At Ashcroft Technology Academy you will work in teams of highly educated and very motivated teachers, support staff and leaders. Our staff are passionate about their work and we have a well-established culture of sharing best practice and of encouraging staff to grasp opportunities so that they can progress professionally.
We are therefore looking to recruit well-educated and enthusiastic professionals so that we can achieve even greater success.
About Ashcroft Technology Academy
Ashcroft Technology Academy has 1070 students in Years 7 to 11, and a further 245 students in the 6th Form. Our 6th Form is amongst the very best performing post-16 providers in Wandsworth and we are six times oversubscribed in Year 7.
Our local community is attracted to us because of our outstanding results and because of our rigorous expectations on behaviour coupled with traditional values.
We take the ‘business’ of education very seriously. We believe that students can only give of their very best and achieve well if they are able to learn in a well-ordered and well-managed environment. In order to achieve this, we operate a very strict discipline code which promotes positive learning behaviours. Our teachers and support staff are crucial in managing this environment, which we know they cannot do entirely on their own. You will be very well-supported in the Academy by the Leadership Group so that you can easily deliver and support in lessons in an environment in which students are not known to disrupt learning.
In fact, the support you will receive from all staff will be second to none. In departments there is a strong sense of camaraderie, new members of staff are assigned a ‘buddy’ and we operate a breakfast PD schedule, termly PD activities and a whole host of extra-curricular activities and trips – so you will very quickly be able to involve yourself in all aspects of Academy life and get to know colleagues in all subject areas.
Whichever stage of your career you are at, we are looking for people who share our drive and ambition to give our students an outstanding learning experience.
