Our Ethos: If you think you know what working in a Jewish school might be like, be ready to think again.  Our outward-looking and pluralist Jewish ethos combines an embrace of open-minded values with a deep love of the varied riches of Jewish tradition.  The staff and leadership team includes different faiths and none at all levels, and the school has a culture of purposeful good humour and humanity.

Our Results: We have a track record of outstanding academic results and our 2019 outcomes earned us the title of Sunday Times Greater London State Secondary of the Year 2020.  44% of A level grades were at A*or A, a quarter of the cohort scored at least two A grades, while 70% of Level 3 vocational grades were at Distinction or better.  In 2019 and the two years since, half of GCSE grades were at 7 or higher, a third of students achieving at least 8 GCSEs at grade 7 or better.  Our ALPS grade has been consistently 2 at both A level and GCSE, and our 2019 ‘Progress 8’ score was 0.68. Nine students gained places at Oxbridge in 2021, and (as is typical) students secured places for Medicine, Art, Architecture & Media and other competitive courses at prestigious institutions.

Staff Benefits: We appoint on potential as well as experience, and we are committed to supporting staff development.  Several non-teaching colleagues have trained with us as teachers; our rich CPL programme includes full induction for new teaching staff including NQTs, NPQH/SL/ML programmes, and financial support for MA courses, Action Research projects and many other opportunities.  Additional responsibilities are always considered for suitable candidates and we offer NQTs employment for the last few weeks of the summer term.  Our admissions policy includes priority places for the children of all staff*.

We need someone with expertise in the field, a knowledge of JCQ and Ofqual Regulations and Guidance, and confident in making decisions.  They will be proactive and flexible, skilled in and committed to the progress and inclusion of SEND students, and able to communicate with colleagues, parents and students.
