An opportunity has arisen, to lead a talented, highly motivated and supportive group of teachers who have contributed to securing the Academy’s outstanding OFSTED status, exceptional examination success and a successful Sixth Form. 

Located in the London Borough of Barnet, Wren Academy is sponsored by the Church of England and Berkhamsted School. The academy has developed a strong reputation for outstanding teaching and learning, as demonstrated by our Progress 8 figure, which places us in the top 100 schools nationally. We are an all-through school with an established Sixth Form and a primary phase which opened in 2015. The engaging curriculum, and state of the art buildings have contributed to the Academy’s notable success.

The academy is a forward-thinking establishment and welcomes colleagues who are enthusiastic and ready to help create powerful and effective learning experiences for all students. Performing Arts is a thriving community of students, parents and staff from across the academy and one that plays an important role in the academy’s identity. The Drama department works closely with the Music department and the academy has developed a strong tradition for whole academy productions to a very high standard. Drama is taught as a compulsory subject at Key Stage 3 with Year 9 students given the opportunity to choose to study Drama for an additional hour each week. The department offers GCSE, BTEC and A Level Drama as well as an extensive programme of extracurricular performances and trips. The curriculum is innovative and explores a wide range of dramatic genre, styles and techniques. Drama is a high profile subject and one that achieves excellent examination results.

Wren is a MAT and plans are well advanced to build new schools which will provide exciting professional development opportunities for the successful candidate.

We wish to appoint a colleague to this post who has: 

  • Outstanding teaching and interpersonal skills.
  • The drive and creativity to lead on an extensive extracurricular Drama programme.
  • A strong Drama background with the ability to teach GCSE, BTEC and A Level Drama.
  • The experience and capacity to teach A Level Drama.
  • Evidence of ambition and a commitment to continuing professional development.
  • The desire to maximise the performance of all students and ensure the very best progress for all.
