“An OUTSTANDING school demonstrating strong practice in Behaviour, Safety, Leadership and Management.”     Ofsted

An exciting opportunity has arisen to appoint a suitably qualified Teacher of Psychology who has a real enthusiasm for the subject and the learning process.  The post would equally suit a newly qualified or an experienced teacher who has obtained a good degree in Psychology or transferrable discipline.   For ECTs, three weeks’ work in July is offered as an induction to the school.

We are looking for a dynamic and ambitious teacher to further raise achievement, add value and be able to work autonomously developing curriculums.  We are well resourced and have access to excellent ICT resources to support learning.

Vyners is a very popular and oversubscribed mixed eight form entry, 11-18 comprehensive school, situated in a pleasant residential area in North West London, bordering Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire.    We have a track record of real success at all Key Stages.  In 2019, 87% of students achieved grades 9-4 in both English and Maths at GCSE and we are consistently ranked in the top 10% of all schools nationally for progress measures and attainment.   At A-Level 33% of all grades were A* - A  and 54% A* - B.   The school converted to academy status on 1 November 2011 and is part of the Vanguard Learning Trust which also includes one other secondary and one primary school.

We are well known for high academic standards, good behaviour, and our strong community spirit including a strong house system with students leading their peers.  “Pupils have a positive attitude towards their work and enjoy learning” (Ofsted 2019).  Many students are involved in extracurricular sport, music and drama, performing at a high level including prestigious public events and performing in our own school productions. 

We offer you:

A well established and well respected Continual Professional Development program.

Creative opportunities and mentoring for continual career progression.

A friendly, innovative and exciting community in which to work.
