This large all-through academy is based in Edgware, with good local transport links and a popular choice for families in the local area. Alongside their main Secondary Academy they have created a smaller self-contained Primary Academy. In this specially designed building pupils have the best of both worlds with a quiet space away from the main academy to grow and develop with facilities specifically designed for younger children, but with the benefits of the resources of the secondary phase. There is a strong leadership team in place within the Primary Academy and staff and pupils enjoy a smaller, community atmosphere. There are good opportunities for professional development across the academy so this is a great option for graduates and those looking to further their career in education.

This is a fantastic opportunity if you are looking for a general class teaching assistant position.
