Working at the Academy
Thank you for your interest in The Langley Academy - it is an exciting and fun place to work. An 11-19 academy with a thriving 6th Form, serving the young people of Langley, Slough and further afield.
Our recent expansion into a trust has served to broaden the opportunities available to our staff. As part of a trust, staff are not only able to witness the ‘school for life’ ethos in action but to take part and influence its development. At the Academy we believe that outstanding staff will deliver an atmosphere in which student curiosity will be ignited and learning will be student led. Many of our staff relish the idea that they will have an opportunity, should they choose, to engage with children from both the primary and the secondary phase. Read below for a more detailed view of what the Academy has to offer.
Imagine walking into school and the first thing you see is a tower of flags from around the world representing the nationalities of the students here. You look around and you spot the skeleton of a flying dinosaur floating in the middle of the cavernous atrium! To your left, a real aeroplane hangs from the ceiling and then looking down one ‘wing’ you see a boat, a ‘single scull’ called Thomi. Around you, professional standard museum display cases with priceless and ancient ceramics on loan from The Victoria and Albert Museum. Is this a museum?
The Langley Academy is not just another school - it is a new way of learning. As a member of staff, you will be part of a hard-working team who are passionate about developing our student’s potential.
At The Langley Academy you can use your imagination to create new ways to ignite students’ desire to learn. Our position as a Science Specialist School and national leaders in Museum Learning gives you resources and support to make your ingenious ideas a reality.
As the UK’s first museum school, The Langley Academy has a museum within the building. Hanging from the Atrium ceiling, our object installations are a dramatic teaching resource. As well as the list above, we currently house international costumes, a rowing boat, a 1950’s British Army car and a giant representation of the human DNA helix created by our own students.
We have a rolling programme of museum displays, combining students’ own work, travelling exhibitions and loans from local and national museums. You can work with the Museum Learning team to use objects in your lessons, make visits to inspiring places or invite in guest specialists to speak on your subject.
The Langley Academy is pleased to host a Resource Base (SRB) for students with a hearing impairment. We have also built up expertise in supporting students with a visual impairment. Hence the SRB - The Sensory Resource Base.We are looking for teaching and support staff that are motivated, enthusiastic and inspiring; those who have a ‘cup half full’ attitude and are solution focused; self-confident, motivated and ambitious; possess excellent interpersonal skills; can make tough decisions; have sound judgement, especially when working under pressure; have a life outside of school and, very importantly, have a fantastic sense of humour.
We are ideally situated, only minutes from junction 5 of the M4, the M25, and have excellent rail links into Central London. If you chose to live here, renting is cheaper than in London, and yet you can get into town quickly and cheaply. Windsor, Marlow and Henley are close and if you enjoy weekend travelling it takes about 15 min to Heathrow Airport. We border Buckinghamshire, perhaps the most beautiful of the Home Counties, on the western edge of London, with no less than 100,000 acres which are designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty - including a substantial part of the magnificently wooded Chiltern Hills. Whether you are into the outdoors or want to be close to London, working here is ideal.
As part of our commitment to support our staff and their wellbeing, we currently offer the following support and endeavour to develop this further:
We have a comprehensive INSET programme available to all staff, both ‘in-house’ and ‘external’. We offer a ‘gold standard’ NQT and ITT programme in association with our partner universities. In addition, all our teaching staff receive a laptop. The Academy hosts regular ‘well-being’ meetings and considers staff opinion to be of the highest importance.
