That is why what we do matters and why we are always seeking to improve our practice. As a Mathematics Teacher at Evelyn Grace you will join me and together, we will shape and develop our academy, and thereby realise our ambitions in building an outstanding school. 

Teaching is indeed a noble profession and to teach in a disadvantaged context is nobler still. However, to simply turn up and teach is never enough. Education is only transformational if every student has a consistent diet of six great lessons every single day. Great schools develop great teachers so that all students might secure the very best outcomes in their chosen subjects. Only then will our students be able to leave this school and compete for the very best positions in their chosen career. 

I intend for Evelyn Grace to be the school of choice in the local community, whose reputation is centred on great teaching, exemplary behaviour and unrivalled opportunities beyond the classroom. This will only be achieved through our collective efforts.

As teachers we know that there is no substitute for hard work and this, above all else, will help our students understand and achieve excellence. We will help each student gain a firm knowledge and understanding so that the passion for their subjects grows and matches that of every one of us. 

We are seeking to appoint a dedicated and enthusiastic individual who is passionate about education as a means of helping our students become cleverer and kinder every day. We believe that all our students can achieve excellence, no matter what their background and that they all deserve the very best teachers and resources to help them secure the very best qualifications. Accordingly, the Academy offers a rigorous curriculum and a broad enrichment programme for students at all key stages. 

Schools are not just a place of learning; they are a journey of self-discovery, intellectual enquiry and growth. That should be as true for every member of staff as it is our students. However, this goal is only possible if we work consistently and in harmony. 

Join us in our journey towards excellence for all. 

Yours faithfully,   

Tim Dainty
