Teddington School is part of Bourne Education Trust (‘BET’) - a regional multi-academy trust made up of sixteen schools, across both primary and secondary phases.
Specialising in supporting schools to improve their performance, BET continues to grow a community of high performing academies with the highest aspiration and dedication to achieving the best outcomes for their learners.
Led by Alex Russell, CEO, and supported by an executive team and board of directors, BET's 1,050 staff currently educate over 7,700 pupils.
BET is a fast moving and exciting place to work with every school within our Trust free to shape their individual character. Our brilliant teachers, support staff and leaders share a commitment to providing a first-class education to the children within their schools and as a Trust we strive to ensure that our provision enables every child to fulfil their potential.
Our people are the key to our success and for this reason we believe in creating great places to work where people feel supported and encouraged to be the best they can possibly be.
Staff within our schools can expect to be challenged and motivated to achieve their ambitions, and such is the scale and scope of the Trust’s school-to-school support work, successful candidates can expect to:
Work in a high performing and supportive environment with dedicated high quality induction, coaching and mentoring programmes
Develop their teaching pedagogy within a culture of collaboration and sharing of best practice
Receive focussed career planning and professional development advice, which can result in rapid promotion either through direct placement or via secondments
Work with our teaching school partner to successfully navigate your NQT status, if applicable, and receive support in achieving your qualified teacher status in the UK if you have come from abroad
Work within an organisation that prioritises staff well-being, supports effective planning, preparation and administrative time as well as access to high quality shared resources and the opportunity to work a shorter academic year than most.
