The Kingston Academy is a new outstanding Secondary School in North Kingston, which opened for the first time in September 2015 with a cohort of Year 7 pupils.  The school has grown annually by an additional year group until reaching capacity in 2021, with a full cohort of sixth form students.  TKA has received a substantial capital grant for the refurbishment of the existing educational facilities and for additional new modern buildings which we have now taken possession of. Our mission is to provide a world-class education for all the young people within our community to ensure that every pupil is safe, happy and succeeds.

We invite applications from candidates with the following attributes for this role:

  • Passionate about their subject;
  • Strong classroom practitioner, with the ability to engage pupils;
  • Flexible and committed to engage in the wider curriculum through our Going Beyond and enrichment activities.

Assessment Process

Our selection procedure will aim to identify with rigour whether the candidate fulfils the requirements of the post and will include the consideration of the candidate’s suitability to work with children and young people.  The process will include:

  • Lesson observation;
  • Meeting with a panel of our pupils for informal question and answer session;
  • Interview with Head Teacher and Senior Deputy Head Teachers.

We look forward to receiving your application.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

All relevant checks will be carried out to ensure that candidates meet child safe-guarding requirements.
