Article ImageWe are seeking teachers to join us from September 2024.

We are interested to hear from great teachers from the Early Years Foundation Stage to Key Stage 2, to work in either our English stream or our English/French bilingual stream. 

We are currently seeking in particular:

 - a Year 6 teacher 

 - a part time teacher (bilingual stream)

 - a PE teacher 

For the above opportunities please apply by noon on Friday 17th May. 

At Belleville Wix Academy we have over 300 pupils, a fantastic staff team and a supportive school community. We share our site with Ecole de Wix, a French primary school, and three streams are offered on site: an English stream, a French stream and a joint bilingual stream provision. We are very proud of our unique bi-cultural ethos. It's a really interesting and innovative place to work (you do not need to speak French!). It would be wonderful to be able to show you around.

At Q1E, we believe that “the quality of an education system cannot exceed the quality of its teachers” (McKinsey 2007). The recruitment, retention and development of high quality teachers is our highest priority. 

Staff wellbeing is very important to us. We provide clear structures, excellent resources and outstanding professional development for our staff. All teachers new to the Trust receive pre-induction training before starting in post. We are an outward facing trust and believe in learning from the best schools and systems - you will have lots of opportunity to watch outstanding practice and get involved in wider projects across our dynamic Trust as well as be supported to progress in your teaching career.   There are opportunities for new teachers to take on leadership responsibilities for the right candidate. We are also open to part time working requests. 

We offer a high quality, well-resourced and carefully structured curriculum to support teacher wellbeing.  High quality specialist teachers are employed to teach PE, art, computing, music and French. We strive to meet the needs of all our children – doing ‘Whatever It Takes’ to help children fulfil their potential.  

We offer a range of staff benefits which include: Teachers’ Pension Scheme; free coffee and tea; free on-site parking; interest free ‘travel to work loan scheme’ and Cycle-to Work Scheme.

Our well maintained site is situated between vibrant Battersea and the open space of Clapham Common, so we also have excellent transport links. For example, our proximity to Clapham Junction station gives us easy access to central London and across the south of England. 

Who can apply: Applicants must have a suitable teaching qualification BA (Ed), BEd or PGCE (or equivalent). Applications from ECTs or more experienced teachers are welcome.
