Job Description and Person Specification

Avanti House is an all-through 4-19 school which opened in 2012. It comprises a two-form entry primary school and a six-form entry secondary. When full, in around 2020, it will provide for 1680 students; projected currently to be the largest Free School in the UK.

Currently the secondary phase has students in years 7 –11. It is anticipated that the sixth form will open with between 90 and 140 students (internal and external). Although the secondary phase is currently, temporarily located in a site in Pinner, we have secured full planning permission for a new £20 million build on Whitchurch Fields in Stanmore, Harrow. The school will move there, once built, sometime in 2018.

Avanti schools secure exceptional outcomes for learners who make outstanding progress. But our vision is more than one simply rooted in achieving excellent results. In our uniquely holistic provision, character formation and spiritual insight stand side-by-side with educational excellence. Our ethos, which blends the traditional with the modern, embraces practices such as mindfulness, yoga, meditation and a vegetarian diet – all resting on a foundation which draws upon the spiritual and philosophical teachings of the Vaishnava sect of the Hindu tradition. This has led Ofsted to reflect, in all of our schools to date and including Avanti House School, commenting on how our ethos contributes to outstanding behaviour.

For September 2017, we are looking to appoint a Mathematics Teachers. You will be looking for a new and very different challenge and if appointed, would support the Head of Mathematics and other key stakeholders in delivering outstanding teaching and learning provision.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. The post is subject to an enhanced DBS check and satisfactory references.
