Recruitment

Recruitment and development of exceptional teachers will always be the first priority of our school. The much quoted 2007 McKinsey report into effective education systems concluded, “no education system can exceed the quality of its teachers.” Of course, the same is true of any school. At KAA, teaching and learning is our core business, and we focus continually on improving our classroom practice. Our internal training, coaching, mentoring and lesson observation systems are of a national standard. So, whether you are at the start of your teaching career, or someone with many years of experience in the classroom, if you come and work for us you will be given professional development opportunities which are second to none. This means you will need to be reflective, open and committed to your ongoing development. “At KAA we are all learners” is one of our mantras.

More details about KAA

Kensington Aldridge Academy (KAA) is a vibrant new 11 – 18 school in the heart of Notting Hill, West London. Aldridge Education is the lead sponsor of the academy, and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Cheslea, London’s highest attaining local authority, is the co-sponsor. We currently have 920 students in Years 7, 8, 9, 10, 12 & 13 with us. By September 2018 we will be a full school with all seven year groups.

KAA is part of a £66 million development called the Kensington Academy and Leisure Centre project. We opened in brand new buildings in 2014 and our facilities are second to none. We have specialist resources in drama, music, art, design technology, sport and dance. Students have extensive use of the leisure centre and all staff benefit from discounted membership.

Sir David Carter, the National Schools’ Commissioner, said of KAA in 2016: “I was inspired by my visit to KAA. David Benson and his team have made a fantastic start and are well on the road to establishing a truly great school.” At KAA we offer a quality and standard that are unique in the state sector, partnered as we are with the Godolphin & Latymer and Charterhouse independent schools and LAMDA and the Royal Academy of Dance.

At KAA we are working to build an exceptional school with the highest possible standards and to do that, of course, we need an exceptional staff team. We ask a lot from our staff, expecting them to deliver excellent lessons, day in day out. We also provide extensive support and professional development opportunities. In a start-up school, with a central focus on teaching and learning, you will have the space to extend your classroom skills which would be hard to find elsewhere.

More information about the academy is available in the school prospectus and Sixth Form prospectus.
