easy access to the M3, M4 and Heathrow Airport.
We welcome enquiries from everyone and value diversity in our workforce. We want to make sure we are attracting the widest possible range of people and ensure that they are accepted, understood and treated equally when they work here. This means we will work hard to understand that each employee is unique and ensuring that individuals or groups are not treated differently or less favourably on the basis of specific characteristics. Such characteristics include (but are not limited to) age, disability, gender including transgender, race, religion, sexual orientation, marital status, and how the school supports pregnant women and new parents.
You are very welcome to arrange to visit us and to experience why we are such a successful school and a fantastic place to develop your career.
