Applications are welcome from resourceful individuals, with a track record of high-quality classroom practice and evidence of effective leadership. A commitment to securing good progress for every student across the 11-16 age range and forming positive relationships with young people is essential.

We are full partners in the Braintree Sixth Form, which provides opportunities for some of our staff to teach at Key Stage 5. The school works in close partnership with Saffron Walden County High School, one of the highest performing schools in Essex, within the Saffron Academy Trust. Numerous opportunities for professional development exist through this partnership and our membership of several local networks, including two teaching school alliances.

Our school is committed to safeguarding and protecting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment. A Disclosure and Barring Service Check at enhanced level will be required for this post.
